Kenyon Martin is in denial about the legitimacy of the BasedGod Curse, but the former NBA player may soon find out just how real it is. TMZ Sports caught up with Martin earlier this week to discuss not being in the BasedGod's good graces. However, K-Mart scoffed at the idea of being cursed for calling out Jeremy Lin for rocking dreadlocks. "He don't mean shit," he said of Lil B. "He's a nobody."
TMZ Sports then spoke with Lil B, who wants to settle his differences with Martin out on the court. "I want to say to Kenyon Martin, I challenge you 1-on-1 to a game and we'll see if the curse is real or not," he said. "You beat me, you're right ... the curse is fake."
While it would be easy to count out Lil B against the 6-foot-9 Martin, you can never underestimate the impact of having the BasedGod in your corner. Since stealing Lil B's cooking dance, James Harden has never been able to lead the Houston Rockets to the NBA Finals. Last season, the Rockets were eliminated from the playoffs in a 39-point blowout at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs, where Harden scored just 10 points on 2-for-11 shooting. After constantly refusing to play the rapper 1-on-1, Kevin Durant was never able to reach the mountaintop until he joined Lil B's team, the Golden State Warriors.
The BasedGod has impacted the careers of a number of NBA players. K-Mart should do everything he can to not put himself to that list. He should consider this as his final warning.
