This is definitely one of the highest-profile NBA relationships in recent memory.
These two got together in 2010, right when Humphries started his tenure with the Nets.
His career prior to the relationship was mediocre at best.
On the other hand, NBA players seem to crumble after breakups.
At -13.06, the NBA possesses the lowest average breakup score in the study.
In their first year together, he scored 8 receiving touchdowns, and had 612 receiving yards.
Compare that to the season prior (yes it was his rookie season but STILL) when he only had 106 yards and one touchdown, and you can see the impressive difference.
Overall, the results are negative, but only by -4.6%.
Most of that comes from a handful of negative breakup scores, creating an average of -5.29.
Home runs allowed & earned run average for pitchers.
Baseball players seem to be largely unaffected by relationships.
For example, goals and assists were used for soccer players, while yearly earnings were used for tennis players.
