The Kardashian family is as famous as controversial, and the world of sports is well aware of that. The sisters have been in relationships with professional athletes, especially NBA players, earning a reputation of jinxes for how bad some of these men perform after dating them.
Well, that notion is ridiculous for the family. They don't think that's actually true and have arguments to back it up. During a recent interview, the KarJenners were asked about this 'curse .' Their answer was pretty clear. Kendall Jenner (who is currently dating Devin Booker) quickly dismissed that idea, saying that the men need to take responsibility for that.
“What I don’t like about this narrative is that the blame is on us,” Jenner told Andy Cohen. “I think the men need to take that responsibility.
“I think that we’re all extremely giving and caring and loving women. And, when there is a man in our lives we like, give everything to them and as a family, we all love them so much.
“It’s almost offensive, personally.”
They have dated very big names in sports, including Reggie Bush, Kris Humphries, Lamar Odom, Tristan Thompson, Blake Griffin, James Harden, Ben Simmons, and more.
The Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner, defended her daughters, pointing out that there's a Super Bowl champion (Bush) and two NBA champions (Lamar Odom and Tristan Thompson) among her former sons-in-law.
If you want more proof, Devin Booker is balling this postseason, dominating rivals every game. Right now he's two wins away from playing the NBA Finals in his first playoffs. If that's not succeeding, I don't what is. Sure, players like Griffin, Odom, and even TT haven't been their best version for a couple of years now, but that's more their fault than anything.
James Harden is still a great player; Ben Simmons can still save his career if he takes things seriously. Griffin showed a different face with the Brooklyn Nets this offseason. If there's one curse, you can still come back from it. Still, it seems like fans created this whole story to try to hide the fact that some players started slowing down.
