Toronto Raptors forward Tyler Hansbrough is known as “Psycho T”. Not anymore, after he folded in front of the real-crazy Metta World Peace, forward of the New York Knicks in preseason game at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
NBA: Preseason-New York Knicks at Toronto Raptors
The video (courtesy of vine user netw3rk) is pretty much self-explanatory:
And of course, it’s a classic Ron Artest World Peace that he won’t leave it at that. Tweeting some final last words about the incident.
What a fun game tonight. Young boys played well. Toronto played well also. Tough group. Looking forward to a fun NBA season. — Metta World Peace (@MettaWorldPeace) October 22, 2013
There’s some hint of sarcasm in using the word “tough” in that tweet but he pushed the envelope further, with real sarcasm in his very next tweet:
Tyler Hansbrough is a tough kid . Stop be silly people!!! He is going to be a champ one day. Keep being tough Tyler!!

In other news, which is actually the game at hand where this little skirmish happened, the Raptors defeated the Knicks in double-overtime, 123 to 120, led by DeMar Derozan's 21 points and 7 rebounds.
World Peace finished with 16 points and 6 rebounds for the Knicks, while the player formerly known as "Psycho T" ended up with 10 markers and 7 caroms.
