HOLLYWOOD, Calif.--A day after his ouster from "Dancing with the Stars," Metta World Peace, the NBA star formally known as Ron Artest, was, well, at peace with himself. After all, the world's throwing him a global party.
World leaders decided to declare September 21 "World Peace Day" in his honor, a day celebrated all over the globe with festivals and concerts.
"All is good, man," stated World Peace after leaving the stage of DWTS. "Tomorrow, we're gonna get it done!"
Said Lakers fan Nora Lopez, "It's the world's way of saying, 'Thank you, Metta, for dancing your heart out. Don't feel bad that you dance the Cha-Cha-Cha like a stiff noodle."
Retired NBA veteran of 13 seasons in the 70s and 80s, World B. Free, had a different take: "Fucked up moves from a guy with a fucked up name."
World Peace and Peta Murgatroyd were eliminated due to low scores from the judges and home viewers. It signaled the quickest elimination World Peace had experienced since his 2005-2006 first-round playoff loss when the San Antonio Spurs ousted World Peace's Sacramento Kings in five games.
