Russell Westbrook tempts fate, says he doesn’t know Lil B

Thursday October 22nd, 2015

Russell Westbrook is treading in dangerous water in his latest interview, as the Thunder guard says he has never heard of rapper/Kevin Durant hater Lil B.

B famously put a curse on Durant that he claims will prevent the star from ever winning an NBA title, and last season briefly added former Thunder teammate James Harden to the list of the accursed after he began celebrating with a move similar to Lil B’s cooking dance.

In a recent interview with Complex, Westbrook denied all knowledge of the Based God, which is a quick way to a hex.

How do you feel about Lil B’s fashion choices?

Lil B.
Who is that?

You don’t know the Based God?
Nah. I don’t know who that is.

You’ve never heard of him?

You don’t watch ESPN?
Nope. I don’t. 

Lil B has yet to respond on his prolific Twitter page, but it is unlikely he will let this transgression pass.
