Sixers vs. Lakers Game Thread: Two Minutes' Hate

BOOOOOOO! BOOOOOOO! BOOOOOO! - USA TODAY Sports

Dwight Howard? Kobe Bryant? Metta World Peace? I sense a cathartic spewing of vitriol that would make Emmanuel Goldstein blanch.

Here's some belated Christmas music for you Metta World Peace fans:

You're a mean one, Ron Artest.
You chose a stupid name.
You're a senseless, noisy nuisance and you play a senseless game,
Ron Ar-teeeeest.

You're a foul one, Ron Artest.
You made me turn to pills.
You make me want to punch someone, just like in Auburn Hills,
Ron Ar-teeeest.

You're a rotter, Ron Artest.
Your heart's an empty hole.
To avoid having to watch you, I would tongue-bathe Pau Gasol,
Ron Ar-teeeeest.

You've managed to be the most enragingly despicable character on a team with Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard. And given the choice between the three of you, I'd take a seasick crocodile.

You nauseate me, Ron Artest.
With a nauseous super "naus."
You smell like a rotting onion and you make me very cross,
Ron Ar-teeeest.
