Metta World Peace Was On 'Yo Gabba Gabba', Didn't Violently Elbow Anyone

Beyond my nieces and nephews, I’m not much of a guy who digs the whole kids scene, because I’ve been told that once you have children it’s “frowned upon” to take them to strip clubs, and it’s like, how the hell are they going to appreciate their mom if they can’t watch her work.

Depending on whom you ask, the Los Angeles Lakers either just pulled off a fantastic or terrible trade that makes them instant contenders again or just makes them older.

When Orlando Magic and eventual Brooklyn Nets center Dwight Howard agreed to sign his one-year extension to "let the Magic try to keep him", a lot of people were pissed off at Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade when he made fun of Howard on Twitter for his overzealous use of the word "loyalty".

Metta World Peace Promotes Mental Health Awareness By Being Out Of His Goddamn Mind

By

I'm not sure if Metta World Peace loves the film Meteor Man or if Eric Warheim just tricked him into thinking <a href="http://youtu.be/psOY_WNAUsM" target="_blank">'Channel 5 Kid Break'</a>-style slam dunk videos would help promote mental health awareness, but here we are: Metta World Peace is skateboarding across skyscrapers to dunk flaming basketballs because he wants your brain to work.

James Harden And Metta World Peace Will Never Be Friends

By now, we should be over the fact that in a moment of testosterone- and adrenaline-fueled celebration, a professional athlete was careless and <a href="http://withleather.uproxx.com/2012/04/metta-world-peace-earned-a-week-off">violently elbowed another player in the head</a>.

Taiwan Animation: Metta World Peace Literally Removes James Harden’s Head

World Peace elbowing James Harden in the head and knocking it off is pretty predictable, but what isn't is how Taiwan interprets the Pacers fan brawl.

Welcome Back, Psycho!

<a href="http://s977.photobucket.com/albums/ae252/AshleyBurns1979/?action=view&current=Artest.gif" target="_blank"> Last year, after changing his name to Metta World Peace, the Artest formerly known as Ron set out to openly prove that he’s a good person with a kind heart. For example, on September 21, 2011, World Peace donated more than $285,000 to mental health charities after he sold his NBA Championship ring. It seemed as if he was changing for the better, ever since, you know, that whole thing in Detroit. But I’m sure the better majority of us still had a thought all the way in the back of our brains – “When’s this dude going to lose his sh*t again and try to kill someone?” And all it took was a downward spiral in his personal play this season for World Peace to get overly excited about a dunk and try to decapitate an opponent like he did yesterday against James Harden and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Artest – because who can even call him World Peace now without laughing harder than before? – was ejected from the Lakers’ 114-106 double overtime victory over the Thunder just before the end of the first half after he viciously elbowed Harden in the side of the head, but before we get all preachy, just know that the elbow – that you can watch over and over and over above – <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/MettaWorldPeace">was an accident, okay</a>.

The sports world is abuzz with the news that a Magic-Johnson fronted group broke the dang old bank in order to purchase the Dodgers for over $2 billion, which is a figure so absurd that it may as well be written like a comic strip character says cuss words.

And That Was Quick

Having never watched an episode of "Dancing With the Stars," what with my indifference toward dancing and the show’s lack of stars, I at least had a silent interest in the latest season, as I wanted Ron Artest, AKA Metta World Peace, to put on a hell of a show.
