(CBS) Forget peace, Metta World Peace is going to do what he wants to do.

As the Lakers prepare to take on the Thunder in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, World Peace said he has no plans to shake the hand of James Harden, who he viciously elbowed in the face to receive a seven-game suspension.

“I don’t shake substitutes’ hands,” World Peace said.

“I used to go and shake hands,” World Peace said. “I’ve been playing against Kendrick forever. Kendrick, he’ll never shake your hand so I’d have to go and find Kendrick and shake his hand. In Boston, every game I’d have to go to him and say, ‘Hey,’ and then tap him on the butt. He don’t touch my hand. But, I’m getting tired of making that walk.”
