Houston Rockets guard James Harden has played with a weight on his shoulders for the past three seasons: the curse of Brandon Christopher McCartney aka Lil B aka The Based God.

That is now over. Lil B went on First Take earlier this week and officially lifted the curse. Lil B talked with the ESPN’s First Take crew and lifting the curse on Kevin Durant and in a spur of the moment cleared Harden.

Lil B put the curse on Harden in 2015 because he dared to use Lil B’s patented and trademarked “stirring the pot” hand motion. I assume it was patented and trademarked with the way Lil B protects it.

Could it also be possible that Lil B is desperate to claim ownership over something culturally relevant because he hasn’t been able to drop a track that is worthwhile since 2011 or even a mixtape since 2015? I don’t know.

I guess Harden can be happy the curse is lifted, he can get back to averaging 29-11-8 per game.
