Houston Rockets star James Harden has finally been approached and asked about the alleged “Based God” curse cast upon him from West Coast rapper Lil B this week.
Approached by a paparazzo, Harden denied having any knowledge of Lil B or his curse.
“I don’t even know what happened,” Harden said when asked about Lil B. “I don’t even know, I mean, I don’t know who he is. [My off-season] just happened five days ago, so I’m just chilling. I’m happy to be back home. Yup.” (TMZ Sports)

Recently, New York rapper A$AP Rocky talked about Lil B’s publicized “curse” on the Houston Rockets star.
“Yo, did you see him at the game? He went to the game the night [the Houston Rockets] lost and he started cooking! Do y’all got [the video?] I’m dead serious. [James] Harden and them lost. Pulled up to the game with a turquoise bucket and just started cooking. Based God. Based God.” (“Whoolywood Shuffle”)
The Based God credited his curse for making Harden play poorly in the Rockets’ elimination game last month.
James harden had 13 turnovers for record in NBA, he did not pay Lil B cooking dance homage that's the same number as his jersey – Lil B
