UPDATE: Artest was evidently just kidding around. He tweeted, "I'm actually at my sneaker photo shoot. Cop my new grays at footaction !!! I was just playing with yal! Lmao ... Yal should laugh more. Loosen up your buttons like the pyssy cat doll song." I'd laugh more if it was something funny and not something really stupid. "I had alot of people fooled. Just like media. See yal should listen to ur parents. Not media. Believe in yourself. Not others Lol," he also tweeted. I don't know that you had anyone fooled, Metta. More just people annoyed that you made them at least wonder.
Did Ron Artest just break the news of the lockout ending? I suppose we'll have to wait and see as meeting's are still ongoing in New York. But here's what Metta World Peace tweeted:
If you go to ronartest.com, there's nothing really there that indicates any breaking news. Just a song for you to download by his daughter promoting cancer awereness.
Artest isn't claiming he was hacked and hasn't said he was joking yet. But it's not hard to picture this being a lame publicity stunt for Artest's website or something. Which would be for a good cause, but using the lockout to spread the word isn't very cool. A lot of people have a lot riding on these labor negotiations, and not just owners and players.
But Metta World Peace breaking the lockout news? That would be like the most Metta World Peace thing ever. How u.
