Metta World Peace: Ghosts ‘touched me all over the place’


The Skirvin Hilton hotel in Oklahoma City is famous around the NBA.

However, it isn’t famous for its opulence, quality service are comfortable suites. Instead, it’s famous for being haunted and often tormenting the star basketball players who stay there.

Sometimes, those lingering in the afterlife at the hotel even get a little frisky.

According to Metta World Peace (previously Ron Artest), he experienced some unwanted contact by some of these spirits:

The ghosts were all over me. I just accepted it, They touched me all over the place. I’m taking one of the ghosts to court for touching me in the wrong places.

While many players would swear up and down that the hotel is haunted, coach Luke Walton isn’t as easy a sell.

Walton says he never encountered anything of the sort during his ten year playing career nor during his tenure coaching the Lakers. He continued by saying: “maybe some teammates drank too much and came back being loud a couple of times, but no ghosts.”
