Now I understand why Scottie Pippen punched the guy for talking about his beautiful wife’s ass but I’m not buying this story that TMZ broke about James Harden punching a guy because he said “Kobe owns your ass.”
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.
Maybe this guy was at the Drew League game where Kobe scored 45 including the game winner over Harden a couple of years ago. Doubt it, James had 44.
I wouldn’t say anybody owns anybody but I remember watching Harden “owning” Kobe a few times during this Rockets win.
Also in a recent GM survey on NBA.com, James Harden received 56.7% of the votes for Best Shooting Guard in the NBA with Kobe coming in a far second at 20%.
So what do all these references and YouTube videos mean? Nothing more than the amount of money that guy is going to get from his silly lawsuit.
