Metta World Peace on the Oklahoma City Thunder
the truth hurts. (via foreverla)
“He’s the one guy that I can rely on night in and night out to compete and play hard and play with a sense of urgency and play with no fear. So, I’m looking forward to having him by my side again.”
Ron finished with 15 points, 4 steals and 2 blocks.
He often guarded Andre Miller and Danilo Gallinari. They finished 2-19.
2 … for 19.

Perhaps the only silver lining in the Laker’s Game 5 loss to the Nuggets is the fact that if the Lakers do win Game 6 Metta will be available for the entire OKC series.
It was bad timing for me and then, physically, it was bad timing for Mr. Harden. Who can write up a left-hand dunk and then all of the sudden somebody is right behind you? It’s hard to draw that up and to plan something like that. It was just the worst timing for me. It was a brutal elbow. When I seen it, I was like, ‘Ugh,’ immediately.
Kevin had no chance. Bumped him out of the way, went up, dunked and at that point, I was just way too emotional. It seemed like anger but it was a lot of passion involved. But it was erratic. It was erratic fire, it was erratic passion. It was way too much. Way too much. It definitely wasn’t meant to hit him how I hit him. That’s the best way I could describe those sequence of plays and the erratic passion.
Can magic johnson,jon barry and steven A compare my accidental elbow to the Luis scola face step and the Blake griff take down..? Shaq ,How can u comment on elbows.. What about the punch you threw at brad miller. And the elbows at dikembe and the prizbilla concussion?"

Do you agree with the 7-game suspension for Metta
It basically amounts to 6 games in the playoffs.
