Malice At The Palace Was Once A $50 Bet

November 19th, 2004 is one of the darkest days in NBA history. An early regular season game between the Indiana Pacers and the Detroit Pistons turned into an incredibly ugly scene as Metta World Peace (then Ron Artest) ran into the stands after having a beer thrown at him by fan. Artest would be suspended for the season and his career was forever changed. 

In a lengthy conversation with Jason Smith and Mike Harmon, World Peace reveals some interesting facts about the "Malice At The Palace." He tells the guys that he is fine with it & that it initially started as a $50 bet. Listen to the crazy story in the audio above.
