After a dismal final game, James Harden‘s off-season just got worse. The Houston Rockets star is being sued by Moses Malone, Jr. for allegedly lining him up for a fade delivery and robbery, outside of a strip club.
In late June of 2016, Malone Jr., son of the namesake NBA legend, claimed Harden sent the goonswho promptly robbed him at gunpoint outside of V Live in Houston.
Reportedly, their beef stemmed from Malone criticizing Harden for charging too much for his basketball camp.
Today (May 16), Bleacher Report reports that Malone is suing Harden for “orchestrating” the robbery. According to Isiah Carey of Fox 26, Malone claims that Harden paid a group of people $20,000 to rob him.
Harden’s lawyer maintains that Moses Malone, Jr’s allegations are false.

More tonight at 10 pm on #IsiahFactorUncensored Rusty Hardin is James Harden's attorney and he sent me this statement: I am in Boston for depositions so I haven't seen the petition but I have previously discussed Mose's allegations with James and others, and I am totally comfortable that the allegations are untrue. Unfortunately, I am afraid this is just another example of people shopping for a deep pocket when they find that the people actually responsible have no money.
