Metta World Peace says the Lakers are going to the Finals
Metta World Peace thinks the Lakers will be in the Finals this season. Wait, what?
Speaking at a promotional event for his children's book in New York, World Peace predicted that the Lakers would be making a trip to the Finals.
"I think the Lakers are going to go to the NBA Finals," World Peace said, via ESPN New York. "I think Kobe [Bryant's] gonna be healthy, they're gonna get Pau [Gasol]. The Lakers are gonna make a big trade like they always do. They're gonna get another good player, boom, boom, and they're gonna go to the Finals. I believe it. Kobe's gonna come back, he's gonna play team ball, and Pau's gonna play well."
Picking the Lakers, historically speaking, is typically a good idea. But this year? They just lost Dwight Howard, Kobe is coming off a major injury and the rest of the roster isn't all that great. It's a bit of a reach to have them in the playoffs, much less the Finals.
