What was Harden doing? Get the **** out of the way.
1. Artest doesn't throw elbows and walk away, he'll let you know it was meant for you
2. Watch the follow through, he did the same thing with his opposite hand before that, it was a celebration
3. Murder is Murder is Murder is Murder, thats a horrible analogy
^^I saw the game and saw him telling the Refs it was unintentional but he's still going to get suspended and I think it'll be a long one because if I was the league I want to make this an example to not throw elbows that might cause a serious injury.
I think he did it on purpose bcuz he felt harden near him when he was hype. So he kinda wanted to push off bump him. He just had a moment, I don't think he meant to connect like that though. *****s is gonna be shook in the playoffs when he comes back tho.
It was intentional. I'm getting annoyed at hearing commentators whining for flagrants needing to be called, because a lot of them are players sending a message while still trying to make a basketball play. This is just stupid. The league has gotten soft, but this has nothing to do with the game at all, just Artest being an idiot.
Those of you who think it was unintentional don't be so naive.. they bumped eachother and arrest threw the elbow to hurt him. Disgusting.. he shouldn't be allowed to play the rest of this year... To those glorifying this behavior if you are older than 21 years old u need a reality check
There is no place in professional sports (except MMA) for this type of hit. Someone could get killed with a blow like that. Artest/MWP should be removed from the NBA so he does not kill a player in the future.
If someone got hit like that in the neck or spine, it could easily be paralysis or death. This is a basketball game, not a street fight.
Ι didn't have a problem with Artest before that.I don't justify but i can understand losing control when someone throws a beer on you!I can understand players getting into a fight in the heat of the moment!
But that was ****ed up!Harden wasn't expecting that.He wasn't even looking to his direction.
And then trying to find excuses.''I was doing my King Kong thing'' and bull****.You know what you did.Just take it like a man.
