Former NBAer Says Dating Khloé Kardashian Cost Him $70 Million

There are probably a good amount of people out there who would blame the Kardashians for ruining their lives. Now, we can count former NBA player Rashad McCants among them.

While talking with the Charlotte Observer, McCants pointed to his relationship with Khloé Kardashian as the dominant factor that led to the end of his NBA career after just four-plus seasons (the Lamar Odom fiasco can be used as supporting evidence in your Down With The Kardashians dissertation).

“Without that situation in play, I’m at $60-70 million,” McCants said. “Easily.”

McCants, 32, was first connected to Kardashian, 32, in early 2009 just a few months before she got hitched to Odom.

We have no idea why exactly McCants believes his lackluster career was ruined by Kardashian, but we support him based on pure principle.

McCants was drafted 14th overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2005. After four seasons he was traded to the Sacramento Kings in 2009. After a bit, McCants would sign with the Houston Rockets that September before inking a deal with the Dallas Mavericks a year later. Sadly, he would eventually be released and has since bounced around different international leagues. In 2015, he signed with the Trotamundos de Carabobo of Venezuela in 2015. McCants is part of the BIG3 League that launches next month.

Okay, so maybe McCants’ lack of NBA talent is more to blame for his career sputtering out, but it’s no secret that Kardashian has a thing for NBA ballers.

After filing for divorce from Odom in late 2013, she dated Rockets MVP candidate James Harden in 2015, a down year for him sandwiched in between two stellar seasons. After their relationship came to an end last February, he admitted he wasn’t all that enthralled by the media circus that surrounded them.

“I feel like it was for no reason. I wasn’t getting anything out of it except my name out there and my face out there, and I don’t need that,” Harden told Sports Illustrated in March.

“I wasn’t uncomfortable, but it wasn’t me. I don’t need pictures of myself when I’m driving my car. Who cares? What shoes am I wearing? Who cares? Where am I eating? Who cares? It was unnecessary stuff that I think trickled down to my teammates. I had to eliminate that.”

Kardashian is now rumored to be dating Cleveland Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson, 26.
