Someone had to be the first to go, and unfortunately Metta World Peace, the NBA player formerly known as Ron Artest, wasn’t as successful on the dance floor as he is on the basketball court. The L.A. Laker and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd were the first couple to be eliminated on Season 13 of Dancing With the Stars.
Metta and Peta’s Cha Cha Monday night landed them at the bottom of the leader border with a judges score. 14/30.
“All I want to know is, who’s coming with me?” Metta said in an upbeat tone after his elimination.
In the bottom two with Metta was Nancy Grace and her partner Tristan MacManus.
In his obligatory elimination appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, the 31-year-old baller admitted he’d “never seen a full episode” of the ABC hit dancing competition before his casting.
