As a resident of Houston, I can tell you that the traffic in H-Town is as bad as it gets in the US. And the last thing most drivers here want to deal with is a couple of wanna-be James Hardens who thought playing a game of basketball, on a kids hoop, in the middle of the street, would be funny. Personally, I probably would have turned the music up, recorded them and put out a ballislife mixtape called “Next Eduardo Najera and Gustavo Ayon!”
I’m obviously kidding but it doesn’t sound like the city was kidding with “pranksters” Edward Gonzalez and Roland Zepeda for their basketball stunt on May 31st. Earlier this month, according to the Houston Chronicle, Gonzalez was sentenced to 110 days in jail after pleading guilty to obstruction of a highway or passageway. His opponent was also charged and is currently free on a $10,000 bond until his court date next month.
