The Artest formerly known as Ron is now known as Metta World Peace. There is a joke or two in there somewhere.
World Peace plays in the NBA for the Los Angeles Lakers. World Peace is not only a thug, he is a recidivist in his thuggery.
Paul wrote about World Peace’s latest on-court assault, on the Oklahoma City Thunder’s James Harden this past Sunday, here. Paul’s friend Bill Otis commented on the incident in “World Peace throws an elbow.” The video is below.
Watching the video, I thought World Peace should be required to sit out for a long time. The Commissioner of the NBA, however, has now declared that a suspension of seven games is the punishment that fits the crime. Visualize the return of World Peace!
