The infamous “Kardashian curse” has been attributed to many players over the past few years, including James Harden, Ben Simmons, Kris Humphries, and Tristan Thompson.
Folks claim that the pressures and spotlight of being with a Kardashian are often distracting for NBA stars, and it can impact their careers in a negative way.
In the case of Devin Booker, rumors about him and his potential relationship with Kendall Jenner for months. While the truth of their relationship remains behind closed doors, he was curiously spotted in attendance at a Kardashian family party on October 27, adding to the idea he and Kendall might have something going on.
After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time. pic.twitter.com/cIFP7Nv5bV

A video was also posted later by Jenner of a guy who looks like Booker riding a bike through the island.
With their relationship linked as far back as August, the so-called “Kardashian curse” has not yet taken hold of the Phoenix Suns star. In fact, it was in August that he led his Suns team to an 8-0 finish in the Orlando playoffs as he averaged 30.5 points, 6 assists, and 4.9 rebounds in 33.0 minutes per game.
It will be interesting to see if he can continue that level of play for the 2020-21 season.
