Ron Artest To Be On Dancing With The Stars?
Ron Artest aka Metta World Peace is in talks with Dancing with the Stars producers about competing on the show’s fall season. The uncertainty around the NBA’s 2011-12 season presents an interesting dilemma as the Dancing with the Stars season does not end until November; the Los Angeles Lakers season is scheduled to start on November 1. The NBA season starting on time looks doubtful.
The Dancing with the Stars producers are “desperate for A-list talent … so there will be NO minimum rehearsal requirement next season” a report says.
Athletes have historically done very well on Dancing with the Stars as Emmitt Smith, Apolo Anton Ohno, Helio Castroneves, Kristi Yamaguchi, Shawn Johnson and Hines Ward have all won the competition, and Jerry Rice, Jason Taylor, Warren Sapp and Evan Lysacek have all placed second.
