Metta World Peace Says Lamar Odom Should "just be a boy scout and wear the outfit"

The Dallas Mavericks deactivated forward Lamar Odom yesterday in a fitting end to a glaringly uninspired season. So since we will no longer be seeing the reality star sulk up and down the court as though someone were requesting he wax Stan Van Gundy’s back, his childhood buddy, Metta World Peace, was thoughtful enough to come up with a few ideas that might help fill some of his free time.

“Maybe he can come back and be a ball boy and then next year, come play,” World Peace said with a cat-that-ate-the-canary grin on his face. “That’s what he should do. He’d be the first ball boy in the NBA that can play. Come back; get the towels and next year, play.”

Sadly, since the Mavs have not opted to sever ties just yet and are still paying Odom, the ball boy gig isn’t an option at the moment. However

“Lamar should just like for one month, just be a boy scout and wear the outfit,” said World Peace. “Just have fun. You’re getting paid.”

He went on to explain that Odom would end up earning a merit badge for something that had to with candy; probably Skittles.

I’ve said this many times and I’ll happily say it again: Ronnie Peace needs his own talk show upon retiring from the NBA. And if it were up to me, he would retire today. Perhaps Dikembe Mutombo and his thunderous cackle would be willing to serve as his Ed McMahon.

Since we’re here, let’s soak in the magic that is Ronnie’s tribute to Michael Jackson. Yes, he actually says “you in heaven, I hope to see you next year.”
