Despite what it looked like, Nipsey Hussle says he wasn't about to jump in the Lakers-Rockets brawl.
Over the weekend, Nipsey Hussle nearly became a meme after cameras panned to his reaction of the fight between Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul. Neighborhood Nip appeared to be getting ready to jump in the middle of the fight while he was sitting courtside. However, that doesn't seem to be the case. The rapper claimed that he wasn't ready to jump in the fight, but he was getting ready to defend himself if the brawl spilled over in his direction.
TMZ recently caught Nipsey Hussle to find out his real reaction to the brawl between Rajan Rondo and Chris Paul during Saturday's game between the Lakers and the Rockets. The rapper revealed that he was most definitely not trying to jump into the brawl on the court, but he was prepared just in case the fight began inching towards him.
"Nah, definitely not. I was really just reacting to the little scuffle," he said. "It looked like, you know, that might spill over to where we was sitting so I was just jumpin' up, making sure it didn't fall towards me. But I got love for a lot of the players from the Rockets as well as the Lakers."
He added, "Harden's my guy. CP, you know what I'm sayin'? A lot of the players I got love for. But nah, I would never jump in an NBA fight. Hell nah."
Nip explained that there's no way in hell that he'll be instigating a fight live on television with a million people watching. Nip's a smart guy so the decision to opt out of scrapping with a bunch of NBA players isn't surprising.
