Philadelphia 76ers Co-Owner Says Supermodel Kendall Jenner Is A 'Great Influence' On Ben Simmons

A die-hard Philadelphia 76ers fan recently created a petition to try and stop Kendall Jenner from attending Sixers matches. The fan made the petition on Change.Org that blamed Jenner for a recent loss and asked to have her banned from the Sixers home stadium, Wells Fargo Centre.

The owner of the 76ers Michael Rubin has just given his thoughts on the supposed curse of Kendall Jenner in a recent interview with Business Insider.

“I think it’s ridiculous,” Rubin said. “I think Kendall’s awesome. I’ve spent a bunch of time with her.” He added, “I was with Kendall a few days ago and Kendall insisted on going home and getting a good night’s sleep when Ben wanted to stay out for a late dinner. So, Kendall’s been a great influence on him, and we’ve won every game she’s been at but one so far.”

Young star Ben Simmons has been very tight with Kendall Jenner but it’s been reported that the two were not officially together, instead they have just been ‘hooking up’. Although they may not be exclusive, the two have certainly spent a lot of time together with Kendall regularly coming to see Ben in Philadelphia while she isn’t working.

It’s fair to say that the curse may be just a myth with Philadelphia having an impressive start to the season sitting fourth in the Eastern Conference with 20 wins this season so far. Simmons form hasn’t dropped off at all after winning the Rookie of the Year award last season showing that Kendall may be a better influence that many people think.

If the Sixers can continue this form into 2019 then who knows how far the franchise could go when the postseason begins.
