The NBA preseason is all about finding your legs, getting acclimated to any new teammates and getting “your mack on” with women in the crowd. That’s exactly what the Lakers’ Metta World Peace is doing. Saturday night against the Jazz, MWP blocked a shot by Jazz forward Gordon Heyward into the crowd behind the basket. Ordinarily, you’d expect a defender to wag a finger or chest bump a teammate. If you’re scoring at home, MWP is as ordinary as A-Rod is clutch. He used the opportunity to get up close and personal with an unsuspecting Lakers fan.
The last time the man formerly known as Ron Artest entered the stands during a game, The Malice at the Palace took place. Maybe the name change has done him some good…
World Peace followed the ball into the stands and greeted the woman who caught the ball with a little kiss on the hand. Why’d MWP do it? ”I just saw in her eyes that she liked the hustle,” he said after the game. ”I saw it in her eyes. We made eye contact.” Shoot, A-Rod might be more clutch than MWP is ordinary…and we know the story with A-Rod’s playoff troubles.
