Like an elephant, Lil B never forgets.
When Golden State Warriors center Marreese Speights tweeted “Lil B is terrible” on September 2, 2011, he probably never thought it would come back to haunt him. But, as he learned during Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday, the Based God hears everything that’s said about him – and isn’t afraid to bide his time until the perfect opportunity for revenge arises.
In the closing seconds of a thrilling third quarter between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Warriors, Speights found himself streaking toward the basket for an uncontested dunk. Not only would it have cut the Dubs’ deficit to a single point, it would’ve given them some much-needed momentum heading into the final stretch.
Instead of capitalizing on the golden opportunity, though, the 6-foot-10 Speights saw it all come crashing down, thanks to the curse that is ruining NBA careers – one hater at a time.
Of course, while we’re certainly not about to suggest that the Bay Area rapper’s powers aren’t real, it’s important to note that even Lil B claims he never actually laid a hex on Speights – the Based God is benevolent – perhaps suggesting that his miss had nothing to do with the supernatural. The part where the ref falls on top of him, though? That’s gotta be the result of some evil spirits or something.
I love Cleveland and respect the only official players to be cursed was James harden (warned) (gone) and Kevin Durant (gone) – Lil B

To add insult to injury, the Warriors lost in overtime by two measly points and now head to Cleveland with the series tied 1-1, LeBron James playing out of his mind and the Cavs believing that, despite being down two All-Stars, they’ve still got a shot at stealing this one. The Based God may be no match for the best player on the planet (perhaps he should try to help help Steph Curry with his shooting instead).
But, hey, at least one Warriors fan walked away from Oracle Arena happy: Knocking down a miracle shot to win a brand new BMW tends to do that.
