James Harden on Lil B: 'I don't even know who that is'

Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

James Harden is only inviting more misfortune by firing back at the BasedGod.

Rapper Lil B called out Harden for stealing his cooking dance during the Western Conference Finals between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors.

The Bay Area native went on to curse Harden - much like how he cursed Kevin Durant - which culminated in Harden setting an NBA playoff record for committing 13 turnovers in the series-clinching game for Golden State.

Lil B took credit for Harden's miserable Game 5 performance.

Five days later, TMZ caught up with Harden in California and the Beard was none too pleased about Lil B's name being broached.

TMZ: "Can I get your thoughts on the whole Lil B situation?"

Harden: "I don't even know what happened."

TMZ: "He did the BasedGod's curse because you stole his cookin' it up move."

Harden: "I don't even know ... I don't know who that is."

Harden, however, tweeted about Lil B way back in 2011.

Upon hearing the news, Lil B threatened to redouble the curse against Harden.

The entire ordeal could have been avoided had Harden just recognized Lil B as the creator of the cooking celebration. The BasedGod put out an instructional video in 2010 before Harden popularized the move as a celebration this season.
