Ron Artest, AKA Metta World Peace, is by all accounts – and I’m using a technical medical term here – out of his f*cking mind. Thankfully, though, he’s been a breath of fresh air during this NBA lockout with his ambitious efforts of being a “comedian.” Granted, most of his Twitter jokes don’t induce laughs as much as they cause crickets to chirp, but at least the guy is trying.
But as Pro Basketball Talk pointed out, Artest Tweeted the above idea the other day and it is the most refreshing idea that I’ve heard during this entire STUPID F*CKING NBA LOCKOUT. One owner, one player. One-on-one to determine the fate of the lockout. If the owner wins, they all get 53% like they’re currently asking. If the player wins, his side gets 53% like they wanted. I know he says 70% but let’s be real. Besides, who wouldn’t want to watch this?
Obviously, I want to watch all of that happen, but I would L-O-V-E to watch Artest, er World Peace play the GOAT for the final word. Charlotte Bobcats players have said that when Jordan practices with the team he is still better than most of them. I guarantee he would beat Artest now, too. So let’s do this!
Better yet, let’s make it so much more interesting. Let’s take the biggest douchebag owner – hands down it’s Donald Sterling – and make him play the laziest player we can think of. I’m nominating Gilbert Arenas. I’m not going to lie, I’m going to spend most of my day dreaming about this.
