Ex-NBA player Erick Barkley punches parent at 3rd grade basketball game [video]


What happens when an ex-NBA player is coaching his nine-year-old son’s basketball team, and gets into it with another parent? Apparently a fist fight. Former NBA player Erick Barkley – he spent time with the Blazers, Bulls and Spurs – allegedly punched the parent of one of his son’s teammates following a one-point loss.


“Before the game, Barkley got into a beef with the father of a kid on the other team. Barkley said the kid couldn’t play because he was on more than one team,” said a parent. “After a half-hour of arguing, the kid was allowed to play.”

But as soon as the game was over, a heart-breaking one-point loss for Barkley’s squad, he allegedly walked over to the father and punched him several times.

The parent declined to press charges.
