Originally written June 22, 2013 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
One of the hot NBA rumors that has been circulating around the Interwebs is the possibility that Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard could be heading to play with the Houston Rockets. Back on Monday, Lakers teammate Metta World Peace was giving an interview to SportsRadio 610 in Houston about the possibility that Dwight might make the jump to Houston and well, Metta gave a very Metta response: When asked about the Lakers center who is about to be a free agent, World Peace said, “Well, he’s not going to Houston, I tell you that. “You know how those horses have those little things, ties in a bullfight, you tie those things to their b—- and they go crazy? I’ve got two of those tied to Dwight Howard’s t——–, so he can’t move.” After massive laughter, Sportsradio 610′s Mike Meltser asked, “So you think Dwight is definitely staying in LA?” “He can’t move,” World Peace answered. “If he does, it’ll be painful. So he can’t go nowhere.” If you want to hear the actual audio of the comments, you can hear it in the below video: If I was Dwight Howard, I wouldn’t screw around with Metta World Peace’s heart! *** Metta on Dwight, “He’s Not Going Anywhere” [CSN Houston] Top Image Courtesy of Associated Press
