Metta was frustrated. He was being hacked all game

EDIT: Wow, I came back to this page and see that my first uploaded video has gone viral!
MWP is one of my favorite players. In this era of flops and ticky tack fouls, it's nice to see a player who's a throwback to the old days. I miss guys like Charles Oakley.

Just to give a little bit of context to the game: the VBL doesn't award any free throws, so there is no real penalty to fouling. I'd say 80-90% of the fouls went uncalled, so you had to go hard and strong, or don't go at all. Also, Metta's extracurricular activities were more or less a show for the crowd like the WWE. They expected Metta World War, and they got it.

There was nothing thuggish or brutish about his game, no craziness, just Venice Basketball.

Can't wait to see you again Metta!
