PLAYERS: Steve Nash
TEAMS: Los Angeles Lakers
Metta World Peace is an aspiring comedian, so he was probably joking when he made a crack about Steve Nash being the smartest Laker. According to LA Times Lakers blogger Mark Medina, World Peace was asked if Steve Nash is the smartest Lakers. He had a classic response.“He’s white, so probably yes.”There’s a reason he’s called the “Lakers idiot.” Nobody will complain about the joke because World Peace was paying whites a compliment with the stereotypical response, but that’s pretty inappropriate. Let me just flip the script on you for a second: What would the reaction be if someone said Metta World Peace is the dumbest Laker because he’s black? It’s never a good idea to make generalizations about any group of people. Chest bump to Black Sports Online

Gortat: 'I'm going to be fine' without Nash

PHOENIX -- Based on suggestions from the barking dogs of pessimism, the Phoenix Suns must replace a Hall-of-Fame point guard and their starting center. Steve Nash and his more conventional haircut have left for Los Angeles. Marcin Gortat, according to Nash-as-Geppetto theory, will be returning to mediocrity. But the 28-year-old Gortat, who produced career highs in points (15.4...

Metta World Peace just speaks his mind

I don’t like having the ball....
