James Harden Sued By a Lakers Fan for Allegedly Punching Him

What’s up with Houston Rockets stars and opposing fans these days? A man has filed suit alleging that James Harden punched him after being told that Kobe Bryant “owns” him. Per TMZ: “According to the lawsuit, Harden was on his way out of Greystone Manor nightclub in West Hollywood November 3rd — riding in the back seat of some SUV — when he rolled the window down to greet fans. That’s when a man named Barak Golan says he shouted at Harden, ‘Kobe owns your ass!’ and Harden allegedly socked him in the face. But Harden wasn’t done. Barak says the Rockets guard flipped him off as his SUV sped away. Barak is now suing for assault and battery, demanding unspecified damages. Harden’s reps had no comment.”

    Asshole or not, Harden should have kept his sensitive ass in his car and kept counting his money.

    …plus, Bryant owns Harden.

    Talk the talk? He did not challenge him to a fight. He told him the truth.

    The truth hurts it seems. Makes you throw sucker punches and dash off with the rest of your security.

    What’s happening with these Rockets’ superstars? They’re acting crazy: Howard and Harden lately. It won’t be long before Howard and Harden will have a brawl in a basketball court.
