The city of Philadelphia is today coming to terms with the fact that their sporting renaissance may have hit a roadblock.
This anticlimax comes after the Philadelphia Eagles were crowned Super Bowl Champions some months ago and the Philadelphia 76er’s stormed into the NBA playoffs with many pundits talking them up as future NBA Champions.
But The City has been rocked by the news that their young star Ben Simmons is dating Kendall Jenner.
While the news may seem innocuous to many, and little more than tabloid gossip, NBA fans are aware that young Ben Simmons, touted as the next Lebron, could be about to fall prey to the ‘Kardashian Curse.’
The Kardashian Curse has been officially recognised as a hex, that once placed upon men, spells disaster for their short, and potentially long-term career.
The Curse can be invoked by engaging in a relationship with any member of the Kardashian family and has struck down several iconic sports stars. It has been acknowledged as a sure fire way to ‘cool off’ mid-career momentum.
Simmons has reportedly started dating Kendall Jenner, the highest paid model in the world and member of America’s Royal Family, much to the shock of the sporting fraternity.
Both Kendall, her sister and her half-sisters from the Kardashian family have been identified as an recurring index case for the sporting career lulls injuries and personal woes of Lamar Odom, Rashad Mcants, Kris Humphries, Kevin Durant, D’Angelo Russel, Jordan Clarkson and several NFL stars.
More to come.
