Metta World Peace admits he’s having trouble with the ladies since the elbow incident.
According to the Los Angeles Laker star, women aren’t giving him the time of day. He claims women are keeping a distance because of the infamous elbow. Metta World Peace AKA Ron Artest is on a seven-game suspension for a violent elbow to the head of Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden.
His elbow gave Harden a concussion. He missed the last two games of the Thunder’s regular season but is expected to play in Game 1 vs. the Dallas Mavericks today (Saturday). He’s had plenty of Twitter rants since his suspension but the most noteworthy one has to be about women. World Peace tweeted:
