Default Metta World Peace Flagrant 2 Foul on James Harden


Even Magic Johnson said it was 100% intentional. Clearly MWP felt Hardens body before throwing the elbow, and obviously following through too. I think he should get 10+ games to be honest.

Yeah, that's just insane.

Especially considering his history they should just lay down the hammer.

Get this punk away from the game for the rest of the year.

Easy 10 games.
I may even go more.
Looks like he felt the contact, then reacted REAL stupidly.
I wouldn't be surprised if he was still suspended at the start of next season.

I would suspend him 10-15 games. With a caveat that he can not return for the playoffs if the LAL last longer then the suspension. And if they don't then it continues into next season. He's a bird brain.

Yeah, I'd move to 15-20 if not more. He already has a history and WHERE he hit him (in the temple) is incredibly dangerous.

There was intent to injure. I really don't like Ron/MWP

I like how Jeff Van Gundy and Mike Breen started calling him Ron Artest I mean reminiscence or Ron Artest. Definitely a disgrace he knew that Harden was right there from the body contact and no doubt that elbow was on purpose. Not part of his celebration. Just like the NHL Ill assume he would be getting around 5-6 games for trying to injure a player.

And I even think the LA fans were going against Artest too. Starting chanting Harden Harden

Laker fans love thug ball and hurting opponents. Perhaps L.A. needs an NFL football team before an opposing basketball player gets killed?

Listen, a Flagrant 2 and maybe a 2-3 game suspension doesn't portray this incident. Artest might as well of punched Harden in the back of the head as hard as he could.

After seeing that video, I'd give him a 20 game suspension, simply because Artest should've been kicked outta the league long ago, and is on a short leash about violent behavior.

like i said on the other thread, if it were up to me i would suspend him for the rest of the year but david stern has softened up so he will probably get somewhere around a 5 game suspension.

At least 10, and hopefully at least double that. Not that it would serve a purpose. I don't think he acted out of any intent, but rather just lost control of his head long enough to become very dangerous, which just makes him a ticking time bomb as usual as long as he plays the game.

This, along with Bynum's shit, really makes me hate the Lakers more than usual.

I think his suspension should go into the playoffs. Otherwise suspending him for the next 5 games isn't really saying much since it's the last few games of the season.

Any suspension given(above the last reg season game) would go in to the playoffs. I dont think its allowed to have suspensions not be counted towards playoff games and to start next reg season, itd make no sense
