I will always appreciate Metta Ron for everything he did both on and off the court.

A true gentle man.

it's impossible to say anything bad about metta as a person once he plays on your team and you get to know him a bit more beyond his reputation.. nothing but respect to him...

as a player, i'll always remember his amazing performance to help us get revenge on the celtics in one of the best finals i've ever seen.. he's just simply not the same player anymore and with our current older lineup it just magnifies it 10 fold.. if he goes to a more athletic lineup or is used in spurts there's no question he can still be a very effective player and some contender will pick him up for sure.. i just hope it's not a team i highly dislike because i'd like to root for him on days he's not playing the lakers...

Ron was epic in '10 playoffs. Game winners and elite defense galore. Business move had to be made with this new cap, but I'm gonna miss the guy.

Thanks Ron Ron / Metta

I'll always remember...
the clutch 3 in game 7 of the finals
the post game press conference of game 7 of the finals
your game winning buzzer beater put back vs the suns in the WCF
& the flexing

I'll miss him. I thought his quirky hairstyles were hilarious, with LA shaved into his head and then his bleached hair his first year here.

One of my favorite memories was when he tussled with Paul Pierce before the game at mid court.

Great guy, one of my favourite Lakers ever. I hope he gets picked up by the Knicks, he deserves another shot.

So many great memories. Always proud to be a Laker warrior standing alongside Kobe and Pau for that one very special championship. On top of all that, nothing but admiration and respect for a man who does so good off the court

Damn, sad day to hear this news. Best always to you, MWP

I was totally wrong about Metta. He proved me wrong when he came to LA. He is a great, generous, man.

Without MWP, we do not beat the Celtics in 2010. I screamed when hit that three over Pierce. I'll never forget that moment.

I'll always love MWP, he was the definition a "Laker." He wanted to be here, be great, and win championships.

Thank you, Metta.

Even though his skill set was on the decline, i always felt he gave his 100% all the time...for that he gained much respect from me!

I would have loved to see us win one more chip with him here just to see his post game interviews! Good luck mwp, hopefully you wont go to a team i have to root against...

One of my favorites. I bought his single "Champion," and I will be buying a #37 Artest Lakers jersey, because that's what he was wearing when he helped us win that title.

Thanks for the memories, MWP! You will always be a Laker in my book.

he earned his contract in 2010, then spent the rest of the years driving us nuts. oh well, it was worth it. id pay 35 mil to win one title, especially over the celtics.

I appreciate what Metta brought to every game while he was a laker. Always giving 100%. Metta tells it like it is, which is another thing I love. He donated his championship ring to charity, that says a lot about who he is. Nothing but respect for this guy.
