Ex-NBAer Smush Parker punches out 16 y.o. reality star during pick-up game: Report

The basketball playing son of a reality show couple might be getting a little less face time after getting punched in the jaw by former NBA player Smush Parker during a pick-up game the other day.

Wolfgang Novogratz — the 16-year-old son of HGTV stars Robert and Cortney Novogratz — got smushed after showing up the former Lakers guard at Basketball City — the popular westside Manhattan basketball facility, reported Page Six of the N.Y. Post.

The 32-year-old Parker punched the smaller Wolfie — a 6'2", 185 pound star at Brooklyn’s Poly Prep High School, where Chicago Bull Joakim Noah played — after fouling the former Fordham star — who is two inches bigger and a lot heavier. 

The teenager was taken to the hospital.



“Wolfie scored back-to-back baskets on Smush,” said a source. “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.”

Wolfgang — already recruited by some colleges — is the eldest of seven children who were featured on Bravo’s “9 by Design” and he has appeared in “Home by Novogratz,” the HGTV show where his parents design a new house or apartment on each episode.

Parker, who had two good seasons with the Lakers under Phil Jackson, was cut by the Miami Heat in 2008 after getting into a fight with a parking attendant.

“Wolfie did not pass out and tried to keep playing, but he had to sit down. For the sake of safety, he went to the hospital to be checked out, and he was fine,” said the source. “He declined to press charges.”

Parker could not be reached for comment.

  2. The kid is not a Jew, his fathers parents are from Germany, but they're Lutheran. The mother's family is from Denmark, and Christian.
