Athletes are at their best in the offseason. Let's celebrate their antics.
On May 21, the Los Angeles Lakers were knocked out of the NBA playoffs. Here's what Metta World Peace tweeted about the outcome the next morning:
Not the ending we wanted. The team that played together won! Congrats OKC.Laker fans thanks for your support:)

Disappointed, but classy. A great gesture to the better team. One would assume Metta would take a little time to get out of his funk, but that would be far from the truth. Lest we forget, the NBA season is Ron-Ron's offseason. The period of time not playing professional basketball is his true time to shine.
