Following a hard foul, Tyler Hansbrough turns around to give a piece of his mind to whoever had roughed him up, and when he sees it's Metta World Peace he decides against it.
I don't think this is Psycho T backing down, as much as it is him initially losing his cool, and then quickly regaining his composure (although having MWP stare you down can probably assist in "gaining your composure.")
Some fans were putting Hansbrough on blast, and Metta came to his defense saying he's a good hard-nosed player, and someone he'd want to have on his own team someday.
