It wouldn’t be a month here at That NBA Lottery Pick without at least one post about New York Knicks forward Metta World Peace and this one might be a positive for you, Lakers fans.
Check out this quote that Metta said during a recent book signing to ESPN New York’s Mike Mazzeo about the Lakers going back to the NBA Finals this upcoming season:
“I think the Lakers are going to go to the NBA Finals,” World Peace said during a signing for his children’s book “Metta’s Bedtime Stories” in downtown Manhattan on Wednesday.
“I think Kobe [Bryant’s] gonna be healthy, they’re gonna get Pau [Gasol]. The Lakers are gonna make a big trade like they always do. They’re gonna get another good player, boom, boom, and they’re gonna go to the Finals. I believe it. Kobe’s gonna come back, he’s gonna play team ball, and Pau’s gonna play well.”
We will have to wait and see if Metta is right or not…
