Lil B May Have Cursed James Harden In Last Night’s Western Conference Finals Game

Back in 2011, after NBA star Kevin Durant made fun of Lil B on Twitter, Lil B laid “the Based God’s curse” on Durant, saying that Durant would never win an NBA championship. Thus far, it’s held true. Durant has an MVP award but no rings, and his career has been a series of near misses and injury setbacks. Now, the Based God’s curse may have a new target. Lately, James Harden, the best player on the championship contender Houston Rockets and Durant’s former teammate, has adapted Lil B’s Cooking Dance as an on-court celebration, and Lil B isn’t having it. Lil B has warned Harden:

Lil B has also told TMZ, “If Harden doesn’t tell what he is doing, which is the Lil B cooking dance, he will be cursed. He needs to stop stealing Lil B swag without showing love.”

Last night, in the second game of the Western Conference Finals, the Rockets had an incredibly tight game against the Golden State Warriors. Down one, with seconds on the clock, Harden passed up a possible shot, passing it to teammate Dwight Howard, getting it back, and fumbling the ball to two defenders. He never even got a shot off, and the Rockets lost the game by one. And while Lil B hasn’t explicitly taken credit for the loss, he has issued some further warnings.

Lil B is the most powerful man in the NBA.

UPDATE: The Atlanta Hawks cower in Lil B’s wake.

UPDATE 2: As Complex reports, the Cleveland Cavaliers narrowly avoided Lil B’s wrath thanks to some quick thinking from former Mixtape Of The Week honoree Iman Shumpert. When Lil B saw a video of the Cavs celebrating their Eastern Conference championship with the cooking dance, he warned them to give proper credit. Shumpert responded with kind words, and the Based God gave his blessing.
