LOS ANGELES - Apparently someone forgot to remind Los Angeles Lakers player Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, that he plays in the NBA, the National Basketball Association and not in the WWF, the World Wrestling Federation.
Tango Brisket with Sports Territory Magazine stated that first of all Metta World Peace should change his name one more time, this time to one that is much more in keeping with his 'uncivilized' behavior.
Brisket suggested that a much more fitting name for the elbow tossing (blank) would be Metta World Punk. And every Oklahoma City Thunder fan certainly agrees with making that name change.
Late in the second quarter of the Lakers game against the Thunder, MWP the out-of-control ruffian hit the Thunder's James Harden with a very hard elbow shot to the side of the head which knocked him out.
Arpest (sic) was ejected from the game, and according to many sports reporters, players, coaches, and true sports fans he should be banned for the rest of the season.
Metta World Punk needs to be sent a message that can somehow sink into his thick head that his cheap shot antics are no longer going to be tolerated.
Basketball fans recalled the vicious "Brawl in Detroit" of 2004, that was instigated by Ron Artest that ended up involving several fans in the stands and escalated to include three cheerleaders, two hot dog vendors, and the Detroit Pistons mascot.
When Metta World Duh was asked about the hard elbow that he hit Harden with the Lakers player simply shrugged his shoulders and replied that he did not recall the play because he was too busy acting like he is the round ball version of Mike "The Bite" Tyson.
Hopefully NBA Commissioner David Stern will act on this very atrocious incident which gives a black eye not only to the Los Angeles Lakers organization but to professional basketball as well.
SIDENOTE: Sports Balls Illustrated Weekly is reporting that Rush Limbaugh is thinking about making the scoundrel formerly known as Ron Artest an offer to be his personal bodyguard.
