Lawsuit Claims James Harden Paid For Assault Of NBA Legend’s Son

The son of an NBA legend has filed a lawsuit against James Harden alleging that the Houston Rockets star orchestrated a robbery against him, according to Fox 26 in Houston.

Moses Malone Jr., the son of former Rockets center and Hall of Famer Moses Malone, claims that Harden paid $20,000 for a group of men to assault and rob him because of a Facebook post he wrote criticizing Harden for charging children to attend his basketball camp.

The incident in question occurred outside of the V-Live strip club in Houston in June of 2016. Malone said he was beaten up by men with guns and robbed of $15,000 in jewelry, his cellphone, car keys and a credit card, according to the Washington Post.

Four people were charged in connection with the attack, ABC 13 reported.

Harden has not been charged with any crime and a representative for the club, Carl A. Moore, said that he did not believe the basketball player had any connection to the attack.
