New York Knicks forward Cleanthony Early was shot in the leg and robbed of two chains early this morning (December 30), according to ESPN. Early was leaving a strip club with his girlfriend when their Uber was surrounded by vehicles. As many as six men got out of the cars and demanded the 24-year-old's possessions, including the gold caps on his teeth.
