When Smush Parker punches a teen, it makes headline news. According to Yahoo!, Smush Parker allegedly punched Wolfgang Novogratz during a New York City pickup game. The incident occurred after Novogratz fouled Parker. The punch was enough to send Novogratz to the hospital but he is said to be "fine" and isn't pressing charges.

"Wolfie scored back-to-back baskets on Smush. At the other end, Smush went up for a shot. There was a hard foul, and they both went down. Smush got up and punched Wolfie in the face," explained a source.

Smush Parker allegedly punched the teen but its not that hard to believe given his violent track record. He was released from the NBA after a fight he had with a parking attendant back in 2008. He played for The Lakers and The Heat during his career but not many people cared for him. Lakers star Kobe Bryant has had quite a few not nice things to say about Parker -- infamously calling him "the worst" and making sarcastic comments about why he was even on the team to begin with.

According to the report, Novogratz is an NBA prospect even though he's only in high school. He has already received college offers to play basketball at Northwestern, Rutgers, and Villanova.

Smush Parker's punch suggests he's jealous of the teen -- or maybe he's just a violent person in general. According to TMZ, Parker has denied the incident altogether.
