Ron Artest: Metta World Peace Tweets Lockout Has Ended, Should We Believe It?

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterOctober 4, 2011

Ron Artest has our attention. Well, more than he usually does anyway.

Metta World Peace has tweeted some very important and tremendous news. I am not so sure I am ready to buy into it, though.

On Tuesday, all was calm on the NBA front. The usual pace of league lockout was in place. Meeting were scheduled and agents were advising. Then came a huge rumor wrapped in the tiniest of packages.

Metta World Peace, the Lakers forward that was previously known as Ron Artest, took to Twitter and delivered some exciting news.

His first tweet was the pinnacle of intriguing. It was vague and filled with optimism.

 

Then there was this tweet that got me out of my chair. I am a sucker for  exclamation points after all.

The next tweet is where I had some trouble.

A look at ronartest.com delivers nothing in the way of lockout news. There is discussion on mental health and some ads for his sneakers. As far as the NBA lockout, nothing.

Alas, this seems like a very naughty marketing ploy. Or, knowing Metta World Peace, a very brief and ill-advised boost of optimism.

It seems that, for now, the NBA is still very much in lockout mode.
