Metta World Peace was called for his first flagrant foul of the season (Flagrant 1) after a tussle with Brandon Knight of the Detroit Pistons on Sunday. In the video, MWP can clearly be seen sneaking in an unnecessary jab to Knight’s face – which the Pistons’ guard wants reviewed by the league.
According to ESPN:
“The play needs to be reviewed because he definitely threw a punch,” Knight told reporters after the game. “It felt like he threw a punch. That’s why I reacted the way I did.
“The play was over and he grabbed me around the neck. If someone grabs you around the neck, you’re not just going to let that happen. You do what you need to get that person off you.”
