In a pre-season game against the Raptors, Metta World Peace tussled with Tyler Hansbrough, and after the game said the NBA was filled with "Mr. Softees." 

Known as one of the toughest men in the league, Metta has proven his toughness by being part of a championship team, and also occasionally losing his cool and getting into altercations.  During a pre-season game where the Knicks took on the Raptors, World Peace locked up with Tyler Hansbrough who was having none of it.  He and the Knicks forward stared each other down quickly before Hansbrough's flash of "Psycho T" dissipated. 

After the game, MWP was asked about the quick exchange with the Raptors new bruising forward, and he said he respected Hansbrough, and that he was one of the few true tough guys left in the league.  Lamenting the current NBA, Metta World Peace said the league was filled with a bunch of "Mr. Softees,"  a soft-serve ice cream famous in New York.  

 

I love guys like that. I need that physical action. The game has changed so much. Now we got all these Mr. Softees. You know Mr. Softee in New York? A lot of people are made from the ice cream cone. A lot of basketball players are made right from the Mr. Softee ice cream cone truck. I like Mr. Softee. I don’t like to play basketball with Mr. Softee. I just like Mr. Softee after a nice, hot summer day.
