The Brooklyn Nets and the Based God.

I know, I know, just follow along here. Chances are you’re snowed in and have time anyway.

We start with last night. To recap, the Nets took down the Minnesota Timberwolves, 98-97, thanks in part to a game-winner courtesy of Spencer Dinwiddie (more on him shortly).

(Much) later last night — actually in the morning hours, Lil B tweeted out something that leads us to believe that the Based God curse on D’Angelo Russell has been lifted.

Yeah ...

… Oh, you don’t remember this!?

Well then, let’s flashback.

After Russell’s rookie season in his pre-dread era, Lil B put one of his infamous curses on Russell. This came after the then 20-year-old Los Angeles Laker exposed Nick Young for cheating on then-famous fiancée Iggy Azalea.

In retrospect, (hell, even at the time) it appeared that Russell did Young a favor, but that’s neither here nor there.

Anyway, Lil B cursed Russell on SportsNation. An exclusive, no less.

Russell responded by tweeting (then deleting) what seemed to be an indirect at Lil B, doing the typical new dude thing of questioning somebody’s relevance.

Russell also gave Lil B a poop emoji and a thumbs down later that month.

The curse has also been placed on Kevin Durant prior to joining the Golden State Warriors, Russell Westbrook and James Harden at different points. Westbrook was cursed after Lil B said that the 2017 NBA MVP looked like a sandwich. Westbrook responded by saying he’s never heard of Lil B, and I’m willing to bet that he’s lying, because he wears Vans.

Lil B was in the freakin’ Pack!!

But we digress. Back to D’Angelo.

Lil B tweeted out his big news about DLo at around 4 a.m. Brooklyn time, 1 a.m. Oakland time, offering his well wishes to Russell, who’s injured (wonder why?).

Then, Dinwiddie chimed in, who, after his big night, is looking for more All-Star support in the shape of Lil B.

And so, Lil B joined the Spencer Dinwiddie #NBAVote thing.

Then Lil B, who had blessed seven NBA teams, but not any in Brooklyn last week, extended his support to the entire Nets organization.

The Nets responded in the manner you’re supposed to when addressing The Based God.

Nothing corporate about that. But then, the marketing instinct took over...

Individual fans expressed their gratitude.

Anyway, we good now? No more curses in Brooklyn. Back to shoveling!
