"During that play, I just dunked on Durant and Ibaka. I got real emotional, real excited," World Peace said after the Lakers' 114-106 double overtime victory Sunday over the Oklahoma City Thunder. "It's unfortunate that James had to get hit with an unintentional elbow. I hope he's OK. The Thunder. they're playing for a championship this year. I really hope he's OK and I apologize to the Thunder and to James Harden. It was such a great game. It was unfortunate so much emotion was going on at that time. That's it for today."

Thats such BS. first of all he didnt dunk on durant and ibaka he was in front of them on the fast break. its clear that when you watch it in slo-mo he felt harden bump him and gave an intentional elbow. Before harden ran into him he was beating his chest. Who "celebrates" by throwing an elbow up high with massive force.

He gave him a freaking concussion and Harden is out for the last few games of the season.

We all know he's lying but he's doing a solid job at TRYING to cover it up, lol.

He even was tweeting about it

What an absolute liar. He meant to deck Harden; he didn't even look back to see what he had hit after the elbow was thrown, showing that he knew perfectly well what he was doing. Harden wasn't trying to get up in his face either; he was coming back and angling up to receive the inbounds play. He should be out for a good part of the playoffs.

Yeah, I've seen. Pathetic.

Once again ruining the Lakers image. Even Magic was disappointed.

He Should've Stayed Where He Was Instead Of Moving Left & Getting In Crazy Ron's Way Then..Ahaha

Everybody Know That Guy Ain't Right In The Head...When He In That Zone, LEAVE HIM ALONE...

Harden Bumped Him To Slow Him Down A Bit So He Could Get The Inbounds Pass & Move The Offense Alone With Metta Behind...Metta Threw A Bow & Cleared The Path....Haha

Was It Over The Top? Yes...Did I Enjoy It? Yes....Did I Expect It? Hell Yeah I Expected It...

I Don't Get Why People Just Don't Understand...THIS NUGGA IS CRAZY!!! IT'S NOT AN ACT..Ahaha..Remember He Said When He Retires From The NBA He Wants To Be An NFL Player/UFC Fighter/Boxer...THAT MEANS HE WANTS TO [expletive deleted] PEOPLE UP...Ahaha

Cool story bro. Because Metta is a retard, we should all get out of his way. It's completely unreasonable to expect someone to behave themselves in a normal fashion. If you apparently enjoyed it, maybe you should cop a few elbows to the head, and see how much you like it.

I've Caught Plenty Of Elbows...If U've Ever Played On The Blacktop @ The Park Or In The Hood Then U're Probably USED TO IT...

Now MWP Being So Much Stronger Than Harden Makes It Worse I Guess....But I'm Used To Elbows...To The Face/Neck/Ribs/Chest...Ahaha

Which Is Probably Why I'm Not In A Frenzy Like Everyone Else....

Dwyane Wade Gave Kobe A Concussion & Broken Nose With An EXCESSIVELY Hard Foul...In Which He Said He Took A Hard Foul So He Gave One Back...In An All-Star Game...Then When The Media Started Buzzing About It...He Said It Was An Accident & Wasn't Intentional Just Like Artest Did...

But U Didn't Hear Us Saying "DWYANE WADE SHOULD BE SUSPENDED FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR!" Or "DWYANE WADE SHOULD BE KICKED OUT OF THE LEAGUE!"...We Said "I Hope Matt Barnes Or Ron Artest Fucks Wade Up"...Haha

Regardless This Is Nothing New...

Dwight Been Throwing Bows & Sneaking In Shots For Years....But I Don't Remember Dwight Getting Ejected Or Suspended In Games For It Except Dalembert...

Might Be Some More...But That's The Only One I Remember...Haha

We all know that Dwight is dirty and that he plays a lot with his elbows but that has nothing to do with Artest's NASTY elbow to Harden.

He should be suspended for at least the first series.

First Off..,.I'm Not U Or Whatever SOFT Background U From...If One Elbow To The Head Shatters Your World Then I'm Sorry...Haha...I Done Got Hit In The Head With Bats, Bottles & Even That Lil' Marble Stump @ The Bottom Of Trophies...I Lived Through It All Without Any Permanent Damage...

2nd...The Reason That Elbow Hurt Harden So Much Is Because Ron Caught Him In The Ear...Which Means That Shih Was Gone Be Ringing In His Head For Longer Than It Would If He Actually Caught 'Em In The Face Or Somewhere Else In The Head...

3rd...Soft Pillows? Dwight Put The PEOPLE'S ELBOW On Glen Davis & The Scorpion Death Drop On Pierce (But With An Elbow)...Haha

4th...U Assume I'm Exaggerating Because Of What U're Not Capable Of Doing Or Because U Think Metta Cocking Back & Throwing A Bow Is Worse Than Dwight Howard Dropping From The Sky With One To A Player's Head?

Who Cares? Man Up...Haha...I Could've Swore That Harden Got Up & Walked Off The Court...& Walked Back To It As Well..Didn't Play & Had A Nagging Headache I'm Sure But Who's Overexaggerating? I Don't Remember No Medical Staff Having To Escort Harden Off The Court On A Stretcher Or Anything....Haha

He Had As They Said "Concussion-LIKE Symptoms"

Haha Dwight's were more unintentional than anything on the Pierce and Glen Davis one.

He was just trying to play ball,second I was wrong for judging you and you are too but some of the other stuff you post on here just gets me frustrated so I take it out on one post.Third I have to see to believe so I don't care what the hell you got hit by because I don't believe it.Lastly that is professional basketball and I just can't grasp how stupid someone would have to be to elbow somebody like that.He didn't even turn around and ppl say it was unintentional but when Westbrook ran up on him he squared up like he was gonna fight.

Haha bro you're SO hood rich. I've played Rugby most of my life, and until a few years ago, I was getting paid to do it. Nothing crazy high-level, but I was good. Trust me when I say I know more about physical contact than you ever will. You raise an excellent point, there are many elbows thrown in "blacktop" basketball, but correct me if I'm wrong; these guys are professional athletes, and should conduct themselves in a professional manner. Elbowing someone in the side of the head when they aren't even looking at you is about as cool as punching someone on the street in the back of the head. Obviously a few of those supposed blows to the head have done more damage than you think.
