Steve Nash continues to confuse, confound and consternate the man, the myth and the legend of wild pressers, Metta World Peace. 

We completely understand his plight. When you've been playing with an old Derek Fisher or Steve Blake, Steve Nash must seem like the wizard Merlin on the court. 

That's pretty much what Metta World Peace would have you believe. 

Los Angeles Times blogger Mark Medina gives us a report that nearly seems like something The Onion would put together. The quotes from MWP are that perfect. 

At the heart of it all is World Peace being completely befuddled by his new buddy. 

Half of the time, I don't get back on defense after we just scored. I'm wondering what just happened.

Nash should do a Vegas magic show. They should put his picture on the Flamingo hotel with a picture of him posing spinning the ball with his tongue out. There could be a bunch of strippers around him naked covering themselves with a hat.

Lakers fans are used to World Peace looking confused on offense, but now they have an image of Nash as some sexy magician raking in the Vegas dollars. Not sure I feel all that comfortable about Nash now, or Vegas. 

The LA Times has video of the hamster wheel turning in MWP's mind. 

All of this comes on the heels of World Peace's initial thoughts on Nash. As USA Today reminds us, the Lakers' resident comedian sounded off earlier in the month about who the smartest player on the team was. 

World Peace thought it was Nash, because he is white. 

It's going to be quite the interesting season for the LA Lakers, because the preseason has been nothing short of bizarre.
