The Phoenix Suns lost last night’s NBA Final match against the Milwaukee Bucks, and fans think it’s because of the Kardashians.
It was a tense game, but The Bucks ended up winning 105-98 after Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 50 points and led the Wisconsin-based team to their first title in 50 years.
The loss was devastating for The Suns, but people on Twitter think they know the reason for Devin Booker’s poor performance following his success earlier in the season – the Kardashian curse!
Kendall Jenner has denied the existence of a Kardashian curse and even went as far as to call it “offensive” during the KUWTK reunion episode, but fans aren’t so sure…
What is the Kardashian NBA curse?
For years, a joke has existed amongst fans that there is a ‘Kardashian curse,’ which essentially means that any man who dates one of the Kardashian’s or Jenner’s is cursed for the rest of their life.
The theory dates back to the early 2000s when Kim dated NFL player, Reggie Bush, and suggests that every man who is in a relationship with a Kardashian gets bad luck following the breakup.
Think about Ray J, Lamar Odom and Kris Humphries. All of their lives went pretty downhill after failing to make it work with one of the Kardashian’s, right? Well, that’s supposedly the Kardashian curse.
Fans have also noted that the curse specifically exists with NBA players, as both Khloe and Kendall seem to be incredibly attracted to basketball players.
Khloe has dated Brooklyn Nets player James Harden, L.A. Lakers star Lamar Odom and Boston Celtics player Tristan Thompson, whilst Kendall has been linked with Utah Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson and is currently dating the Phoenix Suns’ Devin Booker.
Fans blame ‘Kardashian curse’ for The Suns’ loss
On Twitter, fans are now blaming The Suns’ loss in last night’s NBA final on the Kardashian curse.
Kendall Jenner’s boyfriend Devin Booker currently plays for The Phoenix Suns, and people are joking that him dating a Kardashian is the reason why they lost the match.
One person tweeted: “Kendall brought the Kardashian curse to The Suns. You can’t tell me otherwise.”
“I’m not superstitious but the Kardashian/Jenner NBA curse is real,” said another.
A third person added: “I guess the Kardashian/Jenner curse is a real thing. Unlucky for DBooker and the Suns.”
The Kardashian’s address the ‘Kardashian curse’
Following the final episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kris, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall all sat down with Andy Cohen to talk about some of the biggest moments from the show.
One topic that came up was the Kardashian curse, and Kendall denied that it was a real thing and said:
“What I don’t like about this narrative is that the blame is on us. I think the men need to take that responsibility,” she said.
“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. So, factually, it doesn’t add up. It’s almost offensive,” she continued.
Kris then outlined some of the impressive athletic achievements men who have dated the Kardashians have earned, and Scott Disick even publicly denied having a Kardashian curse.
However, this certainly hasn’t stopped people from blaming the Kardashian curse for The Phoenix Suns’ loss, and fans are convinced that the curse is real. What do you think?
