The NBA has suspended
Ron Artest Metta World Peace for seven games for this vicious and deliberate elbow to the head of Oklahoma City’s James Harden. So Peace will sit out the regular season finale (Sacramento) and then the first six games of LA’s first round series against Denver or Dallas.
Harden? He’s got a brain injury.
Harden has a brain injury. The impact of a meaty, maniacal dude smashing his elbow into the soft spot just behind Harden’s ear jarred his brain, banging it around his skull and bruising it who knows where.
The return date of the NBA’s best sixth man is unknown. Without him, Oklahoma City won’t be able to win a title.
