Metta: I don’t shake substitutes’ hands
2012 NBA playoffs — Los Angeles Lakers' Metta World Peace not planning to acknowledge James Harden http://t.co/uDRLSUbg

When the Lakers take on the Thunder in tonight’s Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals, don’t expect Metta World Peace to be making any sort of amends with James Harden, the victim of his haymaking elbow shot last month.
Harden was diagnosed with a concussion as a result of the blow and World Peace was slapped on the wrist with a seven-game suspension.
World Peace has yet to contact Harden directly and doesn’t plan to even acknowledge the Thunder’s versatile wing player and NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year on the court before Game 1 on Monday.
Some guys clearly just do not get it.
"I don't shake substitutes' hands." -Metta World Peace (Ron Artest). Way to live out your name, buddy #NoOneisTooGoodtobenice

Metta Tru Warier Artest World Peace is a nutjob. Don't be shocked when he catches Harden with another celebratory haymaker.
