A source close to the situation claims Tristan Thompson "is completely emotionally and physically exhausted from the cheating allegations and of course the playoffs." The very distraction of his cheating allegations kept him sidelined in the first and second round of the playoffs. Team officials kept him at a distance from the rest of the Cavs until he was needed against better rebounding teams.

The source told US Weekly that Tristan Thompson is dealing with the real world repercussions of the fallout. Tristan is trying to juggle work-life= balance that accounts his team's goal of taking home the Larry O'Brien trophy in the NBA finals Of course the situation is made all the more difficult since his contractual obligations are just as binding as his requirements at home (if not more).

Apparently Tristan and Khloe are constantly at odds at home, the tension stemming from unresolved issues they simply haven't been able to address before season's end. If they can last another week or so, maybe the tide will turn in their favor. Professional athletes often have to compensate for a lack of care giving they provide for their nascent families. Something tells this is something Khloe accounted for when she lunged into a serious relationship with the Brampton native. Game 1 of the Cavs-Warriors NBA Final begins tonight at 9 P.M.
