09:40 AM ET 07.13 | Metta World Peace says he wants to continue his playing career in China or try his hand at coaching, and if those don't work there is always Arena Football. The one thing World Peace claims he doesn't want to do is play in the NBA, which would end the idea of the player formerly known as Ron Artest returning home to play for the Knicks. Of course, all of World Peace's comments should come with a warning label. Believe him at your own risk because there is no telling what World Peace is really thinking. "I don't really want to play for anybody," World Peace told reporters on Friday at the Lakers' practice facility in California. "I don't want to go anywhere. I want to go to China, or coach or play Arena Football."

If Wallace can be a assistant coach, Ron ron can be too. All we need is for JR to become a head coach in a few years.

Conflicting reports that Odom has signed with the Lakers. Nothing official as of yet.

He hasnt gotten to much left in the tank...More a bench guy now anyways....His defense has become average and he has always been a meh offensive player...

"Metta World Peace nixes NBA for China, Arena Football"...

I wonder if Baron Davis' alien friends will give him a ride there. Then again, Metta probably knows those aliens personally...
