09:01 AM ET 03.02 | As if George Karl needed another reason to loathe the Lakers. The self-avowed Lakers hater watched video of Metta World Peace smacking Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried in the mouth Monday and came away with a fairly straightforward review: two thumbs down. "I saw it on film and I thought it was -- whatever the word is -- premeditated," Karl, the veteran Nuggets coach, said Friday about a play toward the end of the third quarter in which no foul was called. The NBA seemed to agree, retroactively assessing World Peace a flagrant-2 foul Thursday. If the league needed more evidence, it could always check with Faried. "I still have a scar in my mouth," Faried said. "When I eat, it still burns."

Feta Whirled Cheese does some good things on and off the court ... but he is still such a head case.

QUOTE(#9):

I'd prefer less ref involvement than moreif metta knocks out faried- then let some scrub on denvers bench knock out metta. let these guys police themselves. and let the coaches be smart enough to put in the goons to take care of business.eventually- you won't have guys throwing throat chops and elbows cause they know that the star on their team will get a reciprocated clothesline.

And that's why hockey is the best sport around.

We need more of this stuff. I would love to see a return to the days where players actually didn't like each other. Today's NBA is a like a love fest all the time. Give me the Knicks vs Bulls from the 90's or the Piston's and the Bad Boys...The NBA could really use some more heated rivalries. Who cares if Meta hit the Manimal in the mouth and if the NBA should do something about it? A better question would be why didn't the Manimal return the favor?
