Metta World Peace declines to apologize to James Harden on Conan

“I’m retro,” the player formerly known as Ron Artest said last night in explaining his style of play.

He also said he had not yet called James Harden to apologize for the elbow to the head that gave Harden a concussion, because he and Harden may yet meet again in the playoffs, and it would be a violation of competitors’ etiquette to pick up the phone right now.

World Peace also declined to comment on the length of his suspension — seven games. He will miss Game 1 of the Lakers’ second-round series (which would be against the Thunder, with Metta making his return in Game 2 at OKC) if Los Angeles is able to knock off the Denver Nuggets in five games.
