Metta World Peace

I Look Good

in a GRIZZLIES Jersey

6/11/2012 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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. 

Second, the bar where Metta was rapping is located in Vancouver.

Still, an interesting move, considering Metta is in the middle of a 5-year $33 million contract he signed with the Lakers back in 2009 ... and when a team's paying you $33 MILLION ... you don't put on another team's uniform.

So, we gotta ask ...

The question TMZ should have asked was: "Should Metta aka Ron Artest get out of the NBA forever?"

As a Lakers fan, I think Metta is a great player, but his off-court (and even on) stunts are getting really annoying. I'd like to see him stay with the Lakers organization, but he's in dire need of a fist to the face full of reality...

It is no big deal. Everyone knows he's a moron, so we shouldn't be over thinking his intentions.

I think it's the other way around. I can't see LA wanting HIM. Telling people to enjoy Labor day on Memorial day... and then thinking labor day is for laborers killed while laying bricks or something. This guy's a douche and a moron.
