The Kardashians might just be the most hated family in all of America. They represent everything that’s wrong with the country: excess, vanity, greed, vapidity, and being famous for doing nothing (or, in Kim’s case, being famous for doing someone). For these reasons, people love to hate them. Mocking the Kardashians has become a sort of American institution and everyone likes to get in on the fun, including major celebrities like Jon Hamm, Joan Rivers, Reese Witherspoon, Daniel Craig, Joel McHale, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jonah Hill, Jeremy Renner, and so many others (but you can read about that here).
Many athletes have been known to bash the Kardashian clan, as well. And it’s no surprise, since Kim and her large-bottomed sisters seem to have dated half the athletes in all of professional sports (you could fill a lineup in just about any league with former Kardashian flings).
But dating a Kardashian apparently isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. In fact, some believe that it can actually be a curse on an athlete, one that’s worse even than the Madden curse, since many of the men who have dated a member of the Kardashian family have wound up having bad seasons or bad careers (some say Khloe even managed to sabotage an entire team’s season). And Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett recently joked on NFL GameDay that the only thing that could tarnish Peyton Manning’s legacy would be if he were to date a Kardashian.
With all this negativity toward the Kardashians, it’s no wonder that these 15 athletes expressed their hate for America’s royal family.
15 15. Jordan Spieth
14 14. Scottie Pippen
13 13. Danica Patrick
12 12. The Entire Houston Rockets Organization
11 11. The Entire New Jersey Nets Organization From 2010 To 2011
10 10. Lamar Odom

7 7. Miles Austin
6 6. Rashad McCants
5 5. Lolo Jones
4 4. Jeremy Lin
3 3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
2 2. Ronda Rousey
1 1. Kris Humphries
This one should go without saying. After all, Kris Humphries, current member of the Washington Wizards, was married (if you can even call it that) to Kim Kardashian for a little over two months. Humphries has suggested that his marriage with Kardashian was nothing more than a fraud and a publicity stunt aimed at gaining viewers, and, because of this, he filed for an annulment rather than a divorce. Since parting ways with Kardashian in 2011, Humphries has tried to put the whole thing behind him, but it’s unlikely that he will ever be able to step outside the shadow of his time on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. He will likely go down in history as “that guy who married Kim Kardashian.” Averaging less than 7 points per game won’t help either.
