Metta World Peace receives retroactive flagrant-two foul for elbow to Kenneth Faried

Feb 28, 2013, 7:28 PM EDT

We brought the play to your attention on Wednesday, and at the time, believed that Metta World Peace had gotten away with one, since two days had passed without any word of punishment being handed down from the league office.

We should know better.

The NBA has retroactively slapped World Peace with a flagrant-two foul for the elbow he landed to the head of Kenneth Faried in Monday’s loss to the Nuggets, reports Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.

The play was ignored by officials at the time, but if they had seen it and ruled it the way the league office did three days later, World Peace would have been ejected for his actions.

It’s worth noting that World Peace, along with teammate Dwight Howard, are tied for the league lead in flagrant foul points with five apiece. If either player commits just one more flagrant-one foul during the remainder of the regular season, they will receive a one-game suspension.

All players’ flagrant foul points, as well as technical foul counts, reset to zero at the beginning of the postseason.

    WE can only guess that Rodman told the dictator of North Korea,”don’t let in that Metta guy, he might do something rash and you got enough on your plate right now.”

      I know FAKER fans need something to cheer for……BUT,

      Before you go tripping over yourself and getting goose bumps….Blake was playing against

      5’9″ Barea

      Rubio – No Clue how to shoot or play D yet…Just happy to be on the court

      5’11” Ridnour – No interest in playing D…just want to make a basket or 2

      You will be swiftly reminded how SORRY S. Flake, Nash and the rest of that backcourt is when they play the Thunder !

      ahahahahah

    Looks like he didn’t get away with it at all.

    FAKE Tough Guy…No proven fighting skills!

    Just a dirty, nasty guy that has always been only a mediocre player in his prime anyway!

    The league has ran guys off and essentially banned them from the league, that had MUCH more talent than this doofus ! Ex: Steph Marbury, A.I., Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf etc. etc. etc.

    The owners of all the other teams should petition Stern (before he leaves) to get this Kimbo Slice- no fight skills having thug out of the league, before he hurts someone that can actually play the game.

    Do the nuggs get free throws still?

    Isn’t it great that “World Peace” is one of the most aggressive, hostile players in the league! He should have been a defensive end!

    He is a bum and an idiot. Someone is going to get hurt even worse than they already have by this lowlife.
