Did World Peace's past transgressions lead to his suspension for the Brandon Knight fracas? D'Antoni says yes ...
"I have faith that they looked at it and they felt it was worth (a suspension), so we have to go forward," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said.
Antawn Jamison will start in place of World Peace, who has had several suspensions in his 14-year career, including an 86-game suspension in 2004 for his role in the infamous brawl with Detroit Pistons fans.
"I'm sure that goes into it," D'Antoni said when asked if he felt that World Peace's history of on-court transgressions led to the suspension. "I think from their philosophy or policy that everything goes into it. They look at the player, they look at who did it and past experiences and they go over it like that."
