Shirtless Israeli Basketball Schmo that interrupted Nate Robinson: “F*** you, Steph Curry!”

It turns out that this isn’t the first pro baller that this shirtless Israeli schmo has challenged. Here he is issuing a challenge to Hapoel Jerusalem’s Donta Smith and saying “Happy New Year, Motherf*cker!”

אז מי זה רז ניסים כהן שקורא לכל שחקני ליגת העל לפגוש אותו בקרב אחד על אחד ואפילו הציע לדונטה סמית’ 5,000 דולר במזומן אם הוא ינצח אותו? עוד שעה ככה נסגור לכם ת’פינה

Oh, and there’s more.

So who is the shirtless Israeli basketball schmo? He’s 31-year-old Raz Nisim Cohen and he played briefly for a second-division team in the Israeli league. Based on what I’ve seen from these videos though he should probably be starting for the Sixers. Raz is coming at you, Steph!
