Video: Metta World Peace Claims Elbow to James Harden’s Head Was An Accident – Do You Believe Him?

Sunday’s marquee NBA matchup featured the Lakers hosting the Thunder in a game that was ultimately won by the Lakers in double overtime.

However, the main story of the game had to do with a vicious elbow from Metta World Peace to the head of James Harden.

The video below shows how truly vicious this elbow was.

From this video it looks clear that World Peace had intent when he swung his elbow. (Cue all the jokes about the irony of his last name.)

The former Ron Artest was ejected from the game and will likely face a suspension that could even last into the playoffs. This writers believes that is exactly what should happen.

World Peace came to his own defense on his personal Twitter account, sending out two tweets. The first tweet reads “Hope James Hardin is ok… I remember when I hit by Marc Gasol the same way.. I was spitting up blood and a headache during the game…”.

World Peace seems to think that he did nothing wrong at all, which is evident in his second tweet which reads: “I just watched the replay again….. Oooo.. My celebration of the dunk really was too much… Didn’t even see James ….. Omg… Looks bad”.

Citing his celebration of the dunk as the reason for the elbow to Harden’s head is not very believable.

He pounded his chest, which is normal celebration, but then he reared back and swung his elbow.

Also, after he connected with Harden’s head he went on like nothing happened. If it was truly an accident he would have at least seen if Harden was okay and possibly even apologized.

It looks like Ron Artest may be back, and that is definitely not a good thing.

Is it really possible for him to think that he did nothing wrong, and that this was truly an accident?

Do you?

What do you think of the Metta World Peace elbow that connected with James Harden's head?

  1. you can’t get dumb ass out of Ron Artest!!!!! maybe he can change his name again to Mega World Dumbass.

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a awesome job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!

  3. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  4. Anyway, after the bees are gone drink the milk if you need to it will refill your health meter (up to two times, and you can buy refills in the town shop if needed) in the case that those bees got you before you made it to the lake, and you can use it to hold bee larvae for use as fish bait, as well. No hard proof such as the actual weapons or body parts. There’s also a caveat- if he gets in, so does Jake Roberts.

  10. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod.

  21. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  22. Try to alternate layers of green material like grass clippings, and brown material like dried leaves. There is also a possibility of not being able to get help or assistance from them right away when problems occur. BR Taobao company: their username and password appears to have been broke.

  23. Thanks for enabling me to achieve new ideas about computer systems. I also have the belief that one of the best ways to help keep your notebook in primary condition is by using a hard plastic-type material case, or maybe shell, that suits over the top of the computer. These kind of protective gear usually are model precise since they are manufactured to fit perfectly over the natural casing. You can buy them directly from the vendor, or via third party sources if they are readily available for your laptop, however don’t assume all laptop can have a cover on the market. All over again, thanks for your ideas.
