Tristan Thompson bounced offstage following a panel discussion about The Carter Effect — the Uninterrupted-produced documentary about how Vince Carter helped instill a love for hoops in Thompson and a whole generation of Canadian basketball players — and spoke about his love for the moves the Cleveland Cavaliers made to change their season.
We’ve got a lot more energy, a lot more youth, Thompson told ESPN during All-Star Weekend at the NeueHouse Hollywood in Los Angeles, where Uninterrupted shares its office space. So I’m excited to get back to practice and really just mesh with the guys even more.
One of the more notable invitees is UCF’s Shaquem Griffin, who lost his left hand when he was a child. He’ll join four of his teammates in Indianapolis.
The combine will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind. You can check out the entire list of attendees below.

Alabama is fresh off yet another championship and leads all schools this year, with invitations extended to 14 players. Keep an eye on defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick and wide receiver Calvin Ridley, who are both slated as top 10 picks in Dan Kadar’s latest mock on Mocking the Draft.
There is plenty of reason to be optimistic about the overhaul, even though only 26 games remain for the Cavs to get into playoff form. The Cavs, as Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue noted at the first post-break practice, are basically starting from scratch.
Just like how I suspected, they forgot the plays, Lue said after Wednesday’s practice session when Joonas Donskoi Womens Jersey asked what his new players retained over the weeklong break that put their 2-0 start together on pause.
Beyond practice, Thompson is prioritizing the hang — putting in the effort to establish bonds beyond the locker room.
