Rapper Lil B put a curse on a basketball star for stealing his dance move
The curse of rapper Lil B claims another NBA victim.
Rapper, expressionist genius, and prankster warrior Lil B has publicly cursed Houston Rockets MVP finalist James Harden via Twitter. This would all be social media-driven nonsense, except that Thursday night Harden ended Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals with what appears to be a 6th Man-esque shoelace trip.
About that “curse”:
People that steal from Lil B will pay now or later all you have to do is pay respect to the original and the leader blind ones will – Lil B
— Lil B THE BASEDGOD (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) May 22, 2015
B is referring to Harden’s penchant for co-opting his signature “cooking” dance move—wherein one hand stirs an imaginary pot. It’s a gesture the Rockets’ marketing people have used to help define Harden as a frenetic chef who cooks up flurries of points. But it’s also not original.
The dance in question has been a popular scoring celebration across sports for several years now. NFL running back LeGarrette Blount was the first pro to incorporate B’s scene into a touchdown celebration in 2011.
In light of that transgression, Lil B the Based God showed no mercy. The postgame highlights made a clear connection between Harden’s collapse and B’s proven ability to curse NBA stars.
Harden’s exit from the visiting sideline was about as frustrated as you’d imagine.
Game 3 is slated for Saturday night in Houston. Barring a wartime truce between B and Harden, expect more of the same.
