If we told you Metta World Peace recently said something crazy, would you really be all that surprised? Well, when discussing Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich and whether the Lakers caught a break getting San Antonio instead of Oklahoma City, MWP said the following:
No, no no no no no,” World Peace blubbered, his head shaking and eyebrows raised. “Not when you’ve got (Spurs coach Gregg) Popovich – uh uh uh uh uh. He’s amazing. That coach is something else. I just know he draws up plays where he could have five old ladies after they eat 14 boxes of chocolate chip cookies. He’ll put them on the court, and they’ll win. That’s how good Popovich is.”
Um, OK. Does Pop even say "thank you" to that?
