Be careful, Lakers: the Lil B curse might be upon you, all because of a rookie mistake from rookie Lonzo Ball. On his reality show Ball in the Family, Ball made a bold statement, claiming "Y’all outdated man. Don’t nobody listen to Nas no more." As quoted in XXL, he continued, arguing, "Real hip-hop is Migos and Future."

This isn't the first controversial remark the 19-year-old fresh Lakers pick made this summer. On July 9, Ball claimed 21 Savage's Issa Album is better than Jay-Z's 4:44.

These hot takes caught the eye of the BASEDGOD himself, who responded with an immediate threat directed towards Ball and his new team, the Los Angeles Lakers.

It should be noted he originally threatened LaVar Ball, Lonzo's father, mistakenly confusing the two. Does this mean the curse is diluted?

Only time will tell. After all, Lil B hasn't officially cursed the team. If the Lakers truly go down because of the stupid rap opinions of a 19-year-old basketball player who looks like a 6th grader drew a picture of Drake, then who knows how they'll ever recover.

For those of you who don't believe the BASEDGOD's curses have any effect, where were you during when Kevin Durant kept falling apart while under the wrath of Lil B?

Listen to Lil B's Kevin Durant diss track and try to imagine what the Lonzo Ball version would be like.
