James Harden knows who Lil B is.

The Houston Rockets shooting guard and 2015 MVP runner-up imitates the rapper’s “cooking dance” on the court after he scores a basket or makes a prolific play on the court.

Still, Harden has never acknowledged the Based God formally or admitted to imitating his signature jig.

When TMZ caught up with Harden in Los Angeles yesterday (June 3) outside of the 1 Oak nightclub, the Rockets’ all-star appeared clueless about the situation.

“I don’t even know what happened,” he says in response to a question about the Based God’s curse. “I don’t even know who that is.”

Yet, years ago, Harden referenced the rapper in a retweeted post on his Twitter.

“Gucci, Gucci” rapper Kreayshawn sifted through Harden’s Twitter posts and was able to uncover the aforementioned Tweet where Harden not only wrote the rapper’s name but responded to one of his lyrics.

“Shouts out to kreayshawn @KREAYSHAWN @JHarden13 for uncovering facts about James harden i may push for the curse for his lying,” B wrote on Twitter.

At press time, Harden has not responded to Lil B or Kreayshawn’s Tweets.
