Although LeBron James is set to become the latest cast member for the Real Lakers of Los Angeles, he got pulled into a bit of a reunion earlier this month with one of his mates from Keeping Up With The Kavs.

The end of the story: everything between Draymond Green and Tristan Thompson was quashed by night's end. Nothing much came of it at the time, as the two players were separated, but Thompson did invite Green to continue the fracas off the court.

Thompson and the rest of the Cavs were obviously frustrated after blowing their chance of stealing a game in Golden State, and Draymond knew how to push their buttons in the waning minutes.

Then, after Golden State's four-game sweep, the former NBA Defensive Player of the Year refused to shake hands with Thompson.

Reports from Bossip and The Big Lead, which were also picked up by other U.S. sports media outlets, said the incident happened inside LA nightspot Delilah during a private party after the ESPY Awards last July 18. Thompson reports that Tristan attacked Green "out of nowhere", and a source called the attack a "sucker punch", while another said it was more of a "face mush". The same report had Kevin Durant and LeBron breaking up the scuffle. However, Tristan Thompson allegedly "felt embarrassed" by what had happened during Game 4 and "unloaded" on Green. However, Thompson reports James and Durant were among "several National Basketball Association stars" who jumped in, so portraying the former MVPs as the only peacemakers might not be entirely accurate.

According to that report, both players remained at the party without incident after that initial altercation.

"Emotions have flared up on multiple occasions now between the two that Tristan really expects their feud to roll over to next season and he wouldn't be surprised if they fought again", a source close to number 13 tells EXCLUSIVELY.

How are fans reacting to the report?

The NBA offseason never disappoints.
