NOV. 1 UPDATE: Through three games, Harden is shooting 22.2 percent from the field and 9.4 percent from 3-point range, and his Rockets are 0-3 with each loss coming by 20 points.

Lil B acknowledged this after just Game 2:

The curse ... is real?

ORIGINAL POST: Just when you thought it was safe ... he's back.

The start of the NBA season is mere days away. So it's only right that Lil B (a.k.a The Based God) would resurface with a good old-fashioned curse on his favorite target, James Harden.

What could The Beard possibly have done to aggravate Lil B before the regular-season action even gets underway?

Stop me if you've heard this one before: COOKING. Yep, it appears as if the Houston Rockets star still refuses to acknowledge Lil B as the creator of the "cooking dance," and thus the rapper was not amused when Harden posted this picture to Instagram:

7days until the cook is back to work! #HTown

Lil B expressed his displeasure over the matter to TMZ:

"The Curse is officially back active. It's disgusting. ... He's still in denial. ... He will pay for the blatant disrespect and no honor to the originator. All he has to do is show love."

Tell 'em why you mad, Lil B.

So, now that Harden has officially been put on notice (again), the question remains: will The Beard ever "show love" to The Based God?

Stay tuned. We have a feeling this won't be the last time we hear from the all-powerful rapper this season. ...
