Metta World Peace has never been far from controversy in his well documented career.

The New York Knicks veteran has seen and done it all over the years, but his latest headline-grabbing incident is likely to rank up their with the most peculiar of them all.

Only last weekend was it revealed that Peace and his equally volatile team-mate Kenyon Martin had been involved in an altercation come fight with each other during practise. Now though it has emerged that the kerfuffle was caused by... pasta.

That's right, you heard it correctly.

According to Peace he and Martin were at loggerheads over which type of pasta was superior.

Rather than agreeing to disagree- like the majority of the rest of the planet would- they chose to take their conflict of opinions to the next level, if Yahoo Sport is to be believed. 

Peace himself has denied that things descended in a fight, but did admit that pasta was involved.

Said Metta: “We were eating pasta. He had elbow pasta, I had shell pasta, and I told him how my shell pasta is better than his elbow pasta. And he was pretty upset about that.

"He loves elbow pasta, but I disagree, I think shell pasta is better. I don't care. I will stand by that. Shell pasta.”

It's no wonder that the Knicks are currently on a nine-game losing streak.
