Some believe that a Bay Area rap star may have magical sway when it comes to a Warriors win on the courts.
Rapper Lil B has lifted his five-year-old curse against Oklahoma City basketball star Kevin Durant following Monday's announcement that he's joining the Warriors.
In 2011, Lil B placed a curse on Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant after he said the player tweeted out unflattering remarks on his rapping skills.
"As life unravels and superstars make decisions that change lifes [sic], welcome home KD the curse is lifted," Lil B tweeted on Monday.
Lil B has beefed with other NBA stars in the past.
Lil B's well-publicized curse against Rockets star James Harden for appropriating the "cooking dance" he says he invented was thought by some fans to be a secret asset in losing games against the Warriors in 2015.
Born Brandon McCartney and raised in Berkeley, Lil B has long held hoop dreams of his own.
In 2012, he tried out for the Santa Cruz Warriors, the Golden State Warriors' D-League team. Two years later, he released "Hoop Dreams," a basketball-themed mixtape that featured a song and video called "Gotta Make the NBA."
