Jarrett Jack put a nasty crossover on Metta World Peace Friday that was so sick it dropped the Lakers forward to his butt. Metta was totally wrong-footed on the play and wasn’t able to gain his balance, leaving him to fall on his backside.
Part of the issue may be that World Peace’s left knee isn’t in as good of condition as he’s let on. He returned less than two weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. If his knee were in more stable condition, he probably would not have fallen the way he did.
If it’s any consolation to Metta, here’s a video of Jack getting crossed over by Steve Nash in the preseason:
