Metta World Peace Misses the LA Times Ripping Him

Metta World Peace (aka Ron Artest) went on a Twitter rant Thursday, rattling off all the things he misses during what’s now Day 134 of the NBA lockout.

Oddly enough, one thing the Los Angeles Lakers forward misses is the Los Angeles Times sports department letting him know “how sucky” he is.

LAT Lakers blogger Mark Medina had a great response via Twitter (which he eventually deleted) that said, “Sorry to hear you miss The L.A. Times saying you suck. On behalf of my LAT colleagues, you suck Metta World Peace.”

Be careful what you wish for.
