Tristan Thompson, who left the arena on Thursday wearing a white sweatshirt with Supreme's red logo across the chest, was not surprisingly a fan of JR Smith's Supreme arm sleeve he wore against the Lakers. "It was lit," Thompson told ESPN. Smith did not share his fashion choice with his teammates pregame, whipping off his sweatshirt right before taking the court to reveal the accessory. "He surprised us, that made it even better," Thompson. "If he's going to wear it, he might as well make a scene." He also thought that Smith's execution was better than Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre's Supreme leg sleeve that Oubre recently wore. "I wouldn't do it, but shoot, if they want to wear it and start something, start a trend, why not be the first two to do it? But it's way bigger doing it on TNT than doing it on a local broadcast. So, I'm rolling with my guy Swish." Thompson then shared what he likes about the Supreme brand, which sold a 50 percent stake in its company to the Carlyle Group for a reported $500 million in October. "It's a street-wear brand, very exclusive," Thompson said. "It's always been very popular but now it's just getting where more and more people know what it's about."
