The Los Angeles Lakers‘ luck still hasn’t seemed to turn around as they suffered their 23rd loss on Sunday to the Toronto Raptors. Moreover, the Lakers lost Dwight Howard just before halftime when Howard picked up his second technical foul of the game.
Howard picked up his first technical seven minutes into the game after missing a shot, then picked up his second after being involved in a minor altercation with Alan Anderson. Metta World Peace made his free throw shot, then Howard got tangled up with Anderson, which was enough for the official to hit him with another T.
We all know that
Ron Artest Metta World Peace isn’t the most mentally stable player in the NBA, but his latest prediction is just out there. He says that one of the goals for the Lakers this season is to eclipse the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls 72-10 record by going 73-9 in the upcoming season.
Metta World Peace apparently lives under a rock or in a cave, because he announced to the world on the Dan Patrick Show that the Lakers are the NBA’s best team. World Peace was asked what he would do if he was the general manager of the Lakers, he responded by saying that “We are the best team in the NBA. We don’t need no changes. I think we have the best team and even the time when we had Sasha (Vujacic) and Jordan Farmar and Josh Powell I thought we didn’t have to make changes and the same thing right now.”
When the Lakers and Thunder begin their second round series tomorrow night, don’t expect Metta World Peace to apologize to James Harden for the elbow heard round the world, that caused him to miss seven games, including six of the Lakers seven first round series with the Denver Nuggets. Back in full Ron Artest mode, told ESPN Los Angeles, that he “doesn’t shake hands substitutes’ hands,” this after his weird appearance on, Conan.
Metta World Peace will make his first one-on-one interview since his suspension tomorrow night (5/7) on ‘Conan.’ World Peace was originally scheduled to appear on the show last week, but was cancelled after the fallout from his suspension. USA Today, citing an e-mail from the show’s publicist, is reporting World Peace will indeed be on the show tomorrow night.
