Beware the Based God: Lil B curses LeBron and the Cavs.

The Cleveland Cavaliers went toe-to-toe with the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but it came at a price.

A superhuman effort from LeBron James went for naught, J.R. Smith reminded us that he’s still J.R. Smith and Kyrie Irving fractured his kneecap, taking him out of the remainder of the series. And as if all of that wasn’t bad enough, they’ve apparently also angered the Based God, who cares not for mercy.

Following the Dubs’ 108-100 victory, Lil BBay Area rapper, Warriors fan and High Priest of Based – took to Twitter to say James and Smith deserved the heartbreaking loss for stealing his cooking dance without paying homage.

ESPN even aired the threat during James’ postgame press conference, and Lil B subsequently retweeted every single screen grab – the Based God demands sacrifices (and publicity) after all.

In case you need reminding, Lil B has previously feuded with Kevin Durant and placed a curse on the Rockets’ James Harden during last month’s Western Conference Finals after he, too, did the dance without the Based God’s blessing. B was also in attendance for the closing game of the series, when Harden set an NBA playoff record to forget.

Was it merely a coincidence that Harden posted his worst game of the season when Lil B was in the building, reminding the world that the cooking dance is his and only his? Perhaps. But the Cavaliers may want to cover their bases before it’s too late.
