Danny Ainge has done plenty this offseason, but on Tuesday rapper Lil B did something greater than any trade, draft pick or signing could achieve.
Lil B, who is perhaps best known for cursing and blessing teams and athletes, posted a photo with Jaylen Brown Tuesday afternoon, after which he officially gave Brown and the Celtics his blessing for the 2017-18 season.
Nba jaylen brown and the Boston celtics have my blessings this year for the @Nba blessings !!! Congrats to jaylen for being real! - Lil B— Lil B THE BASEDGOD (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) September 5, 2017
Lil B’s blessing and cursing goes back to 2011, when he cursed Kevin Durant for insulting his music. He lifted the curse after the Thunder lost in the 2012 NBA finals, but then put it back on in 2014. He cursed James Harden in 2015 for stealing a dance move from him, but lifted it in June.
More recently, Lil B threatened to curse the Lakers after Lonzo Ball said that “nobody” cares about Nas’ music anymore, and that Migos and Future are “real hip-hop.”
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— Lil B THE BASEDGOD (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) September 2, 2017
Celtics fans should be happy with this news. The only thing that would make it better is if Lil B actually curses the Lakers to finishing with a draft pick between No. 2 and 5 in the 2018 draft.
