Metta World Peace is still confident in his team. In an interview with USA Today’s Jeff Zillgitt about the team and his role within it, he said:
“I’m ready for whatever’s presented,” he said. “I had a pretty good preseason, and I was playing really consistent. I felt I was doing enough to prove that I was ready. Not to prove, because I don’t have anything to prove anymore. This team is stacked. I knew that. I knew I was going to play behind (Carmelo Anthony). I didn’t expect to play as much as four. I thought they’d be playing ‘Melo a little bit more. I knew coming into the season that it wasn’t going to be the same but I was ready.”
I think I understand what Mr. Peace was trying to say. I don’t expect him to say the team isn’t good (at least not publicly) but saying the team is stacked is a bit of a stretch.
You have to love the confidence but no team where the star player says the team is a laughingstock can be stacked.
