What's the proper post-game celebration for a newly acquired benchwarmer from a Los Angeles Lakers team that barely eked out a play-in tournament game victory against a fractured 8-seeded Minnesota Timberwolves bunch? Maybe a nice bowl of soup followed by a good night sleep? Not so for Tristan Thompson, who took the more Kardashian route of going out to a West Hollywood club with Kris Jenner's boyfriend Corey Gamble until around 1 AM this morning.

Thompson, who shares a daughter and son with Khloe Kardashian, went with Gamble to Bird Street Club in West Hollywood, where they undoubtedly delved into the intricacies of how to prepare for the Lakers' upcoming playoff series against the second-seeded Memphis Grizzlies… or they just danced the night away. Either way, they certainly left in style, as according to TMZ, the pair drove off in a chauffeured Maybach.

This marked a slightly classier excursion for Thompson than his recently reported trip to a McDonald's drive-thru with Khloe, which spurred the obligatory questions about their relationship status. Can't a couple of co-parents just enjoy a Big Mac in peace without it meaning anything?!

Hopefully Tristan Thompson, who came out of retirement to re-sign with the Lakers just days ago, was simply trying to keep his legs fresh with his late-night escapade, in hopes of being in peak physical form if and when the Lakers need him to take the court in the playoffs. At least that's what he should tell LeBron if news of the post-game partying comes up at practice (although truth be told, LeBron might be more upset about the McDonald's excursion).
