Metta World Peace shoved two players during Venice League game in L.A. (VIDEO)

Metta World Peace has a reputation of being one of the game’s more physical players, as well as one who would never back down from a physical confrontation -- infamously, of course, at one point in his career, which caused him to be suspended by the NBA for an entire season.

That was a long time ago, however visions of Ron Artest showed up at an outdoor league game over the weekend, when World Peace apparently had just about enough of the game’s physicality.

Somewhat ironically, World Peace seemed to welcome a street-ball style of play just the day before all this went down.

I love playing on concrete. No fouls. I love this brand of ball. Can’t wait til next week pic.twitter.com/Jws2ye0zuo

But at some point in this particular game, things took a turn and lines were crossed.

I am the only pro playing in Venice this summer? Its dangerous out there. I really dont know why i went back a third time

I dont mind aggressive ball, but anytime u get hit on the elbow or arm while shooting or hit driving to the basket or on top of the head..

That should be a foul. I wouldn’t advise any pros to go to Venice until the fix the rules. I would have quit but that ain’t me. Ill b back!!

World Peace will continue to play, but wants to recruit some players who will have his back. So, in case you know anyone ...

I actually need some ballers. Next sunday i have three extra jerseys. I need help on my team. They bullied my Highschool players.

I’ve never wrestled on a court five straight times as the ref watched. Really ref?

World Peace was waived by the Knicks in February, and is currently an unrestricted free agent.
