During game four of the NBA Finals commentator Jeff Van Gundy said Kardashian shaming has to stop.
Van Gundy said this in response to critics who have linked Cavaliers starting center Tristan Thompson’s poor NBA Finals play to him dating Khloé Kardashian. Past players such as the NFL’s Reggie Bush or NBA player Kris Humphries have suffered from poor play while being in a relationship with Kim Kardashian, and Lamar Odom eventually went on a downward spiral and an early exit from the NBA when he was in a relationship with Khloé. This has been called the “Kardashian curse.”
During the live broadcast of the NBA Finals Game Four, Van Gundy says critics suggesting Thompson is going through the “Kardashian curse” owe that family an appology. Twitter responded.
Did Jeff Van Gundy really compare Khloe Kardashian to Ayesha Curry?🤦🏿♂️ That's that man's wife. Completely different from ol girl…
