Metta World Peace: “I can’t see nobody getting past us”

Metta World Peace has never been one to shy away from conflict. On the court, MWP has clearly never backed down from an opponent  (James Harden elbow and the Malice at the Palace).

During an interview with ESPN Los Angeles with Max and Marcellus, Metta World Peace was asked about LeBron James and Kevin Durant working out together. Here’s how the interview went down:

What he makes of LeBron James and Kevin Durant working out together:

“I think that was brilliant. I wish I could’ve participated in that but they’re Nike guys and Nike guys like to stick together. I wish I could’ve participated in that. They’re going to come back so much better I can imagine. I can imagine they’re going to come back so much better than they were last year.”

If he thinks players can learn things from each other by working out against each other:

“Somebody definitely could learn some information but the way the Lakers look initially I can’t see nobody getting past us at all so I don’t think they’re going to have a chance to see each other in the Championship.”

What he thinks about the team possibly not having Dwight Howard at the start of Training Camp:

“We definitely want to beat the Bulls record and go 73-9, that’s definitely something that I want to do. Whoever is out there at the beginning of the season then we gotta get it. It’s as simple as that. We just have to go get it.

Metta also added that he is definitely one of the best players in the NBA and one of the greatest defensive players of all time.
It’s hard to argue with World Peace’s initial argument that the Lakers look like the team to beat in the NBA. Even with a starting lineup of Nash, Bryant, MWP, Gasol and Howard, a 73-win season seems a bit far fetched.
