Ron Artest in the stands

One of the league’s most interesting players, Metta World Peace, never fails to amaze us. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Either way, he always keeps us interested.

I’m sure you remember the Brawl at the Palace between the Indiana Pacers and the Detroit Pistons that led to a flurry of suspensions, fines, etc. At the center of this incident was the player formerly known as Ron Artest. After having a drink thrown at him by a fan, Artest charged into the stands and proceeded to fight with fans.

Well, guess what? Metta World Peace is now friends with the fan who threw the beer at him.

According to the report, Metta went to Twitter to find fan John Green’s phone number and proceeded to give him a call. And just like that, everything seems to be just fine between the two.

Green, who claims World Peace is a “good guy” with a lot of similarities to himself, said the two want to reach out to people who have issues similar to theirs.

“That’s what it’s all about,” he said. “It’s getting over the hurdles in life and getting past them and using what we’ve done as a mistake.”

I’m not sure many people would like to compare themselves to Metta World Peace, who has had more than his share of problems in the league. He has admitted to drinking booze during games and viciously elbowed James Harden, among other incidents.

Well, good for Metta for reaching out and clearing the air with the fan. Still kind of weird, though.
