No, Lil B's shtick isn't getting old at all. 

The Bay Area rapper also known as The Based God claims to have the power to curse NBA players. He put the curse on Kevin Durant and then released a diss song called "F--- KD," which Lil B says is the reason for Durant's injury-plagued 2015–16 season. He also put a hex on James Harden before the Rockets were bounced from the playoffs by the Warriors. 

Now he's taking responsibility for the Cavaliers' loss to Golden State in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, saying LeBron James and J.R. Smith are the latest victims of the curse.

Lil B may have caught James Harden in a lie
