"What could possibly happen to him that's worse than where he is right now?" host Michelle Beadle asked.
One might argue the Lakers guard couldn't have had a more troublesome rookie year off the court. By now, the world has heard how he recorded and posted a video of Nick Young admitting he cheated on Iggy Azalea. Russell has been a prominent sports punchline and easy target for three months now.
According to Lil B, however, his curse applies to only on-the-court performance. Despite coaching issues, Russell was fine in that category in his first year; he made the All-Rookie second team. Does this mean the 2015 No. 2 pick will lose the only thing he has going for him right now? Ruthless decision by The Based God.
Lil B seemed to offer an olive branch, though, and Russell took it well. This game of 21 needs to happen.
With the response of the people I'm willing to consider lifting the curse off d Russell IF he plays Lil B In a game of 21 basketball - Lil B— Lil B THE BASEDGOD (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) June 10, 2016

Last week, Lil B appeared on another ESPN show, The Jump, and declared Durant and Harden are indeed still bearing the weight of his curse. It's not clear why the Worldwide Leader has had Lil B on its programming schedule so much lately. They really let this dude enter SportsNation like this.
Lil B is handing out curses left and right; he can't be stopped. It's worth noting this is Nick Young's most recent Like on Twitter:
I'm thinking about talking to "The BasedGod" about potentially cursing deangelo Russell of the Lakers for setting up nick young - Lil B— Lil B THE BASEDGOD (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) May 21, 2016
