Rashad McCants has had a rough go of things as a professional basketball player after first being dropped by the NBA before moving from one semi-pro team, and one country, to the next.

The North Carolina native recently opened up to the Charlotte Observer about his journey, making it clear that he blames one factor above all else.

According to McCants, his relationship with Khloe Kardashian doomed his career as a professional ball player. He believes it led to people doubting his commitment to the NBA.

"Without that situation in play, I'm a $60-$70 million player. Easily, "said McCants.

The 32-year-old will continue his basketball career this summer in the BIG3, a new three-on-three league featuring former NBA players. The 10-city tour will stop in his home state of North Carolina on July 2.
