World Peace Researching Retirement

http://www.hoopsworld.com/nba-2-world-p ... retirement

The answer has yet to be decided but in the meantime, Lakers forward Metta World Peace has asked the NBA Player Association for instructions on how to file retirement papers.

According to his agent David Bauman, Metta intends to finish out his contract (two remaining years at $7.3 million and $7.7 million, the latter an early-termination option for Peace) but is preparing for the possibility that the Lakers amnesty him this coming summer.

Retirement would essentially be a threat to dissuade a team with cap room that might have designs on putting an amnesty claim in for Peace.

Peace might prefer time off or even playing overseas rather than getting claimed by a team outside of his comfort zone.

He literally changes his mind one minute to another, he'll think the complete opposite 5 mins later and wants to keep playing

Seriously, right?
Same can be said about his game on the court.

Read the article. He only plans to retire if he's amnestied.

Keeping him engaged was a challenge even for Phil, so it's no wonder that Tater has absolutely no control of Ron.

I think the only one who can control him is Kobe.

Right. But to be honest, given his erratic play and even more erratic behavior, I don't think there's much danger on another team picking him up off the amnesty waiver wire.
