Lil B appeared on ESPN’s First Take Sunday (June 4) to speak on the NBA Finals and was asked about the dreaded curse.
“James Harden’s curse is lifted. It’s done. It’s official. The curse is lifted,” Lil B revealed to the applause of the Oakland audience.

Harden was first cursed back in May 2015 for not crediting Lil B with the celebratory cooking dance the Houston Rockets star performed during games. The curse was temporarily lifted before being imposed again for the 2015 season.
This year, Lil B said the curse was still in effect and threatened Harden’s chances at being named MVP.
After a 39-point loss to the San Antonio Spurs that ended the Rockets season last month, Lil B hinted at ending the curse for good and now it’s official.
I apologize to James harden I'm ready to talk and end the curse… it's time to talk and be the leader everyone believes you are – Lil B
