Metta World Peace has received a seven game suspension from the NBA for his vicious elbow hit to James Harden. The LA Lakers small forward over-celebrated his dunk against in Sunday afternoon’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder which led to Harden receiving hitting the floor and suffering from a concussion.
Even though the player, formally known as Ron Artest, apologised via Twitter (see below) the NBA decided to come down hard which will mean serving his 10th suspension in the past decade. World Peace will not only miss the next seven games, including Thursday’s game against the Kings and the possible 6-games of post-season, but he will also incur the loss of pay and won’t be allowed in the arena.
