The Elbow heard around the league ended up costing Metta World Peace an ejection, most likely a fine and without a doubt a Suspension. The thing that will be hard to decide here is whether the suspension deemed is justifiable. I understand that concussions are a serious thing. I'd say MWP gets suspended for the last game of the Season and the first two games of the first round of the playoffs. Luckily Harden walked off the court without any medical help like a stretcher or something of that sort. So that was a good sign. You hate to see anyone get hurt in sports. I don't know what MWP was thinking...Maybe he didn't think he would've hit harden with so much force but whatever the case may be, it happened, it was terrible, Now give him the punishment and lets get on with the rest of the season. By the way, this event totally overshadowed the Great Comeback by the Lakers. Overcame a 18 Point deficit to win it in double Over Time. Great Game.
