Metta World Peace wants Lamar Odom to be the Lakers ball boy
Now that Lamar Odom has finally cut ties with the Mavericks but will still be paid for the remainder of the season, he’s pretty much free to do whatever he wants. What would you do for the next few months if your boss paid you to stay away? Would you go on a long vacation? Sit around and do nothing? Get another job and double up on the money? Metta World Peace has an idea for Odom if he gets bored, but something tells me Lamar wouldn’t go for it.
“Maybe he can come back and be a ball boy and then next year, come play,” World Peace said Monday night according to ESPNLosAngeles.com. “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.”
Considering Odom is still fuming with the Lakers for trading him to Dallas, I doubt he’d want to come back and chase towels and basketballs around. At least World Peace paid Lamar a compliment and said he could be a good evaluator of talent by recommending he become a scout. Oh wait, he meant a scout like a boy scout.
“Lamar should just like for one month, just be a boy scout and wear the outfit,” the artist formerly known as Artest joked before adding that Odom could probably earn a Skittles merit badge. “Just have fun. You’re getting paid.”
World Peace then recommended Odom go find the biggest mountain in the world and hike it, so Lamar has plenty of suggestions to ponder. Between these comments, his suggestion for Jeremy Lin’s fashion makeover, and his thank you to Jesus for letting us lose our teeth at a young age, this could be my favorite Artest year yet.
H/T Game On!
