Los Angeles Lakers star Ron Artest may be thinking about life after hoops — the 6’7″ forward performed a stand-up act last week at Caroline’s comedy club in New York City.

Artest, who made waves recently when he announced his decision to change his name to Metta World Peace, said he’s keeping busy during the NBA lockout by taking his act to the stage.

Artest said, “I was going to go overseas and keep it going [with basketball] and get a check, but the comedy shows are paying [as much as I would earn playing] overseas, so I can just stay over here and do comedy shows.”
