The Cleveland Cavaliers lost three games in a row last week.
All were to teams that would qualify for the playoffs if the season ended today (the Bucks, Clippers and Bulls), while the Cavs still sit at 14-5, the best record in the Eastern Conference.
But this wasn’t satisfactory for at least one Cleveland fan.
He took to Twitter shortly after the mini losing streak and pointed his finger of blame at the real source of the team’s misery.
Lackluster three-point shooting?
No, Khloe Kardashian.
The reality star, of course, is dating Tristan Thompson.
The two got together this summer and have since gone very public with their relationship, kissing on the dance floor (see photos below) of a Halloween party and celebrating last year’s Cavs’ title together in Cleveland.
They seem very happy together.
But Kardashian dated Houston Rockets guard James Harden prior to last season… and Houston went on to suffer through a very disappointing campaign.
She was previously married to Lamar Odom… and his life has taken a dangerous, almost deadly downward spiral over the past couple years.
So many Cavs fans were understandably concerned that Thompson – a vital running mate for LeBron James and company – would fall victim to the dreaded Kardashian Kurse, derailing the team’s hopes for a second consecutive championship.
Hence the frustration of one Twitter user during the aforementioned winning dry spell last week.
He tried to blame Khloe for the squad’s poor play, only to be handed his rear end big time by the awesome celebrity.
“They are #1 in their conference,” Khloe wrote in response to this diss, adding:
“But thanks 4 sucking my dick hard enough 2 think I have that much power. Lick on my balls while you’re at it.”
HA! You tell ’em, Keeks!
It’s worth noting, by the way, that Thompson is averaging fewer points per game this season than his career average, it’s true.
But his rebounds are up and his blocks are up; and he’s paid to hustle, defend and clean the boards.
No one could accuse Thompson of having a down year, even if he is going down on Khloe Kardashian more often this season than he did last season.
Previous rumors claimed that LeBron had ordered Thompson to stop dating Khloe.
We doubt that was ever the case, but that would be a suggestion (considering the source) that Thompson would perhaps follow.
Some random Twitter user, though? Please.
If you come at this Instagram Queen, dude, you better not miss.
And she just shot you down so badly that you deleted your original Tweet.
Unlike Thompson’s season to date, that’s just weak.
