Lil B offers to lift curse on James Harden after Rockets’ elimination

Lil B took to Twitter after the Houston Rockets were eliminated from the postseason Thursday night to extend an olive branch to James Harden.

The rapper has long had issues with Rockets superstar (more on that later), but suggested perhaps it’s time to end the mostly one-sided feud in the wake of the Rockets’ embarrassing 114-75 blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

In fact, “The Based God” appeared to actually feel bad about how horribly the Rockets were dismantled in the elimination game.

Lil B’s beef with Harden goes all the way back to 2015. The rapper took issue with how Harden supposedly stole his “cooking dance” celebration during the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors.

The curse took another turn for the worse, as it were, when Harden posted a photo of himself doing the “cooking dance” on Instagram ahead of the 2015-16 NBA season.

The apparent co-opting of the purportedly patented move led Lil B to continue his curse on Harden.

Fast forward to Thursday night. Harden had an abysmal game in the brutal loss, scoring only 10 points on 2-of-11 shooting, to go along with six turnovers and six fouls. Harden, though, did accept responsibility for the Rockets’ elimination loss.

“Everything falls on my shoulders,” Harden said, via ESPN. “I take responsibility for it, both ends of the floor. You know, it’s tough, especially the way we lost at home for Game 6. But it happened. Now we move forward.”

But now, it appears enough is enough and the curse may be lifted … at least until Harden busted out the celebration again come next season. Although it will be up to Lil B at that point once again.
