‘Curse of Kim Kardashian’ blamed for LA Lakers loss as NBA fans explain theory after shock loss
KIM KARDASHIAN has been blamed by fans for the Los Angeles Lakers’ Game 3 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night.
The Lakers are now 3-0 down against the Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals after losing 119-109 on their home court at Crypto.com Arena.
However, it emerged that Kim, 42, was not present at the game – although her daughter North West was seated on the sidelines.
Kim played in the Lakers’ last two playoff games last week and both won at home to the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference semifinals.
So NBA fans believe that LeBron James and the Lakers surprisingly lost Game 3 due to Kim’s absence.
One fan believes D’Angelo Russell’s poor performance (three points in 20 minutes) was due to the Kardashian star’s no-show for the game.
“Bring Kim Kardashian back to the crypt. I’m convinced she came to see Dlo because since she left the man is an idiot,” the Twitter user wrote.
Another said: “Kim Kardashian didn’t come, so the Lakers lost.” [laughing emojis.”
A third wrote: “Kardashian curse is real #Lakers.”
And a fourth added: “Kim Kardashian wasn’t there… Lakers need her for game 4.”
While a fifth Twitter user commented: “Reason why the Lakers are losing is because of the Kardashian Curse.”
Kim has also recently gotten blamed for Arsenal F.C.’s losing a comfortable lead in the Premier League standings.
The reality TV star and her son, Arsenal fan Saint, made the trip to watch the Gunners lose to Sporting CP on March 16.
Arsenal has since picked up 15 points from a possible 30.
Manchester City were confirmed Premier League champions on Saturday after Arsenal’s 1-0 loss away against Nottingham Forest.
