Metta World Peace is enamored by the present Lakers squad — telling TMZ Sports activities they are a “larger” sensation than his 2010 Championship group … not less than proper now.
“I believe they’re larger than us to let you know the reality,” Metta stated … “They’re 24-6 at this level? They’re larger than what we have been at this level within the season.”
No shade … however Metta’s mistaken.
The present Lakers are 24-7. Throughout the 2009-10 run, Metta’s Lakers have been 24-6 at this level.
Let’s do a squad vs. squad evaluation.
2009-10 Lakers — Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Ron Artest, Derek Fisher, Lamar Odom, Shannon Brown, Andrew Bynum.
2019-20 Lakers — LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Dwight Howard, Kyle Kuzma, JaVale McGee, Danny Inexperienced, Rajon Rondo.
After all, Metta’s squad went on to beat the Boston Celtics in 7 video games. Kobe was the collection MVP.
For what it is value, Metta thinks LeBron’s Lakers will win all of it this season — “I believe so. I do know so!”
First, the Lakers gotta get by Portland on Saturday. Keep tuned …
