It’s been a long, zany offseason for Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest… excuse me, my apologies. That’s Metta World Peace now. As I was saying, it’s been a crazy summer for Mr. World Peace, what with his name change, outstanding traffic tickets, and his failed attempt to play basketball in London during the lockout. And then there’s his decision to join this season’s cast of “Dancing With the Stars.”
World Peace joins fellow athlete Hope Solo, as well as human-tarantula hybrid Nancy Grace, the least talented Kardashian, a girl who used to sleep with George Clooney, the chick who was upset that Jay Cutler dumped her, that gay guy from the gay show, David Arquette’s crazy ass, the hot girl from Wilson Phillips, somebody named J.R. Martinez, Philadelphia Eagles lineman Ricki Lake, and Chaz Bono, the Stay Puft Marshmallow transsexual.
Artest is currently at 10-1 to win this season, according to Bodog, but I wouldn’t know much about gambling or dancing. I just really wanted to post this picture of Artest practicing.
