Metta World Peace explains ‘unintentional’ elbow to James Harden’s head (Video)

After the Lakers’ double-overtime victory over the Thunder on Sunday, Metta World Peace spoke to reporters about the elbow to James Harden‘s head for which he was ejected shortly before halftime.

“I just dunked on Durant and Ibaka and I got real emotional, real excited,” World Peace said. “It’s unfortunate James had to get hit with an unintentional elbow. I hope he’s OK. The Thunder, they’re playing for a championship this year, so I really hope he’s OK. I apologize to the Thunder and to James Harden. Such a great game, and it’s unfortunate so much emotion was going on at that time.”

Unintentional? Is there anybody besides Ndamukong Suh who seriously believes that was an unintentional elbow?

In case you missed what happened, here’s video of the incident:

Harden suffered a concussion from the blow and did not return to the game. World Peace faces a likely suspension.
