Dave McMenamin's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
Metta World Peace is a big fan of LeBron, in part because James' dad and MWP's brother were in jail together ...
"I never did (talk to LeBron about it)," World Peace said. "But (James' father and World Peace's older brother) were in there together, federal prison. That’s why I always understood LeBron.
"So, I would never tweet LeBron because I’m a groupie fan. I’m super competitive. When I’m on that court, if you’re even my brother you might get an elbow to the ribs. Elton (Brand) probably got an elbow to the ribs before. That’s my best friend.
"So. it’s not like I’m a super groupie fan (of LeBron’s), but when people would talk about him I know what he’s been through. He’s making these decisions for a reason and he’s doing as best as he could with his career. That’s why I’m a fan. I know exactly that type of lifestyle that (he’s) been through and he’s similar to the situation that I’m in, he’s turned it around. Or he made the best of it."
