Metta World Peace Says Gregg Popovich Could Win Coaching Five Old Ladies
You can always count on Lakers forward Metta World Peace to drop an interesting rap line or hilarious quote. The Lakers and Spurs are set to do battle in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
World Peace was asked if he thought his Lakers caught a break when they avoided Oklahoma City in the first round. World Peace would have none of that talk, and as he told USA Today, Spurs head coach “Greg Popovich could be successful coaching five old ladies.”
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.”
Popovich is an amazing coach yes, and Metta World Peace is amazing with his words.
