Metta World Peace Delivers A Not-So-Peaceful Elbow To James Harden’s Head (Video)

metta world peace elbows james hardenWhen asked prior to the start of the 2011-12 NBA season about how his teammates have dealt with him changing his name to “Metta World Peace,” Ron Artest responded by talking about how thankful he is that Jesus Christ did not let him lose his teeth when he was 20 years old.

Strangely enough, Artest doesn’t seem to be equally thankful that James Harden still has his teeth at the age of 22, as he attempted to dislodge them from his mouth with a vicious elbow during yesterday’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Despite his claim that the elbow was unintentional and simply a part of his post-dunk celebration, Artest was assessed a flagrant two foul and was ejected from the game.  As for Harden, he was taken to the locker room for evaluation and did not return.

Here is a look at Metta World Peace’s nasty elbow that should earn him a rather lengthy suspension.
