Lil B Finally Lifts Curse On Kevin Durant After Announcing Warriors Move
Lil B has been known to curse a basketball player or two *cough James Harden cough* but the prolific rapper says he is finally removing the bad juju on Kevin Durant following his Golden State move according to CBS Sports:
For years, there has been one piece of mysticism that has held Kevin Durant back during his tenure with the Oklahoma City Thunder — the Based God’s curse set by Lil B.
The Based God’s curse was put on Durant shortly after he casually dismissed the music of Bay Area rapper Lil B in 2011. The rapper became immediately incensed by Durant’s dismissal and challenged the All-Star forward to a game of one-on-one for ultimate bragging rights. Durant ignored Lil B’s challenge, which made the rapper even more upset so after consulting with the mythical Based God, a curse was put on him and the Thunder.
Yes, the whole thing sounds ridiculous (and frankly, it is) but for whatever reason, the curse seemed to have a legitimate impact on Durant. The Thunder never won a championship with Durant as he kept getting oh-so-close to winning but always coming up just short. This was obviously not because of the Based God’s curse, yet the world works in mysterious ways, so we can’t ultimately discount it. Especially since whenever the Thunder would lose or if Durant suffered a setback, Lil B would pop up to remind everyone about the Based God’s curse.
Along with the Based God curse being lifted, Lil B told CBS Sports that he is not going to challenge Durant to play one-on-one anymore. Instead, Lil B is planning on buying courtside tickets to Golden State games and cheering Durant on while wearing the All-Star’s new Warriors jersey.
The original curse:
Now everything is all good:
Thank you Based God!
