What can I say... As one of my former bosses used to say, "Sometimes even a blind squirrel can find a nut."
Metta World Peace (formerly known as Ron Artest before being suspended from the NBA for a year for taking a fight up into the stands) was being his normal thuggish self while celebrating a shot. So... he decided he'd let an elbow fly.
Take a look at the replay. He couldn't have landed a better shot if he tried...... Metta World Peace decks James Harden with elbow *
FYI, this resulted in a concussion. Under new NBA rules, James Harden won't be able to play again before undergoing extensive testing.
Ponder how a trained Uechika could set up a shot like that - without of course it being a cheapshot. (Don't ask me what I really think...) It's all about bad-breath-range infighting. It's also about positioning - something that escapes the vast majority of toe-to-toe fighters and sport fighters.
