Lakers News: Metta World Peace Out Vs. Nets Due To Suspension


The Los Angeles Lakers will be without Metta World Peace for tonight’s game against the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclay’s Center as a result of a one-game suspension handed out by the NBA according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports via Twitter:

This is World Peace’s first suspension since being suspended by the league for seven games for elbowing James Harden of the Oklahoma City Thunder towards the end of last season.

The supposed punch by World Peace on Brandon Knight was reviewed by the league over the last few days. Knight claimed World Peace had punched him during the game and apparently the league has agreed and will hold out the veteran forward against the Nets.

    why is the man suspended now and he wasn’t ejected form the game in which he allegedly tricked B. Kight isnt that a bit stupid?? cum on now

    WOW if that’s a punch what about the fore arm to the throat of metta? seemed way sketchier than the so called “punch” and “grab around the neck” since when is the back/shoulder area seen as the same as the throat!?!? LOL at the NBA turning into quite the joke league.

    David Stern needed some extra money for valentines day for his wife so he decided to use Ron’s wallet.

    Seriously!? How many brownie points does Knight get for snitching? What a weenie. The flagrant was enough but this little dude goes out to the media to snitch? What a bitch.
