Metta World Peace, the Los Angeles Lakers small-forward who was suspended seven games for delivering an elbow to the head of Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden during a game at the end of the 2011-12 regular season, tweeted on Sunday night that Harden is “no brain all beard.”

The tweet came minutes after Harden picked up a blocking foul on LeBron James at half-court, as the Heat were up 88-85 with 16 seconds left in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Harden helped lead his Oklahoma City Thunder over Peace and the Los Angeles Lakers in five games during the 2012 Western Conference semifinals in May. Assuming both players remain with their respective teams through the NBA off-season, Harden and Peace will square off against each other three more times next season.
