Metta World Peace, aka The Pandas' Friend, is currently playing in the Italian League for Pallacanestro Cantu and in the team's recent playoff contest against Umana Reyer Venezia, the mercurial forward had a bit of a meltdown.
With his team down eight in the fourth quarter, World Peace managed to rack up a stunning five fouls inside of one minute. When that was not enough to get him tossed from the contest, the former Lakers star got into a shoving match.
Video of the scuffle that leads to The Pandas' Friend's ejection, along with his coach's incensed reaction, can be seen below, and the Sporting News has a screen shot of the play by play, showing the star's fouling spree.
Pay attention at the 2:50 mark of the video as opposing fans try to pelt World Peace's team with garbage, leading to one teammate throwing a very emphatic double-bird to the crowd.
