James Harden played poorly in Oklahoma City’s loss to the Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Sunday, and rival Metta World Peace was on Twitter antagonizing him. Keep in mind Metta tweeted that Harden would probably hit a “huge shot” moments after he insulted him via Twitter, but it was the following tweet that people are going to be talking about.
No brain All beard

World Peace sent that tweet in the final minute of the game when Harden committed a foul on LeBron James. With Oklahoma City trailing by three, the foul put LeBron at the free throw line where he hit one of two and gave the Heat a four-point lead. Metta is right about it not being a smart play. Harden also went 2-for-10 from the field including 0-for-4 from beyond the arc. Game 3 was hardly memorable for the man whose beard has become more than famous.
The irony here is that if Harden has lost some brain cells, it’s probably World Peace’s fault. Harden may not be thinking as clearly as he used to since he was cranked in the head with an elbow back in April. The Heat now lead the Finals 2-1, and Harden’s lousy Game 3 was a big reason why. That being said, World Peace is still the one watching from home on the couch.
