The Kardashian sisters are used to making the headlines for thousands of reasons. Day in and day out, we always have to know every single one of their moves, even if we don’t care at all, to be honest.
Either because of their antics, scandals or investments, these girls always find the way to make the tabloids, and more often than not, they even manage to sneak all the way up the sports section.
As a matter of fact, they all seem to be quite basketball enthusiasts, or at least, they dig tall men. See, the Kardashians have a long history of dating NBA players, and today, we’re going to give you an updated list of the All-Kardashian team.
PG: Ben Simmons
Young boys just don’t learn from old guys’ mistakes. That’s all we can say about Ben Simmons dating Kendall Jenner, who also happens to be Blake Griffin’s ex-girlfriend, something that may add a lot of fun to the Pistons-Sixers rivalry, considering Embiid has harshly trash talked Andre Drummond.
Even though the Rookie had an outstanding season and took home the ROY, he was horrid in the playoffs and people didn’t hesitate to take it to social media and just blame Kendall Jenner for it.
SG: James Harden
Thank god, James Harden was pretty much immune to the Kardashian Curse, as he was able to survive his 1-year relationship with Khloe Kardashian after meeting her at a Kanye West party in 2015.
The two of them were never involved in scandals and many people even forgot about the fact that they dated, but truth to be told, Harden achieved the best level of his career right after they were through. Coincidence? I think not.
SF: Lamar Odom
The Kardashians really got the worst off Lamar Odom. Yes, he was never really mentally stable, but it wasn’t until his divorce with Khloe Kardashian after 4 years of marriage that he literally lost it.
Odom has been involved in several drug and alcohol-related scandals and even overdosed a couple of times. His basketball career took an early finish, but hopefully, he finds a way to turn things around.
PF: Blake Griffin
Blake Griffin thought he could escape the Kardashian Curse by dating Kendall Jenner, one of their sisters, but boy was he wrong. Not only the injury-riddled power forward was dealt to the lesser Detroit Pistons, but they didn’t even make the playoffs.
Following a lot of drama and controversy, with even Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster trying to hit Kendall up, the couple finally broke up several months ago, so we may see a bounce-back season from the former Clipper.
C: Tristan Thompson
Tristan Thompson actually drew a lot of heat for his relationship throughout the course of the season, after some leaked footage of him making out with a girl in a nightclub while his girl, Khloe Kardashian, was pregnant at home.
Thompson has never been an elite player, but ever since he started dated Khloe, his performances have really gone downhill. He’s not the great offensive rebounder he once was, and is looking more and more like an overpaid scrub.
6th Man: Kris Humphries
Kris Humphries was one of the first poor souls that decided to date one of this girls, going out with Kim Kardashian from 2011 to 2013 and even marrying her for a brief period of time, 72 days; to be more precise.
Humphries was just establishing himself as a productive role player, posting double-digit averages in back to back season before the Kardashian curse got the best of him, up to the point where he was just piling up DNPs.
