James Harden is in the news for a recent altercation in which Moses Malone Jr. was attacked.

The facts are sketchy at best in this situation. What we do know is Moses Malone Jr was recently beaten and robbed by 4 men.  Malone Jr. has since stated he believes the incident occurred based on a criticism he levied at Harden this summer.

Malone Jr. felt Harden was over charging for his basketball camps and not allowing kids from lower incomes the chance to participate.

In discussion with an ABC Reporter Malone Jr said the move was in retaliation for the following facebook post:

Malone Jr. believes this is why 4 men attacked him to make him pay for his comment. The 4 men who attacked the son of a former NBA great allegedly stole $15,000 in jewelry.

Harden meanwhile may have nothing at all to do with this other of being a victim of circumstance.
