The Miami Heat are reigning NBA champions, basically beating the Thunder in every conceivable fashion on their way to the franchise’s second title. They were better on offense, better on defense and better at getting random huge performances from guys you’d never expect to score a bunch of points in an NBA Finals game, while also better at having the best player in the series. In just about every way, they Heat were better. Ergo, champs.

However, it wasn’t just the Heat being better that lost the Thunder the title. It was also a long-standing beef betwixt Kevin Durant and one of the worst rappers in the world, Lil B. This comes from May 2011 and it is probably the main reason the Oklahoma City Thunder finished in second place this season.

Even though Kevin Durant is totally right and Lil B is super wack, this seems like a legitimate cause for why the Thunder have failed to win a title in every season since Lil B placed the curse. After all, the Chicago Cubs haven’t won a title in 105 years, largely because they didn’t let a goat attend a game at Wrigley Field once upon a time.

That’s why this is REALLY good news.

Good news, Thunder fans. “The Basedgods Curse,” which you probably didn’t even know was the sole reason why you lost the NBA finals, has finally been lifted after a long and arduous 13 months. Next year should be a far easier go of things, without all that pesky curse stuff in the way.

Congratulations to the Thunder on winning the 2013 NBA championship. You finally did it.

  1. Thank you Based God.

    -An OKC Fan.

  2. Durant will win a title. BTW!! WHO THE HELL IS LIL B? Probably one of those crappy mainstream artist that gets played on the radio!!

  3. So “Basedgods” wasn’t a strange typo? Well, I’ll be damned. I just assumed he was trying to spell Basegods and threw in a D just for fun.

  4. Worst rapper in the world? Stop hating. Bless your heart based god.

  5. The media should be to blame for this timing. You all should have had this story up sooner! Can you imaging the jokes that could have been made by fans in the stands, players, etc?

    The TNT crew would have eaten this up!

  6. just lost major respect for you, Trey. you don’t understand the BasedGod. Thank you BasedGod.

  7. Thank you, BasedGod. We are all grateful. Wet like Wonton Soup.

  8. alright trey, when lil b puts the curse on you and you lose the ability to grow a beard and type blog posts we’ll see who’s the super wack rapper.

  9. The Thunder are free to swag like Ellen Degeneres. Thank you basedgod.

  10. Protect Lil B protect the Based God we must stay positive in the light of such haters who look down on the Bitch Mob out of jealousy because we have no greed. We have all the bitches. And we shall proser. Thank you Baed God.

  11. The Basketball Jones should really ease off on any music writing. The post about the Liars was cringe-worthy but forgivable, but with this post it’s starting to feel like you really are annoyingly ignorant. The reason I read/watch TBJ every day has a lot to do with insight, and your collective awareness of the subtleties of the game. Your music writing is the opposite. It’s the equivalent of the guy who only likes highlight reels of dunks. Which of course is fine, but I don’t want to hear that guy talk about basketball.

    Also I would point out that there are many music themed blogs which publish interesting and thoughtful writing about sports (for example, Ego Trip or Impose) so it’s not like people are incapable of writing intelligently about both.
