5 Reasons Every Athlete Should Date a Kardashian
There are countless unexplained phenomenons in professional sports. Bill Buckner allowing a ground ball to go through his legs, Babe Ruth calling his home run, Patrick Ewing missing a game-winning layup and Billy Cundiff's missed chip shot are just to name a few.
The most phenomenal of the phenomena however, belongs to a sisterhood of women who have forever changed professional sports. Those women, of course, are the Kardashians.
Each athlete these women have dated has seen a drastic improvement in their level of play. Some have won awards while others have won championships. Some have just become better.
If the rest of the sports world wants to join these men in glory, there is only one thing for them to do: date a Kardashian.

Kris Humphries may be the most hated man in professional basketball, but he's also having the best season of his career. Why? You know why.
As last night's victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, the Nets' big man is posting averages of 13.1 points, 10.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game. That's a pretty nice improvement from the 6.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 0.6 blocks he had previously averaged over the span of his career.

While Austin has yet to win a championship like some of the other names on this list, his rise can be attributed to the "Kardashian Effect."
Maybe he can reunite with Kim and win a title in 2013...

Lamar Odom married Khloe Kardashian in 2009, the same year the Lakers began their reign of back-to-back Championships. I
n 2011, Odom was named Sixth Man of the Year.
While Odom's time in Dallas has been worse, his team is currently on pace to reach the playoffs. Should the Mavericks achieve the feat, Khloe and Lamar will be hard-pressed to find a complaint with a title in sight.
