In case anybody was wondering, Sixers star Ben Simmons is still dating Kendall Jenner.
Remember when the city of Philadelphia swore that the Sixers got hit with the ‘Kardashian Curse’? That was an interesting time. For those of you who are out of the loop, there’s an epidemic amongst professional athletes when it comes to dating women who are in relation to the Kardashian/Jenner family. Typically, players who get emotionally involved tend to see a decrease in production on the court/field.
Well, that specific ‘curse’ was something that had many Sixers fans worried when they found out that 76ers superstar Ben Simmons was getting close with Kendall Jenner. We all know Simmons as a calm and quiet guy, but he does seem to have taken an interest into that superstar, Los Angeles lifestyle during the course of the offseason.
Simmons was rumored to be dating Jenner during the 2018 NBA offseason, but it didn’t really last long. However, early on in the year, Jenner started popping back up. And the next thing you know, she’s one of the most famous public figures to regularly sit courtside at the Wells Fargo Center. Many accused Jenner of being a reason why the Sixers lost a few games, but in all reality, her attendance record actually turns out to be pretty good.
