Laker forward Metta World Peace would probably still be playing basketball this Memorial Day, but that was not meant to be.
Instead of taking three-point jumpers and hustling for loose balls, the NBA star, formerly known as Ron Artest, today acknowledged to his 38,122 followers a detail about Memorial Day he never knew before.
I just found out the difference between religious and national holidays..I was a math major.. History , reading etc..were my bad subjects— Metta WorldPeace (@MettaWorldPeace) May 28, 2012
The Laker fan favorite went on to tweet, "I learned more today about memorial day than I learned in school. Never listened in history class..."
