LeBron James Blames ‘Kardashian Curse’ for Cavaliers’ Recent Struggles
It’s no secret that LeBron James and the rest of his teammates were not fans of Tristan Thompson and his relationship with perennial athlete killer Khloe Kardashian.
Back in October, reports surfaced that LeBron actually told Thompson to keep Khloe away from the team, but Tristan wasn’t having any of it.
“LeBron James hasn’t been happy that Tristan Thompson is dating drama magnet Khloe Kardashian, and we hear that the teammates had a locker room showdown before the Cavs’ home opener game. Here’s how Tristan defended his girlfriend to LeBron and the rest of the team.
“Tristan isn’t taking any crap from his teammates anymore. As far as he’s concerned, Khloe’s coming to every damn game she chooses,” the insider reveals. “Tristan told LeBron straight up before last night’s game that Khloe was coming and that was that.” Boom!
But wait, there’s more. “Tristan told LeBron that Khloe is his good luck charm, and that if they lost that night, then he’d consider asking her not to come in the future,” the source adds.“
Fast forward to April and the Cavs are in the midst of yet another funk as teams gears up for a playoff run. The Cavs have lost their #1 seeding to the Boston Celtics and are just 5-5 over the last 10 games as they continue to stumble to the playoffs.
According to THG, James has revisited his earlier claims and is blaming the ‘Kardashian Curse’ once again.
“The Cavs haven’t been playing up to their potential lately, and they’re coming up with every reason possible for their bad play,” the source said. “LeBron actually joked and talked about the Kardashian curse being real.”
That source also indicates that Thompson is reportedly being avoided by teammates:
“The Cavs are dodging Tristan now,” the source said. “Everyone is superstitious that Khloe and the curse have something to do with their poor play.”
