Default MWP/Artest has been officially amnestied

I'm glad to have had this man be a part of the Lakers organization. He has clearly come a long way since the Malice in Auburn Palace. The shot he hit in game 7 and the defense he played throughout the Finals runs was truly something special. He will be missed but never forgotten for his great contributions.

Thank-you Metta World Peace a.k.a. Ron Artest!

The Los Angeles Lakers released Metta World Peace via the amnesty clause on Thursday.

"It's tough to say goodbye to a player such as Metta, who has been a significant part of our team the past four seasons. For anyone who's had the opportunity to get to know him, it's impossible not to love him," Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said in a release. "He has made many contributions to this organization, both in his community work as well as in our games; perhaps no more so than in his clutch play in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals in helping to lead us over the Celtics in one of the greatest playoff wins in Lakers history. We thank Metta for all his contributions and wish him the best of luck in the future."

One of the greatest sidekicks to Kobe, and one of the better teammates to ever wear a laker uniform. His career didn't get off to a hot start with his temper, but as a laker, his reputation was revived and he led us to arguably the best championship the lakers ever earned.

My favorite player, I am sad to see him go and I hope he will always stay in LA. Everyone needs a Ron Artest.

Okay well maybe the best of Kobe's era.

1) it was against the celtics
2) It was a rematch finals against the celtics
3) it went to game 7
4) Ron Artest, a role player, picked up the slack and kept us in
5) it was a second of back to back championships

All these factors are what make this championship victory special.

Best ever? maybe not. Best of Kobe's era? Yeah I'll probably concede to that.
