Over the weekend, former NBA baller Robert Horry found himself in a fistfight with a heckler at his son’s basketball tournament. TMZ obtained video of the altercation, which shows a man associated with the opposing team shoving the seven-time NBA champion and then Horry reacting by throwing several punches in return.
“Witnesses tell us a man affiliated with the opposing team was heckling Horry throughout the game when he approached R.H. and pushed him.
Horry responded with his fists … throwing several punches at the man. It’s unclear if any of the punches landed.
“The guy was trash talking the whole game. He shoved me. Where I’m from, you protect yourself.”
R.H. — a 7x NBA champion — says he ultimately decided to walk away rather than continue to fight, knowing he was “the only one who was gonna lose in this situation.”
Robert Horry claims this same man has been verbally abusive many times at past events.
