Metta World Peace wants Lamar Odom to come back to Los Angeles. Unfortunately, Odom can't rejoin the Lakers as a member of the team because he's still technically a member of the Mavericks, even though they've deactivated him for the rest of the season. But, it sounds like World Peace has found a loophole that could get Odom back on the Lakers sidelines sooner rather than later.

"Maybe he can come back and be a ball boy and then next year, come play," he said last night after the Lakers beat the Hornets. "That's what he should do. He'd be the first ball boy in the NBA that can play. Come back; get the towels and next year, play. Why not?"

Why not? Doesn't World Peace know Odom rolls with the Kardashians now? Ha. Nice try, though. Good to see that you're still good for an awesome quote, Ron-Ron Metta.
