We know that the twelve minutes, or whatever it was that Kris Humphries was married to Kim Kardashian improved his Q rating. However, did you know it actually improved his on the court production as well? Yes, Kim Kardashian, that Kim Kardashian. Really, it did. Our good friends over at Seat Crunch actually did a study Quantifying Celebrity Influence on Athlete Performance. And the best relationship score of all in the NBA category was the Kim Kardashian Kris Humphries relationship with a 235% jump. I’m serious, they have charts, graphs, formulae, the whole works in this. There’s math and science involved, but unlike math and science, this study is actually fun. Also it should be noted that Kim Kardashian probably doesn’t know what math and science actually are. There’s also multiple lists of who the best and worst celebrity girlfriends are; in terms of helping/hurting athlete performance. The study is pretty in-depth, and I suggest you check it out. Who knew Jenny McCarthy was such a hindrance? Who knew Elisha Cuthbert was such a boost?
