The Kardashians have done it again…

On it’s way to destroying another athlete’s career. Who’s career you ask? Well he’s the new to the game but will fit the Kardashians just fine.

Hello Chandler Sponsor…I mean Parsons.

Has anyone ever heard of the Kardashians Family Curse? That’s when ANY of the Kardashians or Jenner women date athletes. It seems that their careers hit the toilet during the relationship.

Watch out Chandler Parsons! The Kardashian family is coming!

Love! Exciting  and new. Come aboard (with your wallet)! We’re expecting you!!!! Oops! I caught a 80’s flashback. Welcome Pippen Peoples to another episode of D.U.M. as MUD backwards! This is  volume three of the Pippen Ain’t Easy series which points out NBA players doing some of the dumbest things.

Volume one of the series went to P.J. Hairston. He was the Hornets rookie player that decided to get  in a fight with a high school kid in a Durham NC YMCA and get charged with assault. Oh did I tell you that it was one day before mini camp? How about playing in a pick up game risking injury before he signed a contract? Oh he couldn’t do that because he had representation from a guy that wasn’t a NBA registered agent. See the theme? D.U.M. as MUD backwards!

Volume two of the series went to Dwight Howard. He somehow got caught up in some shenanigans ALLEGEDLY with an underage girl. I was told by one of the Pippen Peoples that the story was fake. I certainly hope so considering that there were pictures leaked showing them in a hotel room in Florida.

The star of this episode of Pippen Ain’t Easy’s D.U.M. as MUD backwards is a guy that is considered one of the newly NBA rich. He cashed in on a $40 million dollar contract from the Dallas Mavericks. His name is…

Chandler Parsons.

This volume is a little different from the first two columns. I actually like Chandler Parsons. The dude can play some ball. I liken him to a newer version of Bob Sura who played in the NBA back in the early 1990’s. Chandler has that swag that could get him invited to Rucker Park in New York. He has a jumper, the ability to take the ball to the basket and dunk on you if the opportunity presents itself. I mean outside of blowing a defensive assignment with James Harden that allowed Portland Trailblazers’ Damian Lillard to knock down that series clinching three pointer that ended the Houston Rockets season, Parsons had a good career in Houston.

Notice the key word…had.

Well the Dallas Mavericks pulled a free agent surprise of the offseason signing Chandler Parsons to a $40 million dollar tender which the Houston Rockets did not match. So Chandler Parsons goes from a NBA player making $900,000 to being rich. Well we all know what that means, a rich good-looking  athlete making bank…

The Kardashian family will smell your scent out in Calabasas.

Check out a source from perezhilton.com (sorry Pippen Peoples, to do this right, you gotta get sources to make your point.)

“Mama Kris met Chandler a few weeks ago and was blown away by not only his good looks, but his promising B-ball future.”

I pray as I’m writing this that Chandler Parsons is not dumb enough to mess with the Kardashians. Especially the 18-year-old one, Kendall Jenner.

It looks like he’s dumb enough. Parsons reportedly backed out of a reality dating show (more money) because of Kendall tripping over Chandler kissing other women. Maybe Kendall is too young to remember “Flavor of Love”.

This is a statement to Chandler Parsons from Pippen Ain’t Easy…


Don’t you know about the Kardashian curse? Forget the Madden Curse, if you want your career to go down the toilet, get down with this ridiculous bunch.

Think I’m lying? Let’s take a look at some of the athletes that took the fall by trusting that big butt and a smile and taking some of that “Poison”! Let’s start with Kim Kardashian shall we?

We’ll skip the old stuff with the sex tape. We here at Pippen Ain’t Easy do have class. But she has done more damage to players’ careers than old age. Let’s go down the line.

Kris Humphries.

Sorry Kris for bringing up the 72 day E! channel marketing scheme…I mean marriage…again, but we are trying to save a NBA career here. I bet half of you don’t even know if Humphries is  still in the league right now. Well he is. He plays for the Washington Wizards. The problem is he’s on his third team since the scam…I mean marriage ended. The publicity stunt…I mean marriage really affected Humphries. He was considered one of the most hated NBA players the season after he got conned…I mean married. At the time of his divorce, Brooklyn brass let him know that if the divorce proceedings went into the postseason, he would be left off the playoff roster. That Halloween joke (Kim announced the split on Halloween)…I mean marriage dissolved quickly. Then Humphries was dealt to the Boston Celtics in the Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce trade. At least Kris Humphries has a career. We’ll go into more wrecked careers later. Let’s take a look at another NBA player that got caught up in the Kardashian curse. He married the younger sister Khloe Kardashian. His name…

Lamar Odom

Boy this one hurt. I am a Lamar  Odom fan. I mean back in the days when UNLV tried to get him in college. My New York Knicks cut Lamar Odom from the team without even playing a game. I mean Phil Jackson gave  him a lifeline, a clue, bought him a vowel and tried to point him in the right direction. Since Phil Jackson is putting the band back together, Lamar had a real chance for a comeback.

Well Phil Jackson had seen enough! With the quickness according to CBS Sports’ Ken Berger.

Phil Jackson: “Unfortunately, Lamar was unable to uphold the standards to return as a NBA player.”

Also read…Lamar is showing the world that those crack stories might have some merit. Understand that Lamar Odom had his glory years under Phil Jackson. He won two world championships in six years in Los Angeles.

That’s when the problems began. Odom was just coming off the back to back championships when Lamar met Khloe Kardashian at Ron Artest’s birthday party. (Editor’s note: I will never call that dude Metta World Peace. His Mama called him Ron, I’m calling him Ron!) Let me tell you something, I would rather marry a woman who’s been in a brothel for 20 years  before I marry a woman I met at Ron Artest’s  party.

Then it all happened. After Lamar got the E! marriage special, he  got traded from the Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks. Remember, the Mavericks had just won the NBA title so it’s not like he was sent to Minnesota. Well Lamar sure played like it. He was horrible. Just like the reality show, “Khloe and Lamar” he starred in. This will sum up how bad Lamar played in Dallas. He was thrown out of his first game in Dallas. Odom went from the starting line up to the bench to almost the D-league. Then he got slick and got in an argument with Mark Cuban and got sent home. He was so bad, I had to watch the reality show to see why he was playing so poorly.

Now Lamar is a cautionary tale for all NBA  players. Nick Young aka “Swaggy P” was quoted as never wanting a reality show with his girlfriend Iggy Azalea because he didn’t want to end up like Odom. That’s cold huh? Not if you’ve seen this season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Khloe has been dogging that boy out all season long. Knowing good and well she ain’t carrying on no conversations on the phone with him. She has called him out for cheating on her, turning her brother into a crackhead, all while playing the victim.What happened? When Lamar was playing you were all up in the stands. Check out some evidence in the picture!

How about other athletes that have faced the Kardashian curse.

1) Reggie Bush

When was the last time you heard his name? Bet you didn’t know he plays in Detroit. But one thing though, he has played a lot better since he broke up with Kim.

Miles Austin

Kim Kardashian dated him for a hot minute. Since then, hamstring issues has kept the former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver off the field the last couple of seasons. Now the man is in Cleveland. If that ain’t a curse, I don’t know what is.

Rashad McCants

Did you forget about this guy? After being on Keeping Up With The Kardashians as Khloe’s love interest, the NBA did too. How bad is it for McCants now? He has taken to putting the UNC Tarheels on blast in an academic scandal for which Antawn Jamison called him a “clown”. Seeing a possible theme here.

Kanye West

No, he’s not a NBA player. But neither was the Yeezus album. It tanked. Then he got booed all through Toronto in live events. No wonder the Toronto Raptors won’t let Drake go.

Chandler Parsons, this is Ronald Agers, Editor of Pippen Ain’t Easy with a public service announcement.

Take the money and RUN!

Since this report has come out, you are on the bubble to be cut from the USA squad. Coincidence? I’ll let the sports world decide.

Update: Chandler Parsons was cut before the USA squad left to go overseas for the FIBA World Cup.
