For much of the season, the Cleveland Cavaliers were the #1 seed in the playoffs and then March happened and the team went into an absolute funk. Rumors swirled that LeBron and many of the teammates blamed the team’s shortcomings on Tristan Thompson and him dating serial athlete killer Khloe Kardashian.
With the Cavs looking to make a 3rd straight NBA Finals, Cavaliers fans want to make sure they have all their I’s dotted and T’s crossed, so there are no hiccups in the playoffs.
Twitter user @JohnHillbery decided to get proactive about this situation and took to Change.org to create a petition to get Thompson to break up with Khloe and free the team from this Kardashian curse.
“Dear Cavs faithful,
It is almost that time of year again-where we prepare for our long trek back to the NBA Finals. However, this year as the defending champs, we’ve been in sort of a funk.
And it all has to do with the Kardashian Curse.
One of our most beloved athletes, Tristan Thompson, has taken it upon himself to date Khloe Kardashian and by doing so, invited the curse into Cleveland. The curse has been ruthless to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The curse is nothing new however- it has plagued professional athletes such as James Harden, Lamar Odom, Kris Humphries, and now our beloved TT.
This Cavs season has been a strange one. After the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead last year in the NBA Finals, everything felt right in Cleveland. The 52 year drought was over, and our team was on cloud nine. However, as this season has progressed, the defending champs have been struggling. Kevin Love and JR Smith were injured and out for a period of time earlier this season. Andrew Bogut broke his leg and his Cavaliers career lasted just 58 seconds, and now Kyrie Irving is currently battling pain in his surgically repaired left knee.
This is no coincidence. This is the Kardashian Curse in play. And it needs to end now.
What I am proposing in this petition, is to get Tristan Kardashian…err, I mean Thompson, to break up with Khloe once and for all, and to rid the team of the bad juju the Kardashians have brought to Cleveland.
You guys want to win the title again this year, right? Then do the right thing. Sign this petition and lets #EndTheFling4TheRing”
