Metta World Peace suggests that Lamar Odom come back to the Lakers as a ball boy. Now that NBA star’s split from the Dallas Mavericks is official, he is getting lots of suggestions on what he could be doing with his time.
However, surely none of it is as bizarre as the suggestion of childhood friend and former Lakers teammate Metta World Peace, born Ronald William Artest Jr., who jumped on Odom before the ink on his pen dried.
According to ESPN reports, after the Lakers vs. Hornets game World Peace stated with a grin, “Maybe he can come back and be a ball boy and then next year, come play. 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.”
Metta World Peace could not contain himself , he continued, “Lamar should just like for one month, just be a Boy Scout and wear the outfit,” he took it a step further stating “Just have fun. You’re getting paid.”
Finally, the 32-year-old small forward completed his rant with, “Odom should hike a mountain like Dirk Nowitzki. What’s the biggest mountain in the world?” World Peace blurted out. “(Odom) should hike it. He should go hike it. Do something that’s never been done.”
