Tristan Thompson is the oldest of four sons born to Andrea and Trevor Thompson; he is the cousin of Jemal Thompson, a former professional American Football player. He was educated at St. Marguerite d’Youville Secondary School, after which he went to Saint Benedict’s Preparatory School in Newark, New Jersey. While there, he began playing basketball for the school team; however, due to his conflict with then-coach Dan Hurley, he transferred to Findlay Prep, where he led the team twice to National Championships at the ESPN National High School Invitational. He was named McDonald’s All-American, as well as a Jordan Brand Classic All-American. Upon matriculation, he received a scholarship to attend the University of Texas at Austin, where he played basketball for the Texas Longhorns for only a season, averaging 13.1 points and 7.8 rebounds per game, winning the Wayman Tisdale Award for USBWA National Freshman of the Year, the Big 12 Freshman of the Year honors, and he was named first-team NABC All-District 8, and USBWA All-District VII honors.
Right after his junior year, Tristan’s professional playing career began, when he was selected in the 2011 NBA Draft as the 4th overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Since that time he has been the part of the team, quickly showing that he was a real deal, making his debut in the same year in the game against the Toronto Raptors. His best game as a rookie was when the team defeated Sacramento, and he scored 15 points and secured 12 rebounds in just 30 minutes of play. Tristan finished his first season with averages of 8.2 points and 6.5 rebounds in 60 games, and thanks to his outstanding performances, he was named to NBA All-Rookie second team honors.
During the 2012-2013 season, Tristan set the team’s record for offensive rebounds in a single season with 306, as well as the record for a team-high 31 double-doubles. He appeared in all 82 games, averaging 11.7 points on .488 shooting average and 9.4 rebounds, which increased his net worth by a large margin.
The next season was almost the same, as he appeared again in 82 games and averaged 11.7 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. The 2014-2015 season Tristan began as one of the best offensive rebounders in the league, with averages of eight rebounds per game. Due to a teammate’s injury, he was transferred to the position of starter and led the team to compete in the 2015 NBA Finals, but they were defeated by the Golden State Warriors. After the season, as his contract had expired, Tristan became a free agent.
At the beginning of the next season, he re-signed a contract with the Cavaliers worth $82 million over five years, which added a considerable amount to his net worth. In January of 2016, he recorded a season-high 19 points and 12 rebounds in the game against the Minnesota Timberwolves; during the season, he led the team to the NBA Finals for the second time, playing again against the Golden State Warriors, and defeating them to win the Championship, with an historic 4-3 margin after being 3-1 down.
Most recently, in December of 2016, the game against the Detroit Pistons was Tristan’s 400th consecutive game for the Cavaliers, the first in the team’s history.
To speak further of his career, Tristan was a member of Canadian team at the FIBA Americas Under-18 Championship in 2008, and in the following year he again represented his country, this time at the 2009 FIBA Under-19 World Championship, and played for the full senior team at the 2013 FIBA Americas Championship, increasing further his potential net worth.
