Metta World Peace says the Lakers shouldn’t have traded future ‘superstar’ Brandon Ingram for DeMarcus Cousins

Metta World Peace says the Lakers shouldn’t have traded future ‘superstar’ Brandon Ingram for DeMarcus Cousins

Strong stuff from World Peace in the wake of Sunday night’s trade rumors. The Los Angeles Lakers were widely reported to be in talks to trade for Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins before he was ultimately dealt to the New Orleans Pelicans. The (reported) hangup? The Lakers didn’t want to include 2017 second-overall pick Brandon Ingram. According to at least one member of the Lakers, that was the right call. “Absolutely not. I like Brandon, and I think he’s going to be a superstar. I like who we have on the Lakers,” World Peace said on “Undisputed” when asked whether or...

Two of Los Angeles’ vets showed off their flow on national TV. Anyone who thought Nick Young, D’Angelo Russell, and Brandon Ingram were going to be the Los Angeles Lakers’ only representatives at NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans were wrong. A few of the Lakers’ bench players also got a chance to show a national audience their stuff. Lakers reserves Metta World Peace and Lou Williams also got to show off their off the court skills on TNT’s NBA Talent show on Saturday, with both deciding to drop bars (video courtesy of TNT): Sweet Lou went in on "Top Back" for the NBA Talent...

Lakers’ Metta World Peace Reflects On Knicks Tenure, NBA Future [Exclusive]

If you exclude James Dolan’s publicity stunt on Sunday, bringing back numerous ex-Knicks to join him courtside, Metta World Peace was the only former Knicks employee to get a warm reception at Madison Square Garden last week. The 37-year-old veteran entered last Monday’s contest for the Lakers in the final minute with L.A. holding a 119-107 lead over the Knicks. World Peace promptly hit a knockdown jumper over Carmelo Anthony, the final points for the Lakers on the evening. The Garden erupted with chants of “MVP! MVP! MVP!” for the Queensbridge native. It’s been a whirlwind...

Metta World Peace thinks the Lakers should’ve been the fourth seed in the Western Conference

Um... Sure. Judging by social media and their televised post-game press conferences, the Los Angeles Lakers’ win had the team in high spirits in the locker room following the victory. Multiple members of the team lauded the new and improved ball movement, continuing to repeat how good the team could be if they played like this all of the time. The Lakers were so good, in fact, that they were able to establish a big enough lead that head coach Luke Walton was able to insert New York native Metta World Peace for some garbage time as the clock ran out on the game. World Peace playing time...

Lakers 121, Knicks 107: Scenes from a dramatic Metta World Peace cameo

As for the game itself...it was bad. Do you like the Knicks? So do I. What the hell is wrong with us? New York had precious few winnable games left before the All-Star break. Monday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers was supposed to be one of them. SIKE! The Lakers pounced on the Knicks from the beginning, led by 12 after the first quarter, and straight-up punked the ‘Bockers, 121-107. Los Angeles had lost their previous 12 consecutive games on the road. The only drama left in the second half was whether or not New York hoops legend Metta World Peace would check into the game. He...
