Tyler Hansbrough, the wide-eyed Toronto Raptors player and North Carolina alum known as “Psycho T” for his crazed style of play and willingness to confront other NBA players, got tangled up with a New York Knicks player during an exhibition game on Monday.
As soon as he saw that it was Metta World Peace, he immediately wanted no piece of arguably the most dangerous and unstable player in the NBA.
“My bad, bro,” Hansbrough immediately says when he finds out he had been tangled up with the player formerly known as Ron Artest, who once went into the stands to brawl with fans at Detroit when he was with the Indiana Pacers, and has viciously elbowed, wrestled, and tackled NBA players.
Artest later tweeted to Hansbrough after the incident: “Tyler Hansbrough, dont listen to these fools. Keep being s hard nose ball player!!!”
Tyler Hansbrough, dont listen to these fools. Keep being s hard nose ball player!!!
