Easily the most recognizeable non-athlete figure from the Golden State Warriors-Houston Rockets series was Riley Curry.
But the second-most recognizeable? Definitely Lil B.
It’s well known now that the Bay Area based hip hop mogul and pop culture icon slapped a curse on James Harden. Now, following Harden’s claims that he has no idea who Lil B is is probably just going to keep him in hot water with the Based God for a very long time.
The storyline snagged national attention mid-series thanks to a San Jose Mercury News blog post uncovering that Lil B had hexed Harden for stealing his “cooking dance” and claiming it was his own.
(It also doesn’t help the Houston guard’s case that B is a die-hard Dubs fan, to the point that Dubs fans have bring Lil B fatheads to Oracle Arena.)
With the Rockets season over, Harden could have bowed out and gotten away from said curse. Except when asked in a closing presser about his knowledge of the curse, he reportedly said that he has no idea who Lil B is. Which, as BroBible.com chronicles, led some of B’s rapper friends uncovering Twitter evidence that Harden is lying.

Maybe Harden and his crazy beard are just tired of being hazed for not giving Lil B credit for his dance moves. But we’re thinking that fibbing about it is only going to make the situation worse.
