Moses Malone Jr. Says James Harden Wanted To “Teach Him A Lesson” Over Offensive Facebook Post
The son of an NBA veteran who is suing the Houston Rockets James Harden for orchestrating his robbery and beat down outside of a strip club says the player put a $20,000 hit out on him to ensure the assault occurred.
Moses Malone Jr. – son of basketball great Moses Malone – is suing Harden, the strip joint VLive, and its owner, Damon Cobbs, claiming the player was so angry about a Facebook post that Malone made about him, that he paid the club’s manager $20,000 to put a hit out on Malone and get his revenge, according to a new complaint filed earlier this month and was obtained by BOSSIP.
Malone contends that in June 2016, Harden became enraged when he learned that Malone criticized him online over the way he was running his Houston basketball camp.
Malone wrote: “Don’t he make WAY more $ then (sic) Donald Driver???? But, he charging 249$ & the inner city kids have NO CHANCE to go to his camp. Hollywood Harden #Fact.”
According to the complaint, after Malone made the post, he began receiving threatening texts from Harden’s friends, club employees and and one time even Harden himself.
