A basketball argument got way out of hand in Memphis, sending one man to the hospital.
Memphis first responders well called to the scene July 3 after a man was shot in the chest. According to WREG, the man was shot by his cousin after the two intensely argued if Memphis Tigers head basketball coach Penny Hardaway was in fact a good coach.
The victim told police that he was inside the home when he got into a fight with his cousin over whether or not Hardaway was a good coach. The verbal altercation escalated and that’s when Tyrone Taylor allegedly punched the man in the face before pulling out a gun and firing.
Taylor has seen been taken into custody and charged with multiple crimes, including second-degree murder.
Is Penny Hardaway in fact a good basketball coach? That’s up for debate, just do it at your own risk.
