Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace claims that he’s got a literal, and very painful hold on teammate Dwight Howard. MWP says he won’t allow Howard to bolt for the Houston Rockets once he becomes a free agent next month. Per CSN Houston (via Sportsradio 610): “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.’ [...] World Peace did give a somewhat more serious answer about Howard’s free agency later in the interview. ‘I’m not going to try to convince him,’ World Peace said. ‘But definitely, I enjoy him, no question about it. I’ll leave the convincing to the organization and to the fans. But for myself, I’m just working out and things like that, but I definitely enjoy him. He’s a great person. Whoever receives Dwight Howard, they’ll really enjoy their time with him. Hopefully, it’s with the Lakers, but whoever receives him will really enjoy their time.’”
