Tristan’s mother Thompson could often be seen standing right next to him at events for the charitable cause.
Back in October 2016, Tristan talked about his close relationship with his mother – who earned a living as a school bus driver – as he revealed that they talked daily.

He told NBA.com at the time: ‘Even though I don’t live at home and I’m four hours away from home, I talk to my mom every day – ask how the kids are doing, ask how she’s doing, too.
‘Everyone knows that my mom, she’s very dedicated in taking care of her sons – especially Amari. But at the same time, you need to make sure that she’s okay.
‘It’s asking a lot for one parent to do, so I always try to make sure that she’s doing well, too. Whether she’s getting a massage or just get out of the house and have a babysitter watch for a couple hours, that’s crucial.’
Tristan was never shy about showing his admiration for his mother on social media as back in May 2020, he shared a video of his mother with a sweet caption.
He wrote: ‘Happy Mother’s Day Mommy! One day isn’t enough to praise and lift you high. Everyday is your day.
‘Thank you for all the sacrifices you made for me and my brothers. I love you and I’m soo lucky to have been chosen as your son[heart emoji]. Not all superheroes wear capes.’
