PLAYERS: Steve Nash
TEAMS: Los Angeles Lakers

Via Larry Brown Sports:

Metta World Peace is already in awe of Steve Nash. When talking to reporters recently about his new teammate, World Peace spoke about how he has trouble figuring out what’s happening on the court with Nash running the offense because everything happens so quickly.

“Half of the time, I don’t get back on defense after we just scored,” Metta said according to the LA Times. “I’m wondering what just happened.”

While confused, World Peace said he is amazed with what Nash can do with the ball. He’s so impressed that he thinks Nash deserves to be his own show, and he described the type of show it should be in a way that only MWP could.

“Nash should do a Vegas magic show,” World Peace 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.”

For those of you who have to hear the artist formerly known as Ron Artest actually saying these insane things, the video is available here. When asked for his response to MWP’s suggestion, Nash simply smiled and said he doesn’t know where he comes up with these things. He also said World Peace should have his own show. How about they both get a show together?
