Tristan’s mother Andrew: His true inspiration
Tristan was very close to his mother. His mother was his biggest inspiration and he had been seen saying a lot about his mother during interviews. He never stops appreciating how much hard work her parents have done for me and my younger brother, Daniel Thomson.
“It was a blizzard, it was terrible,” Tristan recalled, detailing how she insisted they push through the storm to get to a basketball game. “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.”
“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,” he said. “I mean it just shows her love and passion for her kids.”
Tristan’s mother Andrew
“Trevor is a truck driver. I drive a school bus,” she wrote for the Toronto Star. “We work hard. In life you have to work hard to receive your blessing, everybody knows that.”
Tristan’s mother Andrew once expressed that after Tristan was chosen fourth overall in the 2011 NBA draft, she reflected on how her son made it all the way to the pros with help from mom and dad Trevor Thompson.
Andrew even appreciated her son saying she never even once has to say anything to motivate his son to follow his passion because the environment in which he grew up and what conditions he when through was enough to make him realize the need to work hard in order to better his family’s condition.
