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 for being a magician when he handles the ball, and according to Pro Basketball Talk, World Peace took the Magic thing to a whole other level.
“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.”
Interpret that however you may, just remember who the comment came from.
