You can add one more technical foul under his name after the referees blew the whistle on him during the second quarter of the game between FilAm Sports and San Beda in the 2019 NBTC Nationals Finals.
UAAP’s basketball statistician Pong Ducanes captured the moment when World Peace entered the court from the FilAm Sports’ bench that got him his first technical foul in a Philippine basketball court.
World Peace’s son Jeron Artest is one of the players in the FilAm sports roster.
