Metta World Peace

Clubbing in Hollywood

After Lakers Playoff Loss

5/9/2012 8:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

050912_artest_launch
Minutes after the Los Angeles Lakers went down to the Denver Nuggets ... Metta World Peace's evening was just beginning ... at a fancy Hollywood nightclub.

MWP -- who's still suspended for elbowing OKC player James Harden -- rolled up to Avalon nightclub around 10:30 PM last night ... right around the same time the rest of his Lakers teammates were hitting the showers.

Mr. Peace was seen leaving the establishment shortly after midnight.

Metta -- formerly known as Ron Artest -- has been enjoying his time off. Earlier this week he appeared on "Conan" ... and admitted, "The elbow was too much and I deserved the suspension."

MWP is expected to rejoin his teammates if the Denver series goes to a Game 7 or when the next series begins -- but until then, might as well enjoy the break ... right?

It's stupid how seriously people make sports out to be. They aren't fighting wars people so who gives a **** how they spend their free time. Personally, I feel that they should be allowed to drink while playing the game. This is supposed to be entertainment after all!

Changing his name didn't do a thing to improve his personality. He should have changed it to POS.
