The basketball star announced a few weeks ago that he struck a deal to play for Boston Celtics for two years. The deal is $19 million. On Thursday, December 11, Tristan took to Instagram to share an official photo of himself where he was wearing his Celtics’ green jersey with his number, 13.
He captioned the photo “Year 10”. He was immediately congratulated by his girlfriend and mom of his daughter True, Khloe Kardashian, and her family.
The reality TV star commented, “Wooooohoooooooooo” first which was followed by another comment consisting of four leave clover emojis.
Meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian commented with five green heart emojis while their brother, Rob Kardashian, commented “Big 13 LETS GO.”
News regarding his big announcement first broke on November 21. Kim Kardashian congratulated the former Cleveland Cavaliers player by writing, “Congrats @realtristan13. Boston here we come!!!”
So how does Khloe feel about Tristan moving to Boston? A source told E! News, “Khloe is supportive of Tristan and his career. She is very much settled with True in L.A. and doesn’t intend to uproot her and their life.”
The insider also mentioned about the couple’s future, “They don’t know what’s going to happen. They are still figuring things out.”
On November 30, Tristan posted on Instagram to reflect on his recent career change.
He wrote, “Cleveland, what a ride it has been. From the first day of my career that I arrived in Cleveland, as a 19 year old kid from Canada, I have received nothing but love and support from the entire city. Cleveland will forever be embedded in my heart and I will always cherish the countless amount of memories I’ve made over the last 10 seasons. From getting drafted, to 4 straight Finals appearances, to winning the 2016 NBA Championship and bringing a well-deserved ring to the city of Cleveland. I’d like to thank everyone in Cleveland who was a part of my journey including everyone who works at the Q that helped make my family feel at home every game. The grit and toughness that I developed playing for a city like Cleveland will forever be instilled in me.”
He also included a message for his new “home”, “To the city of Boston! To say it’s an honor to wear the green and white is an understatement! I can’t wait to get to work!!!!”
