Yes, you read the title correctly.  After James Harden was knocked senseless with an elbow by Metta World Peace on April 22nd, Harden returned the favor on Wednesday night.  Kind of.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace nailed Oklahoma City Thunder forward James Harden with a vicious elbow in a game on April 22nd (video below).  The Lakers ended up winning the game 114-106 in double overtime.  Metta World Peace was suspended for seven games by the league for throwing the elbow. 

A lot was made of Metta World Peace’s elbow to James Harden’s head.  We had plenty of conversation on “The Noe Show” about the incident.  I thought the length of the suspension was appropriate.  Although I was anticipating a longer suspension, I felt like the league got it right. 

James Harden accidentally hit Metta World Peace with an inadvertent elbow on Wednesday night.  Harden used a behind-the-back dribble to elude World Peace.  While Harden was cutting to the right, he swung his left elbow to balance himself.  The elbow caught World Peace in his face.  There are a lot of people who think this elbow was, at the very least, poetic justice.  If nothing else, it’s strangely ironic.
