One of the most "badass" Lakers ever. Thank you MWP! I'll never forget you sinking the Suns and the Celtics within the same playoff year.

Thank you Metta for being the only other Laker on the roster other than Kobe to give it 110% EVERY single game of the Regular Season and playoffs. Your strength, passion and toughness will be sorely missed.

If this is true... I'm bummed. The guy is and was always heart, effort, and spirit personified. We do not win 2010 without him. Remember his put back against Phoenix. Good luck Ron. Your veteran presence will hopefully put another team over the top. A player worthy to don the purple and gold.

He was a true Laker mentally and physically tough. I think this means will be getting a superstar sf next year.

Metta gave the Lakers their 16 banner. I'll always love that guy for that.

Moment of silence for the Champion.


Metta Ron, you are the effing man. True to your core, no fake about you. And clutch as hell in that title run (the rebound putback against the Suns, the DAGGER three in Game 7).

Nobody does it better...can't slow you down can't stop you never.

Also, not many better at the post game interview.

Will miss you Ron, always been one of my favorite Lakers of all-time. Had been hoping you'd become a Laker since your days with CHI/Indy. Best of luck, thank you for Game 7.

He would have been great if he was more intelligent.

Bye Ron, thanks for the memories (the good ones).

Before Ron came to the team I had serious doubts about his character and whether or not he could control his mental side. After his years here I have no doubt he was truly a great fit for this team and I am deeply saddened at the thought of him leaving. I know business is business and this is a good business decision. But in terms of guys you want when you need someone to have your back, MWP is irreplaceable.

premature thread. There have been no confirmations of him being amnestied. This is just Kevin Ding spewing guesses.

I changed my mind.... I will discuss with Jim.

Now that Lamar is likely coming back, his momma in law is driving a hard bargain.

One of my all time favorite lakers. Gave his all every single game. I would love for him to stay with the team in a different role than as a player. I'd want him as a player as long as he does not play small forward.

I really love ron. Wheaties speach is the best. He was just an otherwordly beast in the 2010 playoffs. People forget the three series before the celtics, but ron did everything he could to help us win. Even ruined our team and then two seconds later rescued it. Haha.

It's really unfortunate that father age caught up with him after his first year. But it never caught up with his heart.

True laker.

It's never premature for a thread expressing the fans' appreciation for a member of the team.

Whether he stays or is amnestied by the front office, I still appreciate Metta.
