Metta World Peace Doesn’t See ‘Anybody’ Getting Past the Lakers

With a revamped roster, the Los Angeles Lakers have the right to be confident—but we don’t know about this confident. When questioned by ESPN radio, Metta World Peace said he thinks L.A. is going to go all the way this season, and sounded absolutely positive about that fact.

More details, via ESPNLosAngeles:

“Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace joined the Max and Marcellus Show on 710 ESPN radio on Friday to discuss the team’s upcoming season and share his thoughts on the reconstructed roster. ‘With the way the Lakers are looking this year, I don’t see anybody getting past us this year at all,’ World Peace said. Despite the Lakers’ exit in the second round of the NBA playoffs last spring, World Peace says he believes the team developed good chemistry under coach Mike Brown. ‘Not only does he have confidence in his team, he also has confidence in himself,’ World Peace said. ‘I gotta trust in myself, trust in my teammates most importantly.'”
