My quick research shows Ron Artest/Metta World Peace has been suspended 14 times in 14-year career for 117 regular-season and playoff games.



117 games. C'mon man.

Don't care. Keep your hands down and stop trying to elbow/punch people in the neck/jaw area, and you'll be fine.

Well, Metta did go to the face, I can see why he's being suspended, not being biased on this

You forgot to use green color on your txt.
lol @ the league for doing this. Celtics better watch out for Artest, he's gonna body-rape the [expletive] out of their guys.

Not surprising. Even assuming it is a borderline call to suspend (and I dont think it is), guys like MWP have a reputation which the team knew when they signed him. You have to accept the whole package, reputaion and all.

Absolute BULL[expletive] suspension. I guess matt barnes can grab Greg stiemsmas neck and throw him to the ground and it's only 1 game but Ron can get I'n a little tangle and not even hit a guy but get 1 game. Soft ass league. Don't give me that reputation bull[expletive] either. Someone has to step up tonight I'n his absence

You'll be missing his threes and driving when its Ebanks doing it instead.

Be careful what u wish for, the alternative may be worse.

Wait really? It looked like Metta barely scraped the dude.... alright, sit down Metta. =/

Reputation suspension?

I mean he could have very well struck Knight as that's what the referees decided and what Knight said after the game but if he did in fact do this, why wasn't he tossed from the Detroit game? Those are things that don't make sense.



definitely a rep suspension. Add in the fact that he was at The Palace again.

Lakers should just sit him on any future games that they play at that arena.

You nean like Dragic who legitimately tried to kick Bogut in his surgically repaired leg coming off injury?

Haven't read or heard anything about the NBA suspending him. And he went after another player coming off injury and tried to kick them where they were injured.
