I hate all sports, but there’s one basketball game I’m livid I didn’t attend: the Toronto Raptors–Cleveland Cavaliers match on Tuesday night (May 1), where people started chanting Khloé Kardashian’s name to throw off Tristan Thompson.
Tristan, if you don’t know, is a power forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers. He’s also Khloé Kardashian’s boyfriend who reportedly cheated on her just days before she gave birth to their daughter, True. Kim Kardashian more or less confirmed this on The Ellen DeGeneres show last week when she said Khloé’s doing “the best she can” and that her situation is just “so fucked up.” Regardless of the truth, though, fans are using this story as a way to throw off Thompson’s basketball performance—and that’s the kind of petty drama I live for.
So here’s what happened. Right before Thompson shot his free throws in the playoff game against the Raptors last night, a wave of people in the crowd began shouting, “Khloé! Khloé! Khloé!” But did the intimidation work? Not exactly: Thompson made his throws, and the Cavs ultimately won the game 113–112. Watch this go down for yourself, below:

Win or lose, Twitter is cheering for these (apparently) TMZ-obsessed sports fans. And I am too. Had I known I could talk celebrity gossip at a basketball game, I would’ve attended way more. Here are some hilarious responses to the drama that we found:

This is almost as good as when someone brought a “We love Khloé” sign to a Cavs game last month.

Khloé hasn’t commented on this situation yet, but something tells me she’ll have millions of people in her corner when she does. And they’ll chant for her loudly.
