Ron Artest vicious dunk on CJ Miles

He was Ron Artest when he threw down this dunk but now Metta World Peace is looking for a new place to play after getting amnesties by the Los Angeles Lakers.  On this play Mike Bibby throws Ron the lob pass ahead and he throws it down hard on CJ Miles.  Artest played some of his best years in Sacramento where he averaged 20.5 points a game.  He even goes and high fives some fans sitting behind the hoop after this dunk.

It was rumored that Artest could be interested in going back to Sacramento as they are much in need of a small forward even after adding Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.  John Salmons is seen as the starter but Artest could come in and probably win the starting job.  He would also be a good local veteran for a young Sacramento team lacking veteran leadership. 

One other team that Metta had shown interest in is the New York Knicks because he is from there and his dad lives there.  He would definitely come off the bench in favor of Carmelo Anthony but he could be a nice fit there to provide defense and replace Chris Copeland as a backup small forward.

However, World Peace has said recently that he wants to play in China and is done with the NBA.  I will believe that when he officially signs there but until then I think he will find an NBA team for next season.
