Here’s an odd story! Former UCLA basketball star Reeves Nelson is suing Sports Illustrated for $10 million for claiming he urinated on a teammate’s bed.
According to Nelson’s lawsuit, the article claimed he was not punished after fighting with multiple teammates and intentionally injuring them during practice. The S.I. article also claims Nelson “urinated on [a teammate’s] bed and clothes” — purely as revenge for the player allegedly squealing about a New Year’s Eve party.
But Nelson’s high-powered entertainment lawyer Keith Fink says they can prove Dohrmann “recklessly and negligently failed to investigate the claims in the article.” The lawsuit includes declarations from 18 UCLA players and ex-players who deny every allegation about Nelson.
Hmmmm… shouldn’t the teammate he peed on be the one suing?
I hope it comes out that Reeves Nelson DID piss on those clothes. That was the only entertaining part of the story.

I forget did Reeves Nelson piss on the kid who is now at BYU or just call him concussion boy?

Our take: People need to stop pissing on, um…other people.
