OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Knicks forward Metta World Peace says Marcus Smart can learn from the fallout that will come after the Oklahoma State All-American shoved a fan during a game at Texas Tech.
World Peace was known as Ron Artest in 2004 when he, then playing for the Indiana Pacers, ran into the stands and attacked a Detroit Pistons fan he thought threw a beer on him. Artest was suspended for 73 regular-season games and the playoffs before being traded the next season.
Texas Tech said Sunday it is investigating what might have provoked Smart to push a Red Raiders' fan.
World Peace says Smart should direct his emotion toward winning. He says he would advise Smart to listen to his elders and be more conscious of the big picture when making choices.
