Metta World Peace tweets support to Tyler Hansbrough after ‘Scared Face’

A preseason NBA game between the Raptors and Knicks provided an unusually funny moment for fans. After getting tangled up under the basket, Toronto forward Tyler Hansbrough appeared ready to fight – until he turned around, that is.

When he spun around and saw Metta World Peace, Hansbrough looked like he had seen a ghost. Psycho T immediately backed down and just as quickly earned the teasing of the Twitterverse.

After it was over, World Peace himself took to the social networking site to defend young Hansbrough.

World Peace was not finished there, however. On Tuesday morning, he once again took to Twitter, this time with a personal message for the Raptors baller.

Preseason basketball doesn’t get much better than this.
