Lil B Takes Credit For OKC Thunder Loss: 'And They Said The Curse Was Not Real'
“Respect to everyone who believed,” says Lil B after OKC’s Western Finals loss.
As anyone would imagine Lil B, the craftsman behind the infamous ‘BasedGod Curse,’ had plenty to say after Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Golden State Warriors last night (May 30) in Game 7 of the NBA Western Conference finals. To make matters worse, this all occurs after the former team originally lead the series 3-1 after Game 4. Suffice to say, for Lil B, whose five-year war with OKC’s Kevin Durant remains the stuff of gypsy legend, it was a call for celebration, as the Left Coast rapper took credit for the game loss.
For those lost, or oblivious, in regards to how the “feud” between Lil B and the original candidate of the “BasedGod Curse” came to be, look no further than the abbreviated summary below:
In 2011, Lil B challenged then NBA scoring champ Kevin Durant to a game of 21 and went as far as putting his career on the line. Durant accepted, but the game never happened. Durant would later blast the rapper, leading to B to respond with this:
A cease-fire existed somewhere in 2012, but then once 2014 All-Star Weekend came around, B made the following statement known:
Despite KD telling REVOLT in 2014 that he’s through battling this “curse” with the rapper, Lil B carried on and now we have yet another failed attempt by Durant, and the OKC boys, at the chip.
So is Kevin Durant really cursed?
