Metta World Peace Says He Popped Something in His Fibula Earlier This Season

Following his 22-point performance last night, during which he shot 10 of 13 from the field, Metta World Peace said that he credits the sterling shooting to his improving health. MWP claims that he had kept a serious-sounding leg injury secret. Per the LA Daily News: “I didn’t want to make no excuses,’ World Peace said, ‘But I popped something in my [right] fibula, but it didn’t tear.’ This injury apparently happened in the Lakers’ 116-101 loss Jan. 11 to the Oklahoma City Thunder two days after experiencing an injury two days earlier in San Antonio. ‘I took a charge from what’s his name?’ World Peace asked a small group of reporters. ‘Big white guy from San Antonio?’ That would be Spurs center Tiago Splitter. ‘Yeah, Splitter. He kneed me right here in my [right] pelvis,’ World Peace said. ‘Most injuries come from when your pelvis is out of line. Some people don’t know that.’ That apparently contributed to World Peace’s injury against the Thunder. ‘They cause most ACL tears and Achilles stuff. When your pelvis is out of line, it pulls on something else,’ World Peace said. ‘Your pelvis must be aligned and it prevents so many injuries. Luckily I didn’t pop. Luckily I didn’t tear nothing.’ World Peace somehow knew this despite the uncertainty on whether he received an MRI or underwent any other exam with the Lakers’ training staff to confirm this. ‘They tested it so there was no need,’ World Peace said. ‘I think I might have gotten an MRI. I can’t remember. Maybe I did.’”

  • dwade flops so hard

    he is an idiot. ‘he popped his fibula, but it didnt tear’.

    does he know the fibula is a bone, and bones are not prone to tearing?

    He’s having a real nice year. Don’t worry bout the shooting percentage with this guy.
    He brings more intangibles than people realize I think.
    He turns it up a notch in the playoffs too.

    He can’t remember if he got an MRI. That’s typically something to remember if it happened only 2 months ago, isn’t it?

    So easy to spot him on the court as the guy who is running awkwardly

  • LakeShow

    lol okay…

  • LakeShow

    You typically wouldn’t run in the stands after a fan during a professorial basketball game in which your playing would you?..
    Ron Artest man…

    You don’t agree that he has the awkwardest running motion ever?

  • LakeShow

    Didn’t say I didn’t. Just don’t know what that has to do with anything…

    Have you noticed Al Jeffersons nose?! Tehhehe

  • bike

    He takes a charge from a big white guy who’s name he can’t remember, claims his pelvis gets knocked out of line, waxes poetic about the problems associated with a misaligned pelvis, talks about tearing a bone for crissake, and can’t remember if he had an MRI to even diagnose the injury.

    Wow. Just fuck’n wow.

  • Caboose

    When his career is over, I really want SLAM to run a special video/quote article that just highlights all the most ridiculous sh*t he’s said and done.

  • ratguts

    all of his motions are strange, he’ll dribble drive with his elbows locked and knees fully bent.

  • ‘Bout It

    I mean, if I’m a professional basketball player and a fan throws a beer on me and I have Stephen “Bout Dis Life” Jackson with me… I can’t say for sure what happens. But that’s just me.
