I think the artist formerly know as Ron Artest is just having some fun with the media. I think he will be back in the NBA next year, but I also believe if he did go to China it would awesome.
He is already getting paid by the Lakers, so take half the year off, go play in China and come back for a contender ala Tracy McGrady.
“I don’t really want to play for anybody,” World Peace said Friday at the Lakers’ practice facility. “I don’t want to go anywhere. I want to go to China, or coach or play arena football.”
World Peace said he has spoken to Yao Ming about joining his former Houston Rockets teammate’s Chinese team, the Shanghai Sharks. He said he’s had conversations with representatives from “a couple other teams” in China, as well.
