Has Devin Booker Been Caught By The Kardashian Curse?

About two weeks ago, a video of Devin Booker went viral in which he played some arcade hoops against Kylie Jenner.




In the two weeks after the video was first published, Booker has only averaged 18.8 points on pretty bad shooting splits. The All-Star shot 39% from the field, 21% from three and 87% from the line (stats h/t to reddit/r/nba). 

To many, this raises the question if Booker is just in a normal shooting slump or if he’s the next athlete to get caught by the Kardashian Curse.

The ‘Kardashian curse’, is a ‘hex’ on any man willing to get romantic with any of the sisters. It may sound stupid, but the curse could be a thing:

Lamar Odom: On October 13, 2015, while being married to Khloe Kardashian, Odom was hospitalized and placed into an induced coma for more than two weeks after he was found unconscious, due to alcohol and drug abuse, at a legal brothel in Nevada. Odom also suffered kidney failure and 12 strokes and two heart-attacks during the incident.

James Harden: After his relationship with Khloe, Harden told Sports Illustrated that it was the ‘worst’ year of his life. “I feel like it was for no reason. I wasn’t getting anything out of it except my name out there and my face out there, and I don’t need that. It wasn’t uncomfortable, but it wasn’t me.” He also struggled heavily at the start of the season.

Jordan Crawford: He was linked to Kendall, just when his rise to possible NBA staredom took has massive hit. He hasn’t recovered ever since.

Odell Beckham:  Has had a rough start to 2016, after being linked to Khloe.

Tristan Thompson: Has been performing poorly ever since getting married to Khloe Kardashian.

Rashad McCants: He dated Khloe for about six months in 2008 and officially broke up, shortly before McCants was traded to the Kings, which also marked the end of his NBA career.

Matt Kemp: Two years after he was the MVP runner-up, him and Khloe dated; he’s never been the same ever since.

Kris Humphries: He was married to Kim for 72 days in 2001 and his promising NBA career turned into mediocrity.

Kanye West: Don’t think I need to go into detail there…

Then there also were Scott Disick, Reggie Bush and Miles Austin.
