Look: The Son of an NBA Legend Was Beat Up and Robbed for Disrespecting James Harden

And it was outside a Houston strip club.

Published July 21st

James Harden definitely has clout in these H-town streets.

How much? Well, enough for a son of an NBA Hall of Famer to allegedly get beat down and robbed for not putting respek on the Houston Rockets' All-Star's name.

Click2Houston.com reported Wednesday night that four men have been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon after they allegedly beat up and robbed Moses Malone Jr. outside of a Houston strip club last month.

According to the website, Darian Blount, Kavon Boutte, Oscar Wattell and Deavion Lewis took offense to a Facebook post that Malone Jr. made about Harden and approached him with their beef. 

They allegedly told the son of late Hall of Famer Moses Malone that he had to be punished for his disrespect of The Beard and that's when they allegedly brandished their guns, attacked and robbed him of $15,000 worth of jewelry.

Here's Malone Jr.'s Facebook post, which triggered the attack.

All this being said, it should be noted that Harden himself hasn't been charged with any crime.
