Metta World Peace Says Dalai Lama Won't Tweet Him Back

Metta World Peace, in what can only be an attempt to show Dennis Rodman who is the real basketball ambassador to the world, is upset that he's being ignored by The Dalai Lama.

World Peace told reporters in an interview that he's been trying to send some direct messages to the Buddhist leader, but to no avail.

I'm not sure whether it's the fact that the Dalai Lama is too good for Metta, it might just be that he doesn't have time to hook up with the oft-erratic Lakers forward.

It could be that, or it could just be that World Peace and the Dalai Lama don't exactly ascribe to the same level of peace, surnames notwithstanding.

Perhaps if World Peace goes a season or two without elbowing a guy in the head or slugging a dude in the face, His Holiness would be more interested in tweeting back. That, or maybe the Lama is just not a basketball fan; he strikes me as more of a cricket man.

Or maybe World Peace can meet him in person. The Dalai Lama is coming to the States next month, and with the Lakers potentially looking at an early playoff exit, they could set up a meeting. 

Who knows, World Peace might just be that three-l llama that Ogden Nash pondered about.
