You never know what you're going to get with Metta World Peace.
With 1.2 seconds left in the game and the Lakers ahead by two, World Peace unleashed his inbounds pass to Matt Barnes. The only problem was that Barnes was in the backcourt with the Hornets' Jason Smith lurking. The pass was the strangest I've ever seen and left the announcers in complete shock as they watched it all unfold.
Highlights in the video:
- The smile on the face of Monty Williams as he gives up on diagramming a play.
- The Hornets players with their hands on their heads, also in shock at the play.
- The announcer's "I am in disbelief!"
MWP also had some advice for former teammate Lamar Odom. Earlier in the day it was announced that Odom and the Dallas Mavericks had worked out an agreement to go their separate ways. World Peace would like to see Odom back in Los Angeles, telling ESPN LA's Dave McMenamin:
"Maybe he can come back and be a ball boy and then next year, come play," World Peace said with a cat-that-ate-the-canary grin on his face following the Lakers' 93-91 win over the New Orleans Hornets on Monday. "That's what he should do. He'd be the first ball boy in the NBA that can play. Come back; get the towels and next year, play. Why not? He should be a scout. Lamar should be a scout."
And in the meantime?
"What's the biggest mountain in the world?" World Peace blurted out. "(Odom) should hike it. He should go hike it. Do something that's never been done."
