Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green have had a number of battles on the court in the NBA Finals the past few years. According to a number of reports, it looks like they may now have had one off the court as well.

Bossip is reporting that after the ESPYS, Thompson punched Green in the face at a club in Los Angeles. The site also reports that LeBron James and Kevin Durant actually helped break up the fight.

The players got into a big fight earlier this month inside LA nightspot Delilah, multiple sources told BOSSIP. Both ballers were in the nightclub for a private party after the ESPY Awards July 18th, and we’re told that Thompson – dad of baby girl True with Khloe Kardashian – socked Green with a two-piece, getting the better of the NBA Champion.

And it was none other than their fellow teammates LeBron James and Kevin Durant then quickly stepped in to break up the fracas, we’re told. James apparently had enough and left the party shortly after the alleged incident.

While Bossip was the first to report it, Jason McIntyre of The Big Lead has been tweeting details of the alleged incident. He says that Green tried to apologize to Thompson for what transpired after Game 4 of this year's Finals.

McIntyre reports that Thompson didn't accept Draymond's apology, and instead punched him. Here's more:

Green, of course, has been involved in a number of incidents both on and off the court since being drafted. It'd be interesting if McIntyre is right here and Green wasn't the instigator.

It's important to note that none of this has been confirmed - by the players, the teams or the authorities. But there had been rumors of a "big NBA fight" for weeks floating on social media.

It'll be interesting to see if the two are cordial when the Cavs and Warriors suit up against each other in a few months.
