Looks like Metta World Peace is getting back to his old “Ron Artest” ways.

After celebrating a monster dunk, the Los Angeles Lakers star aggressively elbowed James Harden from the Oklahoma City Thunder in the face last night during the first half of the Lakers’ 114-106 double-overtime victory.

World Peace was immediately ejected from the game, and officials say that he could face suspension.

Metta claims that it was totally accidental, but from the looks of it …. we beg to differ!

Watch below:

We’re not buying it Metta….you didn’t even look back to make sure Harden was okay. C’mon son!!

Do you think Metta World Peace elbowed James Harden on purpose … or was it an accident?
