Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's relationship evolved a lot over the past few months. The two keep things pretty quiet, but the reality star made things really official the way only a Kardashian can; by introducing him to the family on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The two seem to only be growing more serious, and Kardashian makes sure to support Thompson's athletic career. The reality star went to a lot of her boyfriend's NBA games this season, and Kardashian will likely be in the crowd for some of the NBA Finals.

In the past, Kardashian has made sure to support Thompson and the Cleveland Cavaliers from the sidelines. Their relationship is long distance, with the star living in LA and Thompson in Cleveland, where his team practices and plays, but she'll often fly to Ohio to cheer him on. According to Us Weekly, the KUWTK star attended many of his games throughout this season and the two spent time together almost every week. Every good relationship is based on support, and it's clear that Kardashian is putting in the time to root for Thompson and his future in the NBA. The Cavaliers had a strong showing in the playoffs, and Kardashian could be spotted court-side in a regular seat at some of the games.

Kardashian doesn't appear to have attended the first two games of the Finals, which took place in Oakland, but there's a good chance she'll attend when the Cavs are the home team starting on Wednesday night.

As another show of support, the star shared baked a surprise for the Cavs in anticipation of their Finals run. In a Snapchat story, she showed off a plate of cookies in the shape of jerseys, with individual player names and numbers. The top cookie is, of course, the name and digits for her favorite team member.

Other than the occasional social media post (she is a Kardashian, after all), details about their romance are kept fairly secret. In April, she did open up about her feelings in an issue of ES Magazine. According to People, she told the publication that she's definitely open to the potential of getting married or starting a family with her current man. "I would love to have a family. We’ve talked about it,” she said. “He [already] is a father, and I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father.”

More details about Kardashian's relationship might be revealed on the season finale of KUWTK. The teaser trailer shows the two looking super happy. “I am really excited about my future,” Kardashian says in the short preview. “It’s all about the unknown in this family right now, guys.”

It's not clear what Thompson and Kardashian's future might hold, but for now, this couple is enjoying his moment in the spotlight. There are still at least two more games to go, and it's going to be an uphill battle for the Cavs. If the Warriors win the next two games, they are champions and the finals will end in Cleveland. And given her past attendance record, there's a good chance Kardashian will be cheering in the stands for the next couple of games.

Any solid relationship is based on support, and when it comes to career moments, these two have each other's back. It's a big week for Thompson, and it seems like Kardashian intends to cheer him on the whole way. This will hopefully be a win for their NBA team, and the future of their relationship.
