2012 NBA Playoffs: James Harden Gets Revenge, Elbows Metta World Peace (Video)


Metta World Peace made one of the most costly decisions of this NBA season when he elbowed James Harden back in late April.

Back from his seven-game suspension, World Peace showed no sympathy for the Oklahoma City Thunder guard, saying that he won't shake his hand because he is a substitute.

During Game 2 between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Thunder on Wednesday night, Harden got some payback on the forward. In the first quarter with three minutes remaining, Harden tried to get past World Peace by making a move and accidentally elbowing him.

Revenge?

  1. I love how Ronnie throws his head back after a short pause. Usually when you get elbowed hard your head whips back immediately. The worst part of the game though was when ronnie close line tackles Collison into Harden knocking them both down with no foul call, picking the ball up while they are grounded and getting the foul call on his shot. REALLY. Not complaining cause the thunder won a very physical game, but the ref calls made it seem like an away game.

  2. Metta was reaching for the steal and Harden was bring his arm forward from behind his back. Unlike Metta, James Harden plays with class. I see no malice in what Harden did and plenty of acting in Whirled Peas reaction.
