Metta World Peace came back from his suspension Saturday night in Game 7 as the Los Angeles Lakers faced the Denver Nuggets.

He played great, scoring 15 points after coming back from his infamous elbow on James Harden that caused him to have a seven-game ban.

World Peace said he won't even acknowledge Harden in the next round against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He won't even shake hands with him, or anyone else on OKC.

"I don't shakes substitutes' hands," World Peace said about Harden.

He continued.

"I shake everybody's hand before the game, but Oklahoma City, they don't shake hands," he said. "Only some of them, but I don't think they really shake hands before the game.  Kendrick Perkins and Russell Westbrook don't shake hands either. (Russell) used to shake hands, but now he don't shake hands anymore."

It sure looks like this series already has the drama brought by MWP. Let's see if he will bring the helpful impact he had in Game 7 against Denver.

This series will have a lot of drama and some trash talking. You will always have the drama with World Peace.

The Lakers and the Thunder kick off their series Monday in Oklahoma City.
