LOS ANGELES - It seems like things in Mudslideville (Los Angeles) just keep getting bleaker for the purple and gold team.
The latest episode in the roundball soap opera As The Big Round Ball Turns has Metta World Peace (the player formerly known as Ron Artest) being waived by the LaLaLand Lakers.
And Metta has responded by saying the hell with the Lakers.
The word is that the Lakers organization simply got tired of World Peace's non-peaceful manner on the wooden floor.
It is no secret that Ron Artest may have changed his name to Metta World Peace, but deep down inside the brutha was still Ron Artest the out-of-control trouble magnet.
Metta, 33, spoke with Hercules Confetti of Sporting Chance Magazine and he said that he is thinking about either playing pro ball overseas in China or else in Egypt.
"Egypt?" Confetti asked surprised.
"Yassir" Metta replied, "I hear tell dat dem Egyptians has got some damn good soul food restaurants all over da place out yonder."
Confetti told him that he did not want to bust his bubble but he pointed out that he had Egypt confused with Pakistan.
Metta World Peace moaned and said, "Well hell then I guess I will just stay here in da USA and see about taking Charles "The Fat Bro" Barkley's TNT sports job."
