It's been 20 days since Metta World Peace last donned a Lakers jersey and it seemed like the time away from competitive basketball didn't hurt his game one bit. With 15 points and 5 rebounds, Metta played a huge role in getting L.A. into the next round against Oklahoma City. And of course, all that time away hasn't hurt World Peace's ability to give a really entertaining post-game interview, complete with a random shout-out to Queensbridge.
But the Lakers forward wasn't done there. When ESPN's Chris Palmer asked about the prospect of shaking James Harden's hand in the upcoming series, Metta had an interesting response.
Metta on whether he'll shake James Harden's hand: "I don't shake subs hands." Fair enough.â€” chris palmer (@ESPNChrisPalmer) May 13, 2012
Hey, at least World Peace isn't holding a grudge over the whole elbow-to-the-dome situation, right?
