Metta World Peace decks James Harden with elbow

Metta World Peace has been watching too much UFC fight last night to the extent of mimicking Jon Jones killer elbows. In an Earth Day game of Los Angeles Lakers vs Oklahoma City Thunder, Metta World Peace let his elbow do the talking after he hit James Harden hard to the floor.

Metta World Peace has been ejected by the referee for fragrant foul after elbowing Oklahoma City's James Harden in the head. In a video above, World Peace had just dunked the ball in a fast break, then bumps into James Harden. It seems the Lakers forward exagerated his dunk celebration gestures throwing wild elbows actually hitting Harden that knocks him on the floor.

He clearly threw his left elbow right over the back of Harden's head. The hit was so hard that Harden dropped on the floor for a minute . It is not known yet if World Peace will be suspended due to incident. It seems he wolud be suspended once the NBA reviewed the tapes, but we don't know how many days.

World Peace was publicly known as Ron Artest until legally changing his name in September 2011 last year. The reason for changing his name to World Peace maybe to spread peace but right now its' not actually working. Ron Artest gained a reputation as one of the NBA's prime defensive player but also know for making a lot of trouble resulting to numerous suspensions from the NBA. Artest was one of the instigator in the famous Pacers–Pistons brawl, which resulted to suspension for one season.

Lakers going to the playoffs without Metta World Peace would difinitely hurt their chances of winning.

Lakers goes on to beat the Thunders 114-106 in that game.
