LeBron James has played in the past six NBA Finals, leading his teams to three championships during that run, so he knows a little thing or three about how to keep a tight-knight group and avoid outside distractions.
With James' Cleveland Cavaliers on the top of the basketball world following their championship ring ceremony the other night—and looking to repeat this season—LeBron doesn't want anything, or, in this case, anyone getting in the way of their title defense.
That's why James, allegedly, told his teammate Tristan Thompson—who's dating Khloe Kardashian—to keep her and her famous family away from the Cavs, fearing that the somewhat famous Kardashian-Jenner sports curse could have a negative effect on Cleveland's season, per HollywoodLife:
The star athletes had a little spat before the Oct. 25 game. Tristan isn’t taking any crap from his teammates anymore. As far as he’s concerned, Khloe’s coming to every damn game she chooses,” the insider reveals. “Tristan told LeBron straight up before last night’s game that Khloe was coming and that was that.” Boom!
But wait, there’s more. “Tristan told LeBron that Khloe is his good luck charm, and that if they lost last night, then he’d consider asking her not to come in the future."
Considering James and Thompson are so tight, it's a little shocking the big man actually stood up to the King—who calls Tristan his "little brother." But between love and basketball, well, Thompson seems to have chosen love.
If LeBron James is looking for any backup to keep Khloe and her family away, he might just want to bring in James Harden—because she really screwed up his game last season.
