Former NBA player Metta World Peace said he was offered $35,000 to throw a game in college. 

World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, made the comments in a Yahoo Sports interview and talked about how he wasn't a fan of the new rule to make sports betting legal

World Peace said the scenario worries him, and called the guys betting "bullies." 

“But that’s the problem," he said. "They find these kids that don’t have any money, and they attack them. What if I was some kid that was a little scared, like, ‘OK, I’ll do it.’ That’s the problem I have with betting, because these guys who are betting, they’re bullies. Some of them are bullies. They’ll force a kid into a situation, and then when the kid’s trying to go to the NBA, they hold it against the kid.”

World Peace said they need harsh rules for situations involving kids. 

The former Lakers star attended St. Johns from 1997–1999.
