Even though he always like to act tough, it looks like deep inside, Ben Simmons isn't as reckless as he wants us all to think, judging by the way he's failed to live up to expectations in this playoffs series against the Toronto Raptors.
Thing is, according to BSO, the Sixers' point guard is truly hurt because of the fact that Kendall Jenner isn't taking their relationship seriously and has repeatedly cheated on him.
Jenner was reportedly caught cheating with a couple of her ex-boyfriends: Blake Griffin and Jordan Clarkson, as well as the rapper French Montana, who also happens to be Khloe Kardashian's ex-boyfriend. The supermodel had allegedly apologized to the Australian, but she got tangled up in several cheating scandals once again, and it's starting to take a huge toll on Ben's performances.
Simmons' struggles on the court have really hurt the Sixers' chances as they face one of the toughest teams in the NBA, and while you have to give the Raptors' defense a lot of credit, it's pretty obvious that he's just not entirely focused on what's happening on the court.
If the Sixers want to have a chance to force a Game 7 and make it to the Eastern Conference Finals, they're going to need all of their stars to be at their best, especially with Joel Embiid's health issues. Simmons is currently averaging just 9.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game after lighting up the Brooklyn Nets for 17.2 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 7.6 assists per game.
Once again, the Kardashian sisters have been a major distraction for NBA players, as it happened before to the aforementioned Griffin and Clarkson, as well as Tristan Thompson, Khris Humphries, and Lamar Odom.
Hopefully, Simmons will be able to shake off the infamous 'Kardashian Curse' and prove once again why he's one of the most promising players in the world when the Sixers take on the Raptors at home tonight.
