Tristan Thompson Recounts Insane Story When His Mom Breastfed Brother and Drove Bus at Same Time

Thompson, his younger brother Daniel, and his mother were driving to a tournament in the middle of a blizzard. Instead of waiting the weather out, Tristan Thompson’s mom managed to get him there while breastfeeding his brother.
“It was a blizzard, it was terrible,” Tristan Thompson said. “My mom is a school bus driver so she knows how to handle the roads and everything. Daniel was crying, and he wouldn’t stop, so I think he was hungry.”
Tristan Thompson’s mother said she was driving and breastfeeding at the same time.
“I don’t know if this is safe, but I’m the kid so I’m going to keep my mouth shut,” Tristan Thompson said. “Seeing her do that and be just a warrior and a champ and how much she was willing to sacrifice for me to get to that tournament so I could go play and do something that I love. I mean it just shows her love and passion for her kids.”
Tristan Thompson’s mother’s belief in her son paid off because he was selected by the Cavaliers with the fourth overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.
The nine-year veteran was averaging a career-high 12.0 points per game before the regular season was suspended. He was also averaging 10.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
