Lil B has lifted his curse on James Harden

Saturday June 13th, 2015

Bay Area rapper Lil B shared important news on Saturday afternoon, revealing that his curse on Houston Rockets guard James Harden has been lifted ... with a catch.

“This morning I just got word from " The BasedGod " to lift the curse off James harden.. reason being he may be more troubled inside,” Lil B tweeted.

This may or may not be welcome news to Harden, who has claimed to not even know who the rapper is (a claim that appears to have been debunked). 

If you haven't been following the Lil B NBA playoffs saga, Lil B put his hex on Harden after saying the Rockets guard had stolen his "cooking dance" celebration from Lil B's “I Cook” music video.

Lil B, still trying to curse NBA players, sets sights on LeBron James

After Houston went down 3–0 to the Warriors in the Eastern Conference finals, Harden appeared to break free of the curse with 45 points in Game 4. But Lil B then decided to attend Game 5 to curse Harden in person, and Harden wound up setting an NBA playoffs single-game record in committing 13 turnovers.
