Imagine you've just committed the most vicious flagrant foul of the NBA season. You elbowed a rival around his jawline and gave him a concussion. You were thrown out of the game, but apologized afterwards.
Your next move probably wouldn't be to take things to Twitter.
But you're not Metta World Peace.
Hours after his controversial dunk celebration/assault of James Harden, Metta World Peace addressed the incident on Twitter.
His first tweet came at 6:51 p.m.:
"Hope James Hardin is ok... I remember when I hit by Marc Gasol the same way.. I was spitting up blood and a headache during the game..."
Some notes on this tweet:
1. World Peace spelled Harden's name wrong. Are you serious?
2. World Peace (back in the Ron Artest days) was hit in the nose by Marc Gasol on Feb. 7, 2011. Gasol was called for a foul (not a flagrant) and World Peace had a bloody nose. Although he said after the game he could not remember the injury, he played in the fourth quarter and hit a clutch three-pointer in a win. "I just kept going," World Peace said after that game. "Once I got my head cleared, [I] toughened up a little bit and got out there and played basketball. You do what it takes to win."
One hour later World Peace decided to see what the fuss was all about.Full Story >>
