James Harden's NBA season has ended but his troubles with rapper/curse specialist Lil B the Based God are just beginning.

Harden finally spoke out on his supposed dance stealing and the ensuing curse recently, telling TMZ that he could not have stolen his signature celebration from the Based God because he has never heard of him.

This seems like a fair defense, except Lil B's fellow Northern California rapper Kreayshawn did some deep digging through Twitter and found a Harden manual retweet of a friend that mentions Lil B.

As you would imagine, Lil B is unhappy with this turn of events, and is considering hitting Harden with a full-blown Based God curse.

In Harden's defense, the tweet is not really a smoking gun, as it simply says the author is going to see Harden while listening to Lil B, so the Rockets star still has some plausible deniability. Still, his best bet at this point may just be to ask for mercy.
