If you're an athlete of any reasonable stature, the last thing you want is to be afflicted by a curse that keeps you from maximizing your success. One man has been at the center of athlete curses over the last few years, and it appears the BasedGod might have another victim in mind.

So who's the guilty party this time? It's not an NBA All-Star, it's not a veteran who has tortured Lil B's favorite team, and in fact, it's not even a player who has participated in an NBA game yet. This time, it's a rookie, as Lonzo Ball appears to be the newest target for the BasedGod's curse.

Lonzo ball is a few seconds away from being cursed his rookie year on the lakers, nas is hip hop and always relevant, watch ur team - Lil B


If you haven't been paying attention, the comment Lil B is referring to came earlier in the week, when Ball dismissed the relevance of the Queensbridge legend, declaring more recent rappers are "real hip hop" in an episode of the Ball clan's new reality series, Ball in the Family. 

"Y’all outdated, man. Don’t nobody listen to Nas anymore," said Ball. "Real hip-hop is Migos, Future.”

As you might expect, a teenager disrespecting Nas—a rapper with some of the greatest albums of all-time under his belt—did not go over well with the public, and Lil B is on the verge of taking the backlash to a completely different level. With Ball on the verge of joining former cursed athletes like James Harden and Kevin Durant, the BasedGod's warning was met with applause on Twitter.

🤐daaaamn welcome to the big leagues

The BasedGod also made sure to mention departed Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell, who drew the ire of plenty when he dimed out the habits of former teammate Nick Young. Lil B seems displeased about the character of recent Lakers point guards, Ball included.

Didnt the lakers just trade a snitch deanglo Russell? Lakers front office what's y'all problem? Step ur PGs up. LONZO WATCH UR MOUTH - Lil B


So far, the BasedGod's curse has done nothing to slow down the Ball family's takeover of all things sports and pop culture. The loudmouth behind Big Baller Brand, LaVar Ball, is all set to make an appearance in NBA 2K18. Yes, even in a video game you can be told you're not a big baller.

They're not out of the woods yet, however. It sounds like things could get real bad, real fast for the Ball clan if Lonzo doesn't get his act together.

Deep - lil b


And the family is taking this threat seriously, or so it seems, because the youngest member of the family, LaMelo Ball, is singing Lil B's praises on Twitter.

Lil B one of the hardest rappers don't @ me

Naw y'all think I'm kidding ask @ZO2_
I'm always playing it in the car and house😂💯

Since the BasedGod recently lifted the curse on Harden and welcomed Durant to the Bay Area with open arms, there almost needs to be a new high-profile athlete in his sights. Enter Ball, who now has this to weigh on top of the usual rookie pressure. Good luck, kid.
