Tristan Thompson shared a photo of himself "modeling" in a suit, as he expressed his eagerness to get back to the court. The Canadian basketballer is also rumored to be engaged to his ex and co-parent, Khloe Kardashian.

NBA player, Tristan Thompson, is enjoying his coronavirus-induced holiday. The Canadian posted a cute photo of himself in formal attire on Instagram. He captioned the post:

"I thought I was a model for a second? #IMissBasketball"

Thompson looked dashing in the outfit, as he appeared in a white suit showing off his bare hairy chest. The athlete also displayed two silver chains and a shiny earring as he joked that he was modeling. A fan replied,

"You could always go into modeling as a backup."

Some of Thompson's 3 million Instagram followers definitely share the opinion that a modeling career might not be too much of a stretch for the basketballer as they urged him to consider the option.


However, Thompson's "#IMissBasketball" hashtag didn't go down well with some of his supporters. One fan even joked that despite Thompson's claim, he probably only missed partying.

Khloe Kardashian ignited rumors of an engagement to Tristan, after spending quarantine with him.


Thompson might as well be donning a tux soon as rumors emerged that the Cleveland Cavaliers star is engaged to "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star, Khloe Kardashian.

Kardashian, who turned 36 last weekend, donned a large diamond ring on her "ring finger" at her birthday party. This sent fans into a frenzy of speculation over her relationship status, particularly after Thompson's lovely birthday message on social media. The 29-year-old posted,

"You deserve the world, Koko! True and I love you mama. Happy Birthday @khloekardashian." 


Thompson and Kardashian are exes and co-parents to a 2-year-old daughter, True. The duo spent much of the lockdown together and recently announced that they were back together.

However, despite things currently going very well between the couple, Kardashian is reluctant to make any long-term decisions and is focusing on enjoying the moment.


According to a source, Kardashian is skeptical of the changes that might occur when the NBA season resumes, as Thompson would be back on the road with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Thompson will need to bring his A-game once the league returns, as the Cavaliers strive to reclaim their status as the "team to beat" in the competition — after losing NBA legend, LeBron James, to the LA Lakers on a free transfer in 2018.
