James Harden Talks about the World Peace Elbow

James Harden of the Oklahoma City Thunder has taken some days off after Metta World Peace elbowed him in the head, and according to the Daily Thunder, he is feeling much better.

“I’m doing good, had a couple days working out getting my groove back, feel pretty good,” said Harden.

Harden said he has been doing whatever it takes to get back on the court and wants to do everything he can to help this Thunder team. Harden praised the Thunder coaching staff for its effort and had full trust in its abilities.

As for his reaction to Metta World Peace and whether or not the elbow was intentional, Harden said, “I don’t know.” He refused to comment on his attitude towards the seven-game suspension and avoided the question.

The Thunder will play the Dallas Mavericks in the opening round, a rematch of last year’s Western Conference Finals.  Harden should be able to play in the series and if the Thunder end up beating the Mavs, the Lakers may see him in the second round.

    I hope one day both Harden and MWP can look past this and just leave it all on the court.

    I’ll be glad when everyone isn’t out for MWP’s blood and just leave him be. 

    Matt Whiner of NBA TV said he had a “laundry list” of offenses. Really? I bet no one in the NBA could rattle off more than 2 and the first would be the infamous brawl and this one.

    Rasheed Wallace usually set the record each season for the most technical fouls. Barkely used to slap people in the back of the head, flip the bird to refs, all sorts of crap and now he’s celebrated as an NBA ambassador. Garnett’s favorite word to everyone he shoots/dunks over is “motherf…”. Shaq said that when he threw elbows the intent was never malicious. When you’re 10 feet tall and 400lbs EVERY elbow you throw is inherently malicious.  

    I could go on and on and yet MWP/Artest will always be regarded as a mindless, dangerous thug because of a fight in the stands and a very unfortunate elbow.

    Bottom line, if Harden hadn’t walked directly into MWP’s path and he were 4 inches taller we wouldn’t be having this conversation. Let me be clear, I’m not excusing or condoning what MWP did because the foul was incredibly brutal, but that doesn’t automatically make him a menace to society. 

    Go Lakers.

    You can clearly see Harden walk into MWP with laft shoulder leaned in and right arm up, almost like he was in a defensive stance before he even got to MWP!!!!  Hmmmmm……!!!!
