I seriously propose that Metta World Peace be awarded the title of World’s Most Interesting Man. He’s our only hope to survive the offseason. Imagine a children’s book writer who brawls with fans and takes vodka shots at halftime. And by the way, his name is Metta World Peace.
Of course, MWP will have his own take on the Dwight Howard saga. From his point of view, he has a “firm grip” on Dwight, that he absolutely cannot leave. Let’s give the People’s Most Interesting Man a chance to elaborate.
per CSN Houston:
Metta World Peace joined Sportsradio 610 foran entertaining interview that touched upon the topic of Dwight Howard’s upcoming free agency.
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.”
After massive laughter, Sportsradio 610’s Mike Meltser asked, “So you think Dwight is definitely staying in LA?”
“He can’t move,” World Peace answered. “If he does, it’ll be painful. So he can’t go nowhere.”
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.”
The Rockets have been mentioned as a potential serious candidate to make a push for Howard when free agency begins in July.
