Thabo to sue NYC for $50,000,000

Saying he is damaged for good, Thabo Sefolosha, former Oklahoma City Thunder and current Atlanta Hawk of the NBA, is bring suit against New York City for damages that have totaled $50 million dollars.


Though Sefolosha is practicing for the upcoming season, the NBA player who beat criminal charges of resisting arrest in a donnybrook outside a nightclub in lower Manhattan will take NYC to court, along with the eight cops that caused serious bodily injury for what he claims are “permanent” injuries.


The veteran shooting guard has been looking great in practice, especially in his dunking, but says his “physical damages are permanent in nature and continuing into the future,” according to the notice of claim filed with the city’s comptroller.


Alex Spior, Sefolosha’s defense lawyer,  said “the player’s exceptional performance on the court doesn’t mean he wasn’t permanently injured.
