"Kanye is not going to like this."

Published October 27, 2017

Appearing on MTV's TRL yesterday, Tristan Thompson revealed that Taylor Swift is his go-to music choice to zone out before games, adding that her hit singles "Shake It Off" and "Bad Blood" are two of his favorites and that the latter track is the perfect play for his Cleveland Cavaliers' rivalry with the Golden State Warriors.

Immediately, Twitter projected how Kanye West might feel about that, considering he, of course, is the husband of Kim Kardashian, who of course is the sister of Khloe Kardashian, who the Cavaliers center is reportedly expecting a baby boy with.

And that was only the beginning of the hilarious roasting session that Thompson walked himself right into for divulging that he's a fan of Taylor Swift.

  1. Here's the 'TRL' video clip of Tristan Thompson fanning out for Taylor

    Oh, you're gonna learn today, Tristan.

  2. Twitter burst out into laughter upon hearing Tristan's go-to music choice before games

    And they were just warming up.

  4. If kanye doesn't pull tristan aside about this, there's a good chance that Kim K. will

    Who knows? It might even be a future moment on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

  5. Meanwhile, Taylor Swift fans are about to start cheering for the Cavs this season

    There's about to be a sudden uptick in sales of Thompson's jersey.

  6. Cavs coach Tyronn Lue's like ...

    "Is that you listening to Taylor Swift, Tristan?"

  7. And cavs fans think Thompson's pre-game music explains his sub-par performance and the team's loss in the Finals

    Thompson did only muster a dismal 5.6 points and 5.8 rebounds per game against the Warriors in the NBA Finals. Maybe bump some Yeezy in the locker room next time around, Tristan.
