James Harden got to take an early pause during these NBA playoffs as his Philadelphia 76ers swept the Brooklyn Nets in the first round. And it appears the star point guard was in no mood to take it easy after ending the series at the first opportunity.
The former league MVP was caught on camera slapping another man outside of the Flamingo casino on the Vegas Strip, two days removed from helping the Sixers eliminate the Nets.
The footage, which is believed to have been taken around 1:25 AM on Monday, per TMZ Sports, shows Harden getting into an argument with the individual, whom he’s also heard yelling at. He then taps him in the chest before slapping him in the face.

TMZ sources claim the man was part of Harden’s entourage and they are said to have gone about the rest of the night as if nothing happened, with Harden taking him inside when he noticed that there were onlookers.
It could be that Harden’s boy had overstepped certain boundaries before the NBA star checked him and got him back in line. But there was nothing to go on in terms of what started the confrontation.
The publication reports that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Department received no reports involving Harden.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
