Metta World Peace takes James Harden down during blowout (Video)
You didn’t really think this was over, did you? During the introductions before Game 1 of the Thunder-Lakers series on Monday night, the Oklahoma City crowd rained boos down on Metta World Peace. In fact, the boos continued throughout the entire game and were pretty close to constant. Maybe it took its toll on Metta, or maybe he just genuinely doesn’t like James Harden for whatever reason. He did, after all, say he was not going to shake his hand and make amends for the atomic elbow he dropped on Harden during the regular season.
As you can see from the video above that Outside the Boxscore shared with us, World Peace and Harden got tangled up early in the fourth quarter on Monday night as Harden was boxing Metta out. What started out as a normal basketball play quickly turned into World Peace’s elbow once again in the side of Harden’s head and Harden being dragged to the ground. World Peace acted stunned about the call, but he knows exactly what he did. Things can only get uglier from here.
