Headline Goes Here TMZ Sports

HOUSTON - Former Houston Rockets forward and seven-time NBA champion Robert Horry was involved in a fight at his son's basketball tournament in Los Angeles last weekend, according to TMZ Sports.

The video shows a man who looks like Horry getting pushed in the chest by another man at the Nike Basketball 3ON3 Tournament at L.A. Live, according to the TMZ Sports report. Horry then rushes the man and throws a few punches before they split, and Horry returns to where he was originally standing.

From the TMZ Sports video, it looks like Horry talks to a referee and then walks across the court where children are playing basketball.

“The guy was trash talking the whole game. He shoved me. Where I’m from, you protect yourself,” Horry told TMZ Sports, confirming the incident.

A representative for the tournament had no comment, according to the TMZ Sports report.

Horry was drafted by the Rockets in the first round with the 11th overall pick in the 1992 NBA Draft.

Horry played college ball at Alabama, with the Rockets from 1992-1996, with the Suns in 1996-97, the Lakers in 1997-2003 and the Spurs from 2003-2008.

Horry, 46, is listed at 6 feet 9 inches tall and 240 pounds.
