James Harden thinks dating Khloé Kardashian is basically career suicide
Khloé Kardashian really appears to be enjoying her time with new flame Tristan Thompson. In fact, they're all about the PDA and have been spending a lot of quality time together — but not everyone's happy for them.
It turns out Kardashian's ex-boyfriend, James Harden, reportedly has an opinion on the new relationship, and he wants Thompson to know that no good will come from being with her — especially not for his career.
"Khloé was a good woman but she was also a curse," a source close to Harden reportedly told Hollywood Life. "She was a huge distraction to James. It was always lights, camera, action with her and being on social media like it was a real 9 to 5. James was so caught up in her world that his game took a back seat and his performance on the court wasn't up to par."
And according to the source, Harden, who is a professional athlete and is signed to the Houston Rockets, allegedly wants fellow NBA star Thompson to know that his career (he currently plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers) will take a nose-dive if he continues dating Kardashian.
"Best of luck to Tristan, though," the source added. "[Tristan's] days of being an NBA champ are over if he continues to date Khloé. James thinks he should have fun with her now but unload her once the season begins." Um, what?!
Of course, we don't know if this is the way Harden really feels, but if the report about him is true, well, then this just sounds like a case of sour grapes. Kardashian is a respected businesswoman in her own right, and she has a lot of things that she has to juggle in order to be in a healthy relationship too. So let's not all pretend that the man in this situation is the one who is sacrificing something for love. How old-fashioned!
In fact, we think any man dating Kardashian is incredibly lucky, as she has proven her loyalty time and time again to those she loves (just take her actions toward estranged husband Lamar Odom, for example).
