In Case You Missed It: Metta’s Twitter

By now you know that the Los Angeles Lakers’ Ron Artest has legally changed his name to Metta World Peace. What you may have missed is that this sort of dose of crazy from a man we need to remember is a championship-winning athlete is nothing new. Artest is known for his bizarre interviews, but slightly less so for his various escapades on the unfiltered thought forum known as Twitter.

So, for today’s In Case You Missed It, I want to share some of his greatest hits. The following screenshots were compiled by Complex magazine and a site with a bizarrely specific title, SharapovasThigh.com. Enjoy the crazy, folks.

For further nuggets of comic gold, the Los Angeles Times has a pretty great article on this boom, which mostly took place last summer, over here.
