The basketball player's decision to head to the team was made today through the Players Tribune and quickly met with mixed reactions. A quick glance at Twitter reveals that NBA fans were split on whether teaming KD with Splash Brothers Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will make the Warriors unstoppable in the 2016-17 season or set them up for a big fall.
Having unleashed his ruthless "Based God Curse" on Durant in 2011, B is letting bygones be bygones, however, and is now welcoming the all-star player to Oakland.
"The BasedGod" wants to speak,As life unravels and superstars make decisions that change lifes, welcome home KD the curse is lifted - Lil B— Lil B THE BASEDGOD (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) July 4, 2016
Backing up a bit, the beef started when Durant had posted a since-deleted tweet labelling Lil B a "wack rapper." In response, the prolific lyricist had prophesied over twitter that this unwarranted diss meant Durant would never win a ring.
KEVIN DURANT WILL NEVER WIN THE TITLE AFTER HE SAID "LIL B" IS A WACK RAPPER,— Lil B THE BASEDGOD (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) May 26, 2011
"THE BASEDGODS CURSE"#THEBASEDGODSCURSE ON DURANT - Lil B
An online back-and-forth between almost led to a one-on-one game between Durant and Lil B, who had once tried out for the Warriors' D-League team in Santa Cruz, but the match didn't happen. In 2014, B put a track called "Fuck KD" on his Hoop Life mixtape.
Only time will tell if KD's alliance with Chef Curry will provide something tasty for the Bay, but it seems as if the beef between Lil B and the player has been quashed. This would appear to be a major relief to other famous rapping NBA fans.
