Lakers’ Metta World Peace Suspended Tuesday Against Brooklyn

Somehow, Metta World Peace always seems to get in trouble at the Palace at Auburn Hills. Here’s Marc Stein from ESPN with the latest incident involving the basketball player formerly known as Ron Artest.

Metta World Peace got into it with Brandon Knight in the second quarter of the game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Detroit Pistons. World Peace NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Detroit Pistonsgrabbed Brandon Knight around the neck area while jostling for position. It ended up being called a flagrant foul on World Peace. It also seemed like World Peace got a little jab in there, too.

Here’s what World Peace had to say via ESPN L.A.’s Dave McMenamin’s Sulia:

“He’s a small guy,” World Peace said after the game about the play when the got tangled up with Brandon Knight and called for a flagrant foul 1. “He was trying his hardest to keep me off him. He worked hard, man. That kid, I don’t know where he’s from, I don’t know what school he went to, because he was guarding me and I was crashing the boards. He’s a tough kid, man. He tried to keep me off the glass and he did a good job. That’s all I can say. He’s a tough kid, very great. He’s a tough point guard or shooting guard or whatever he is.”

World Peace had eight points and nine rebounds as the Lakers held on against Detroit, 98-97.

Metta World Peace was known for one of the ugliest NBA incidents ever when he was the central figure of the 2004 brawl at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The incident escalated quickly after a fan threw a beer at him, causing him and other players to go to the stands. World Peace would go on to get suspended for the rest of the season.

He will sit out their game against Brooklyn on Tuesday night. The Lakers will also be without Dwight Howard, who is still nursing that sore shoulder. Coincidentally enough, the Nets were the Lakers’ opponents when head coach Mike D’Antoni made his debut as the Lakers coach.

Metta World Peace is having somewhat of a renaissance season as he is averaging 13.4 points and 5.7 rebounds. He got off to a fast start in terms of shooting behind the arc but has now slowed down to a .349 percentage from three-point land.
