It’s safe to say we will have World Peace on Christmas day.
Dear Ron Artest, I mean, Metta World Peace,
“Changing my name was meant to inspire and bring youth together all around the world,” World Peace said in a statement. “I’m glad that it is now official” (Source).
I still don’t understand.
His daughter, Diamond, will also change her name to World Peace.
MUST WATCH: Lamar Odom, Candyman
ESPN’s excellent piece on Lamar Odom’s sweet tooth, or perhaps more appropriately, “sweet mouth.”
“Hershey’s white chocolate, cookies and cream…I go through like 4 or 5 bags of those a day.”
How does this man still have teeth?
MUST WATCH: Ron Artest gets pranked by Jimmy Kimmel
I was twenty seconds into the bit. Hit stop. Grabbed the embed, and had to post it.
He is so scared of those things! Hahahaha
“The best part of basketball, for those people on the inside, is the bus going to the airport after you’ve won a game on an opponent’s floor. Preferably, in the playoffs. And that feeling that you have, together as a group, having gone to an opponent’s floor and won a very good victory, is as about as high as you can get.” - Phil Jackson
I’m gonna miss this guy );
This is my favorite Phil Jackson moment.
The Lakers say the Lord’s Prayer together after Sunday games. After winning the ‘08-‘09 Championship on a Sunday, the team was rowdy, celebrating their first title since ‘03, spraying champagne all over each other. The old screw that he is, Phil stayed out of fracas.
“You settle down,” he demanded.
Determined to have their coach join the fun, the team lied to their coach, telling him they wanted to pray together one more time that season.
“We’re saying the Lord’s Prayer, right?” asked Jackson.
A “Yeah…” could be heard.
As Phil joined the group, Kobe wrapped his arm around Phil, keeping him in the circle of his teammates. Bryant, then the team doused him. Jackson panicked, tried to fight them off, then resigned himself, looked skyward, and let the champagne wash over his face.
Phil Jackson is the best basketball coach I’ve ever seen, and I hope he enjoys every moment of his retirement. He deserves it.
