Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistOctober 21, 2013

Toronto Raptors forward Tyler Hansbrough plays with a lot of emotion. He got feisty while getting tangled up with New York Knicks forward Metta World Peace, but he quickly changed his attitude when he realized who it was.

Given World Peace's history, it's understandable as to why Hansbrough quickly calmed down and took the blame.

World Peace tweeted about the incident after the game.
