Ron Artest Ejected for Elbowing OKC Thunder Player

Today the LA Lakers played against the Oklahoma City Thunder in a NBA game.  I am from Oklahoma City, but I will admit don’t normally watch a lot of basketball. When I heard about Ron Artest elbowing James Hardin, I had to watch the video for this one!

I know who Ron Artest (Metta World Peace) is for two reasons. He was on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and his name change is just plain weird to me! I don’t know much about his NBA skills.

In the video, he does elbow James Hardin! He hits him so hard James falls to the ground and ended up with a concussion from it. I have to admit that I don’t feel like he did it on purpose. It looks to me like he got really excited and out of hand. He even said on Twitter that he didn’t mean to do it.

So what do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below! You can check out my Examiner article for some pics of what happened. Watch it in the video below.

    I think there are accidents, but for the most part these guys know how to control there bodies and prevent contact when they don’t want it to happen.
