The player formerly known as Ron Artest never disappoints when a camera or tape recorder is near.
Metta World Peace’s former Lakers teammate Lamar Odom was deactivated by the Mavericks Monday. When asked about the situation by Dave McMenamin of ESPN LA, MWP offered this activity as an option for Lamar to return to LA:
“Maybe he can come back and be a ball boy and then next year, come play,” World Peace said with a cat-that-ate-the-canary grin on his face following the Lakers’ 93-91 win over the New Orleans Hornets on Monday. “That’s what he should do. He’d be the first ball boy in the NBA that can play. Come back; get the towels and next year, play. Why not? He should be a scout. Lamar should be a scout.”
“What’s the biggest mountain in the world? (Odom) should hike it. He should go hike it. Do something that’s never been done.”
Odom and MWP are childhood friends so there was no ill will intended from his comments, but they are nonetheless comical. Plus, what else would you expect from a guy that made this boneheaded play Monday night that almost cost the Lakers the win against the Hornets…
