If any of Kim Kardashian West’s 192 million Instagram followers were previously unaware that Tristan Thompson was joining the Celtics, there’s a much better chance they’ve heard the news now.

Kardashian West congratulated Thompson after the former Cleveland Cavaliers center reportedly agreed to a two-year, $19 million deal with the Celtics on Saturday.

“Congrats @realtristan13,” Kardashian West wrote. “Boston here we come!!!!” She added some emojis for good measure as well.

Kim Kardashian will be watching Tristan Thompson play in Boston.

While it’s unclear how often Kardashian West will be in Boston – particularly if NBA games don’t have fans this season – it is clear that watching Thompson play in person is at least on her radar.


Thompson has appeared regularly on the hit reality TV show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” He has a child with Kardashian West’s sister, Khloe.

Tristan Thompson added Kim Kardashian’s Instagram story to his own story.

Thompson shared Kardashian West’s message to his story, writing “Yessirskii” and adding two shamrocks. Perhaps Kardashian’s four-leaf clovers were for good luck, while Thompson’s shamrocks were unmistakably commemorating the news.

He also shared their brother Rob Kardashian’s message to his story.

Rob Kardashian also congratulated Tristan Thompson.

The Kardashians’ arrival in Boston could add a unique wrinkle to this upcoming Celtics season.
