The Atlanta Hawks are leaving no stone unturned. The franchise has finally broken through to its first ever conference finals appearance, which took more than 40 years to reach, and, after avoiding a nasty scare with DeMarre Carroll, the Hawks cannot afford to have any bad voodoo hanging over their head. That’s why they’ve taken a proactive approach with Lil B’s Based God curse.
The Bay Area rapper recently put his hex on James Harden for stealing his cooking dance. The Beard was well on his way to breaking the curse with 38 points against the Warriors until he fumbled away the final possession in Game 2, a development that Atlanta clearly noticed.
Everything seems squared away between Lil’ B and the Hawks. With a blessing from the Based God, expect an NBA Championship in Atlanta some time soon.
The Golden State Warriors have now reached out to thank the Based God for his help against Harden in last night’s win.
BUT, as a reminder, Harden’s turnover in the final seconds wasn’t as big a deal as some are making it seem.
