Metta World Peace returned to the Lakers lineup Tuesday night to help L.A. drop New Orleans 104-96 and grab the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. MWP’s return is all the more surprising since it was just 12 days ago that the forward underwent knee surgery, making it seem as if World Peace’s recuperative powers border on the superhuman. But if you ask Metta, as one reporter did in the locker room following the win over the Hornets, his amazing recovery was due to one thing, and one thing only…being too sexy for his cat. Yep, you read that right. MWP said, tongue in cheek obviously, that his rapid return from knee surgery was due to being too sexy for his cat. Bonus points for the Right Said Fred reference—you haven’t heard the last of them! Here’s the full transcript of MWP’s bizarre answer (via The Point Forward)… “Well, you know, I’m just too sexy for my cat. I’m too sexy for my cat. My cat. I’m just too sexy for my cat. If I wasn’t as sexy for my cat, I probably wouldn’t have came back. I’m so sexy, I came back. Too sexy for my cat, too sexy to wear a sleeve or a bracelet [on my knee], so I had to come back. I felt sexy, I felt like my team was working, I felt like we wanted it. We just wanted to come together collectively. Play hard, do it together. … I’m definitely too sexy for my cat, definitely, we know that. I’m also too tough to let a meniscus surgery keep me out for six weeks. I’m too sexy for the cat.” Having never seen Metta World Peace’s feline friend, I’ll have to just go along with him on this point. How being too sexy for one’s cat hastens your return from knee surgery is beyond most people, but for MWP it’s apparently a tried and true formula. While getting this response from any other NBA player would immediately have people running for the phone to call the local mental health professionals, hearing it come from the mouth of the perpetually off-kilter Metta World Peace seems just about right, especially when you consider it’s not the weirdest soundbite he’s ever dropped in his 15 year NBA career.
