Dave McMenamin's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Metta World Peace was in rare form last night. Here are the hilarious highlights (Part 2) ...
5. On what the secret was to his speedy recovery: "My knee wanted to play. My knee said, 'Let's go.' My knee was talking to me at night ... My knee was like, 'Go. Get up and go. Stop playing.'"
6. Having fun with a neophyte reporter: "(First addressing the other reporters) She totally wrote that question! (Then speaking to the newbie) I'm just playing with you. I'm a loser so, it's OK. You're interviewing a loser, but it's OK."
7. When he heard Kobe's phone alarm going off when Bryant was away from his locker: "That phone is annoying me. Let's start this over. We're going to rewind that. I'm going to give you a good answer. That's so annoying. That's Kobe's phone? I can't focus. I can't focus. That sound is annoying."
8. More communicating with his knee: "My knee was like, 'Don't worry. Just keep going.' My knee was talking to me. My knee talked. My knee was just like, 'You know what? You're doing good. You're doing good, Metta.' My knee calls me, 'Metta.' It said, 'You're doing good, Metta. Just keep going, keep working, keep working and just stay ready. Just be ready to go. Don't worry about me.' My knee said, 'Don't worry about me.' Because I was worried about my knee. I was like, 'Knee, are you alright?' And my knee said, 'Hey don't worry about me. I'm alright.' We talk, we bond. I said, 'It don't feel alright. It's kind of sore right now.' My knee said, 'Stop acting like a little wuss and play.' So I did. So I played."
