NMA TV on NBA's World Peace Violence

NMA TV on NBA's World Peace Violence

Recently Metta World Peace aka. "Ron Artest" of the LA Lakers reverted back to his violent ways and now is in trouble once again with the NBA. His latest eruption happened in Sunday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. World Peace started celebrating a slam dunk by pounding his chest and then suddenly he viciously elbowed James Harden's head and knocked him to the floorboards. This earned Artest a flagrant foul and a game ejection but, of course, he claimed it was unintentional:
"It was unfortunate that James had to get hit with an unintentional elbow," World Peace said. "I hope he's OK."
However the NBA thinks otherwise and is now deciding on the length of Artest's upcoming suspension. This event is quite controversial with some fans claiming it was an accident and others saying that Artest should be banned from the NBA altogether. Either way this foul/accident is very disappointing for the NBA as this current season has seen an increase in violence on the court overall.

Not missing a beat, Taiwan's News Media Animation TV just weighed in on this whole mess with a very funny 3D animation news video:
