Ron Artest Metta World Peace has suggested that Lamar Odom should rejoin the Lakers as a a ball boy/towel boy for the rest of the year.
Well aren’t you funny, Ron. So your teammate who you won a championship with is now a peon? You have a guy that was traded away from a team after seven years and two championships and you suggest he become the ball boy? Then Ron tries to cover his tracks and say, ‘Oh no, he should be a scout’? The guy just got released from a team and you, “World Peace,” his former teammate are going to rub salt in that open wound?
If you want the guy to rejoin the team, don’t belittle him in the media by saying he could be the ball boy. Regardless of any plans to have Lamar play in LA next year that might be in place, the last thing I want is my former teammate saying that I should do a publicity stunt by wiping the sweat off his face.
NBA players just don’t have a sense of humor I guess — remember LeBron and Wade fake coughing last year? I wonder if they would have done that if it was Jordan they were facing when he had the flu. Greg Oden thinks its funny to be the number one pick overall and then never play. These guys need a crash course on what is funny and what just makes them a dickhead. At least once “World Peace” gets cut he can pursue his dream of becoming a Laker girl.
This has to be the biggest “Fuck You” since Tin Cup when David Simms showed up to Roy McAvoy’s driving range saying he needed help in a tournament and then had him caddy. I can only hope that Lamar has an equal opportunity to prove himself and show up the man who wronged him like Roy does in this scene.
