Has World Peace ever been booed so harshly before?
Metta World Peace, that is.
After he delivered that brutal elbow to Sixth Man of the Year James Harden's head and gave him a concussion, the Oklahoma City Thunder faithful are not fans of World Peace. They let him know it prior to the Game 1 tipoff on their court, too.
Check out the chilly reception he received from the Chesapeake Energy Arena crowd when he was shown on the Jumbotron during pregame warmups for their Western Conference semifinals opener.
Of course, a little booing isn't going to hurt World Peace. This is the guy who saw a player get stabbed and killed with a table leg over a scoring dispute during a YMCA tournament in New York. Words are not going to affect him.
In a pregame interview on TNT, he said he's been looking forward to hitting the court in Oklahoma City and that the crowd's reception would "be fun."
