Metta World Peace

I Look Good

in a GRIZZLIES Jersey

Metta World Peace in a Grizzlies jerseyIt's either a sign of respect ... or a sign that he wants out of L.A. ... but Los Angeles Lakers star Metta World Peace donned a Vancouver Grizzlies jersey this weekend while rapping in Canada.

A couple of noteworthy points -- first, the Grizzlies left Vancouver in 2001 and moved to Memphis.

I seriously doubt he is sending the message you are suggesting. The Vancouver Grizzlies were not a team that many of the NBA players wanted to play on. They did not have much success as a team. Maybe he was just giving a nod to the city he was rapping on?

He was just showing some hometown respect. The Vancouver Grizzlies are a defunct organization so he wasn't doing L.A. any harm by throwing on the jersey.
