Fans of 76ers player, Ben Simmons, are begging him to dump Kendall Jenner after the team’s recent playoff loss. It appears some of those who admire Simmons basketball skills are worried the Kardashian curse has struck him too.
The Philadelphia 76ers got knocked out of the NBA playoffs yesterday. It was a gut-wrenching loss for fans, who saw the team lose to the Toronto Raptors by two points. Now furious fans are placing the blame on the infamous Kardashian curse and Simmons relationship with Jenner. Even though she was not at the game or any of the playoff games for that matter, the model is taking the brunt of fans hostility.
Twitter is full of fans with messages to Simmons regarding what he needs to do during the offseason to help keep his basketball career alive.

“So, no one is gonna point out that Ben Simmons started playing like shit once Kendall Jenner started showing up to games? #thecurse” Tweeted @buccy
“Ben Simmons can’t shoot because he’s dating Kendall Jenner,” wrote @sheaschrader
“My list of things for Ben Simmons to do: 1. Break up with Kendall Jenner 2. Swear to never date one of them again 3. Train with T-Mac” stated @sideniggajojo
“LEAVE BEN SIMMONS @KendallJenner,” Tweeted @RayontheCrayon
Oh yes, 76er fans are not happy with Ben Simmons and his relationship with Kendall Jenner. The backlash comes a week after the supermodel was spotted cozying up to her ex, Harry Styles, at the Met Gala.
Fans can’t help but wonder if Jenner hanging out with Styles had an impact on the professional basketball player when he needed to be 100% focused on the game. Several media outlets reported Simmons was confused by Jenner spending time with her former love, but he has not said a word on the subject.

Simmons and Jenner have not been seen together for a few weeks, so the status of their relationship is up in the air. It took them months to even confirm they had a budding romance. Therefore, if they are over, they would likely not announce it to the public.
She may not have the Kardashian last name, but that has not stopped 76er fans from blaming Kendall Jenner, and the Kardashian curse after Ben Simmons and his team were booted from the NBA playoffs.
What are your thoughts on the curse? Are fans overreacting?
