NBA Fan Ejected For Heckling Tristan Thompson About The Kardashians

A fan was booted out of a recent NBA game after allegedly heckling Tristan Thompson about the Kardashians.

The clash between the Sacramento Kings and Memphis Grizzlies came grinding to a halt in the fourth quarter when NBA officials became aware of a fan who was playing up courtside.

Kings star Thompson looked visibly upset as he exchanged words with said spectator and pointed him out to the referees.


Footage from the game shows referees chatting to stadium security who then wasted no time in ejecting the mouthy fan from his courtside seat.

A chorus of boos rang out around the arena as the supporter was given his marching orders.

Memphis Grizzlies beat writer Drew Hill later revealed exactly what was said during the heated back-and-forth.


He tweeted: "Per multiple people around the fan that was thrown out of the Grizzlies game tonight, he was tossed because he was making comments about the Kardashian family in the direction of Tristan Thompson."

Thompson is currently in a relationship with Khloe Kardashian, the couple have kids together too.

Sacramento Kings head coach Alvin Gentry was far from impressed with the fan's actions.


"They can say anything they want to me or they can boo and do everything they want with the players," Gentry said in his post-game press conference.

"There's no room for saying inappropriate things in a sporting event. That's not why you're there."

Unfortunately, this is just the latest fan incident that the NBA has had to deal with in recent months.


Since the return of live crowds following the pandemic, a number of fans have been ejected for either exchanging words with the players or, in some cases, exchanging blows with fellow spectators.

Most recently, LeBron James got two Indiana Pacers fans booted from the arena after they reportedly aimed nasty digs at the NBA megastar's son Bronny.
