A couple of weeks ago we brought you a story that Ron Artest (aka Metta World Peace) was seriously thinking about competing in ABC’s hit T.V. show “Dancing with the Stars”

Reports said that Artest and “Dancing” producers have been in touch to reach a possible deal, yet nothing was official.

Artest had this to say when we asked him at Matt Barnes 3rd annual Athletes vs. Cancer event at Trump National.

“Nah I’m not doing that. People want me to, but I’m not. I like that show though!”

While some may be relieved, others are sure to be disappointed. One thing is for sure: An appearance would have been instant entertainment!
