Jalen Rose thinks the Kardashian Curse is real.
Rose appeared on ESPN’s “First Take” on Wednesday ahead of Game 3 and attributed the Cavaliers trailing 3-0 behind the Golden State Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals to the “Kardashian Curse.”
Cavaliers’ center Tristan Thompson, who is publicly dating Khole Kardashian, played for 23 minutes, shot 0-of-1 from the field and finished Wednesday’s game with three rebounds and two assists.

The stat line wasn’t Thompson’s only embarrassing part of the night.
In the first quarter of the Cavaliers’ 118-113 loss to the Warriors, Thompson ran into LeBron James, knocking him over. James was shaken up on the play and laid on the court for a few minutes, but returned to the game to score a team-high of 39 points.

Charles Barkley even expressed disappointment at Thompson’s Game 3 performance saying that at 54 years old, he could play better in a Finals game.
So is the Kardashian curse real or are the Warriors really that good?
