Metta World Peace may have left LA for New York, but he still has plenty of love for his former Lakers teammates. Per ESPNNewYork: “‘I think the Lakers are going to go to the NBA Finals,’ World Peace said during a signing for his children’s book ‘Metta’s Bedtime Stories’ in downtown Manhattan on Wednesday. ‘I think Kobe [Bryant’s] gonna be healthy, they’re gonna get Pau [Gasol]. The Lakers are gonna make a big trade like they always do. They’re gonna get another good player, boom, boom, and they’re gonna go to the Finals. I believe it. Kobe’s gonna come back, he’s gonna play team ball, and Pau’s gonna play well.'”
