The NBA may be basketball, a beloved sport to many, but it’s also a culture; granted many of these players once were from the wrong side of the tracks and associated with “gang bangers” so this picture shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone:
James Harden threw up a gang signs after another pivotal three-pointer, and while it’s not something I or plenty of NBA enthusiasts focus on, rapper Slim Thug made it painfully aware he was unhappy about as these are just a few of the tweets he sent out.
At the end of the day, James Harden will be remembered for his basketball skills and not for throwing up a gang sign or too.
Perhaps, Slim Thug could ask Harden for some hoop pointers.
