Metta: I’m still one of the best small forwards in the world
Metta World Peace denied the rumors he is returning to the Lakers on a one-year deal. The forward started last season in China and finished it in Italy with Pallacanestro Cantù.
Per NY Daily News, USA Today reported that Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak is contemplating whether to bring him back. […] “Me and Mitch have a cool relationship but we have not talked about me coming back to the Lakers,” World Peace told the News. “I call Mitch about other things. We just have a good relationship. Whether I come to the Lakers or not, me and Mitch would still be cool.”
“I don’t really know, honestly,” he said of what he will do this coming season with training camp approaching. “I work out. I’m still one of the best small forwards in the world but my career has been up and down. With my career being up and down, some teams are like, ‘Can we use Metta World Peace, where is he going to fit in? Is he going to be good for the rookies? Can he still play?’ I’m still one of the best small forwards in the world so that’s not a question. But the question is can I actually fit into a team and can a coach coach me? Those are realistic questions and it’s cool. I still train to be one of the best.”
