University Of Kentucky’s Anthony Davis and Oklahoma City Thunder’s James Harden have been added to USA Basketball’s list for the upcoming 2012 London Olympics. They are the first of a 12 man squad to be announced later this month.
Our special guest this week is Josh of Rantsports.com/courtcrusades/ Be sure to check out this great blog which covers everything NBA. Thanks again for being a part of the Roundtable Josh.
1. During the Lakers double over time win against the Thunder on Monday, Metta World Peace was ejected for a flagrant elbow to James Harden. Was MWP intentionally attacking him, or was Harden simply caught in the line of fire? What, if any, should World Peace’s penalty be? Does the league need to make an example of him?
I believe it was done intentionally, as to why? I have no idea, it was very strange. You could tell by the way his arm followed through that it was intended to connect. Elbows are dangerous, and obviously not welcome in the game. The NBA will be suspending him for sure and wouldn’t be surprised if they force him to sit out the first round of the Playoffs. Additionally a fine would not be too harsh either. I like World Peace, but he just obviously as anger issues. I hope he can control it, he doesn’t have too long left of his career and i’m pretty sure he’ll always be tagged for his crazy anger moments.
