Jason WhitneyMetta World Peace thinks Steve Nash should do magic tricks in Vegas
I’m all for watching Steve Nash perform tricks on the hardwood floor, but now I thinking this new idea by Peace may have just one-upped watching Nash and his creative genius at work on the hoops floor. Metta World Peace thinks that Steve Nash is so good on the offensive end, that there could be a smooth transition over to the magician field.
Peace goes onto explain that he doesn’t get back on defense half the time because he is still processing the offensive wizardry performed by Nash when the Lakers score.
“Half of the time, I don’t get back on defense after we just scored,” World Peace said. “I’m wondering what just happened.”
Then it gets really interesting. See Metta goes into detail of what he sees going on if Steve Nash ever took his suggestion seriously.
“Nash should do a Vegas magic show,” the Lakers forward said. “They should put his picture on the Flamingo hotel with a picture of him posing spinning the ball with his tongue out. There could be a bunch of strippers around him naked covering themselves with a hat.”

Former Laker Smush Parker, upon hearing Kobe Bryant ripped him by calling him "the worst," Parker fired back, referring to Kobe as a "diva."
Metta World Peace, the guy formerly known as Ron Artest, Says some off the wall things at times.
I’m starting to think he has a fondness for his new point guard Steve Nash based off some of those type of comments.
Last week Metta jokingly tweeted that Nash is the smartest Laker because he is white.
Now World Peace has a new complimentary idea for Nash.
Nash has earned the reputation...
Ramon Sessions opted out of his contract with the Lakers, at least in part, because he had concerns that they might acquire Steve Nash or Deron Williams in a sign-and-trade.
Kobe Bryant struggled to contain his laughter.
Following practice Friday at the Lakers' training facility in El Segundo, reporters wasted no time informing him that Smush Parker was offended about comments Bryant made regarding why his former teammate doesn't belong in the NBA.
"There's really nothing else to say," Bryant said with a smirk. "I said what...
Dwight Howard's back was hurting last season. Badly.

"What a lot of people don't know is when I hurt my back, it affected my nerves to the point where my whole left leg just went dead basically," the Lakers center said Thursday. "I couldn't do a calf raise."
After undergoing surgery...
Earlier this week, it was reported that Lakers' Jordan Hill had a herniated disk. He had experienced the pain after the first preseason game but the status for future procedures was uncertain at that time. After being re-evaluated, Hill will not need surgery thanks to some advice given to him by newcomer Dwight Howard.On the topic of Dwight, Hill said,"He had a short little...
Back on Friday, we featured a story about Kobe Bryant ripping into members of the 2005-2006 Los Angeles Lakers including point guard Smush Parker who he called, "the worst ever".As you may figure, Parker became a hot topic and joined the folks over at the Hard 2 Guard radio to discuss Kobe's comments:“I’m lost for words. It makes me blush. For my name to still come...
Throughout the Dwight-mare drama that went on all of last season was an injured Dwight Howard whose back injury did more than harm his back. Mike Bresnahan of the LA Times interviewed Dwight Howard who said that his back injury affected a nerve that affected his entire left leg."What a lot of people don't know is when I hurt my back, it affected my nerves to the point...
Back in the grand NBA season that was 2005-2006, Kobe Bryant nearly won the MVP and almost helped the Lakers upset the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the playoffs.That Lakers squad wasn't exactly the greatest of all-time and included such notable members like Brian Cook, Chris Mihm, Kwame Brown, and Smush Parker.

Recently, Kobe Bryant indicated that Dwight Howard needed to step up his a$$hole game to get to the next level in the NBA. “Shaq was a goofball. But Shaq was a big a——. I was a little a——. It worked well. Dwight has a lot of that in him. He just needs to bring it [...]
Damian Lillard had 14 points and seven assists in his first NBA action, and the Portland Trail Blazers capitalized on the absences of Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard for a 93-75 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in a preseason game Wednesday night.
LaMarcus Aldridge added 14 points and eight rebounds for the Blazers in their preseason opener under new coach Terry Stotts.
Let’s assume Vegas odd makers are never wrong and they always correctly pick the favorites to be in the NBA Finals. That will mean the 2013 NBA Finals will pit Kobe Bryant and his Los Angeles Lakers against LeBron James and his Miami Heat.
If this happens, no NBA Finals will ever match such hype, excitement, and star power. You’d have to go back to the 1980s when Magic Johnson...
