Metta World Peace not planning to shake James Harden’s hand

The Lakers moved on to face the Thunder after beating the Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs, but don’t expect too many hugs and kisses to be exchanged between the squads. Monday’s Thunder-Lakers game will mark the first time Metta World Peace faces James Harden since giving him a concussion with an elbow to the head last month. World Peace was asked after Saturday’s Game 7 win if he plans to shake Harden’s hand, and he didn’t exactly offer an olive branch.

Oh yeah, it is on. Even though it’s just a second round series, this will feel like an NBA Finals matchup. I have the Thunder winning it, hopefully in less than seven for their sake.

    Let’s just drop this “Metta World Peace” crap.  He is still Ron Artest, through and through, and his stupid comment proves it.

    Why the hell would he shake his hand? I respect his comment. We are in the PLAYOFFS. He served his suspension, lets move on. If Harden wants revenge, then drop buckets on his head.
