Proof after the jump.
Guess he is… just sent it to ot dunking over world peace.
Who the HELL is grabbin at mah OH MY GOD SORRY MR. WORLD PEACE!!
I am hating liking Hansbsororougough.
It’s really f’ing me up because I used to despise him.
you will become accustomed to TYLER eventually if you are a true RAPTORS fan. he’s a great kid that’s beloved by his fans and has done many positive and selfless things in indy; last year, he was a finalist in support of the community there. yet, if it causes severe symtoms, don’t like him. he’s got enough of us fans to compensate for the inevitable haters. btw, GO RAPTORS!
Haha. What a punk.
i agree that artest/peace is and has always been a punk.
Tyler gets a pass on this one, Metta is certifiable crazy and things could have escalated very quickly (Malice at the Palace anyone?!) which is why you become extra nice if you accidently bump into a crackhead on the street.
I think Tyler is using his head. Why start a fight with Metta WP and potentially getting decapitated in a pre-season game?
Yeah, he walked away and Metta Peace got a tech…Hansborough is a tough guy with brains. Metta, not so much.
Honestly don’t get whats the point …
yeah, me neither…because, the right thing to do there is…what, exactly? get in a fight? in a pre-season game? with the lunatic who started this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZI6OkXntGLI
This video and post is weak.
blake murphy, what do you think he should have done? behavior like
artest exhibited in the past does not translate into toughness. rather,
it translates into very negative public relations for the player and
team. the PACERS in the past few years, coinciding w/TYLER’S time in
indy, btw, have mostly recovered from the damage done to their
reputation (= fan support) when artest was not yet a man of “peace” and
had a habit of going into the stands to attack fans w/whom he had
issues……………………..TYLER is the epitome of
toughness. he’d probably get his butt whipped by most opposing players
in the league since he’s not a brawler, but he’d rise from his pool of
blood, wipe it off his face, as he did in his senior year at CAROLINA
when the dookie gerald henderson tried to decapitate him, hit his free throws , and finish the game. that type of attitude, fortitude, and behavior denote toughness for most mature fans.
Rate the Rudy Gay Trade:
I'm pretty sure in every time out, Casey just writes "Pound the Rock" on the clip board, and the Raps head out on the floor dazed and confused....except Amir because his dyslexia reads it as "Shoot a 3, you are Ray Allen"
