Derrick Rose’s sob story puts last nail in this Knicks experiment

Derrick Rose’s sob story puts last nail in this Knicks experiment

This was a nice try. It was. Part of building a team is taking a risk with this guy, a chance with that guy. The Bulls took a shot with Dennis Rodman once, and Phil Jackson himself can tell you how well that turned out. The Lakers took a flier on Metta World Peace once....
Lakers' Thomas Robinson, Metta World Peace to have guaranteed contracts

Lakers' Thomas Robinson, Metta World Peace to have guaranteed contracts

LOS ANGELES – As the Lakers aim to develop their young roster, they have decided to retain an emerging young forward and a veteran fan favorite. The Lakers plan to keep reserve forwards Thomas Robinson and Metta World Peace past Jan. 10 when their...
Lakers guarantee Metta World Peace and Thomas Robinson’s contracts

Lakers guarantee Metta World Peace and Thomas Robinson’s contracts

One of those things is a smart decision. Saturday afternoon was the last day to waive players whose contracts were not guaranteed before they became such and the Los Angeles Lakers did not waive anyone, giving Metta World Peace and Thomas Robinson have plenty of reason to celebrate. Before I get into analyzing the lack of a decision on those two, I do want to point out how cool a moment like that must be. So, congratulations to both Peace and Robinson on what just became a pretty cool day. Now, with that out of the way... Metta World Peace should not be on an NBA roster in 2017. There’s...

Luke Walton wants Metta World Peace to remain with Lakers

Coach Luke Walton pointed at Metta World Peace and Lakers fans erupted. World Peace jumped off the bench to enter Friday’s game with 2:12 left during a 127-100 victory over the Miami Heat. Fans cheered his every move, which included three fouls, as though he had made a game-winning shot. “It was...
Will Lakers' Metta World Peace survive potential roster cuts?

Will Lakers' Metta World Peace survive potential roster cuts?

LOS ANGELES – The questions and laughter seemingly lasted forever. Before a road game last month, Metta World Peace’s teammates watched video clips of some of the physical altercations the former Ron Artest experienced in his NBA career. After...
Lakers will reportedly keep Thomas Robinson, may waive Metta World Peace

Lakers will reportedly keep Thomas Robinson, may waive Metta World Peace

World Peace may not exist in Los Angeles after Saturday. The final chance NBA teams have to cut contracts that aren’t full guaranteed is officially January 10th, but as Bobby Marks of the Vertical notes, the effective deadline is January 7th at 5 p.m. ET because they have to allow 48-hours for the players to clear waivers. The Los Angeles Lakers have two such players on their roster: forwards Thomas Robinson and Metta World Peace. While Robinson has earned a role in the Lakers’ rotation (in part due to injuries and partially due to his own play), World Peace has played just 71 minutes...

Lakers' Metta World Peace getting more involved in boxing as a manager

During a fight this fall, boxer Pablo Rubio dressed in purple and gold. It wasn’t an homage to his favorite basketball team — he doesn’t really follow sports other than boxing. Rather, it was a nod to his manager, Metta World Peace. “I’ve been into boxing since I was a kid,” World Peace said. “My...

Metta World Peace says he stopped having sex on the road so he could play better

Metta World Peace says he stopped having sex on the road so he could play better

He also eats healthier now, but that’s a less fun headline. One of the many important changes in the new NBA collective bargaining agreement are efforts to further reduce the number of back-to-back games NBA players play. Those contests often feature sloppy play from tired players just looking to make it out of the game without an injury, and have become a talking point in recent weeks as more and more players sit out of the first or second night of the sequences in order to preserve their health. Scott Cacciola of the New York Times wrote a story on back-to-backs, including details on...
