I'm really liking what I'm seeing from MWP. He looks skinnier, fitter, and faster than last year. He ran around last year like his feet were bothering him, like he was using all thighs and no calves to run. He looks like he's running more naturally now. His shooting motion is much smoother. He's been active on defense. He looks really good.

His back was bothering him actually.

Will anyone in the NBA see more open 3 point shots than Ron this season? I think he's really going to make the league pay this year on both sides of the ball. His shot looks a lot better. He's so much quicker and he's still strong as an ox, even after shedding the weight. It's nice to see him hungry for another title run and focused. Hopefully he'll keep his eye on the prize, he's admitted that sometimes he has a hard time getting psyched up for the lesser matchups. I think having Dwight patrolling the paint and energizing the team will certainly help in that regard.

I was thinking about his interview the other night when John Ireland asked him who is the better defender Dwight or himself.

He answered, and it looked like he was really kind of shocked by the question at first. He's always thought of himself as the best defender in the league, and here's a guy that has the biggest defensive impact in the league on his team. Where does that leave him?

I'm thinking he's going to have to really balance himself here. He's going to have so many opportunities to shine because he's the lesser of all the evils, but he's also going to have to learn to remain humble. His answer to the question was "Dwight is a terrific defender and he's the defensive leader of the team."

He didn't say "I'm the best defender," but he didn't not say it either. I'm thinking he's going to have to balance that confidence with a measure of humility so that he can play within the offense and within himself. I think he's going to do that and be a terrific spark. Multiple times this year on national tv you'll hear "The Lakers don't have a Big Four, they've got a Big FIVE".

METTA WORLD PEACE STARRING IN A LIFETIME MOVIE WRITTEN BY NANCY GRACE. THIS IS NOT MAD LIBS.
10/24/2012


Image
“Ladies and gentleman of the jury, I’ve prepared this rap song as my final argument. *ahem* …”

Metta World Peace [formerly Ron Artest] is starring in a Lifetime Movie written by Nancy Grace. Yes, you read that correctly. World Peace– oh screw it, he’s not Muhammad Ali — Artest told Dave and Jeff on XX Sports Radio in San Diego yesterday:

“I met Nancy Grace on the set of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ and … she really liked the way that I was acting on the show, which is acting kind of silly. But I’m a pretty decent actor and she just picked me for the part. I was like, ‘Wow.’ There was no way I was turning it down.” [SportsRadioInterviews via Deadspin]


Image

Well sure, you might expect a guy named “Metta World Peace” to babble about something like this, just as you might expect him to wear a cheeseburger on his head and complain to a mailbox that his underwear keeps telling him to kill the president, but the surprising part is, it’s all basically true. Nancy Grace is producing a Lifetime film that airs next month, which, sadly, isn’t called Too Fat To Kill or Crock Pot Wife Killer. It’s called The Eleventh Victim, and though it’s actually not being written by Nancy Grace, it is based on a novel by Nancy Grace. Oh yes, Nancy Grace wrote a novel.

As a young psychology student, Hailey Dean’s world explodes when Will, her fianc, [sic] is murdered just weeks before their wedding. Reeling, she fights back the only way she knows how: In court, prosecuting violent crime…putting away the bad guys one rapist, doper, and killer at a time.


Welcome to the retarded circus mirror that is Nancy Grace’s life refracted through the mind of Nancy Grace. Playing the part of “Hailey?” Jennie Garth from 90210, of course. “Hailey Dean was the best prosecutor in town, and so pretty, everyone said, farting rose petals and prancing through the snow like a pony….”

But dedicating her life to justice takes a toll after years of courtroom battles and the endless tide of victims calling out from crime scene photos and autopsy tables. Just as she grows truly weary, a serial killer unlike any other she’s encountered begins to stalk the city of Atlanta, targeting young prostitutes, each horrific murder bearing his own unique mark. This courtroom battle will be her last.

Hailey heads for Manhattan to pick up the pieces of the life she had before Will’s murder, training as a therapist. In a vibrant new world, she finally leaves her ghosts behind. But then her own clients are brutally murdered one by one by a copycat using the same M.O. as the Atlanta killer she hunted down years before. As the body count rises across Manhattan, Hailey is forced to match wits not only against a killer, but the famed NYPD.

Unless she returns to her former life and solves the case, still more innocent people will die at the hands of a killer who plans to get her, before she can get him! [Amazon]


Wow, you couldn’t write that. I mean, you couldn’t write the part where Nancy Grace wrote a self-flattering supermarket mcnovel and got Ron Artest to star in it because they were both on Dancing with the Stars, that is. Not the actual novel, you could definitely write that. A one-eyed lemur with Down Syndrome could write that novel, if it lacked the self-awareness.

he didnt shoot well. he def brought the energy and you could tell he was hustling out there. but he was playing outside his role. without kobe and dwight and pau being passive for the entire game minus a solid little run he went on; metta was the scoring option for the team. he can make most the "normal" shots hes taking and post ups but it'll be when kobe and dwight are on the floor and hes the guy forgotten about....a good place to be in for a ball player imo.

he'll shoot fine this year for us i believe but hes gotta get that finger healed. prob had something to do with some of the shots not falling that normally would.

Metta has crazy averages through the pre-season. He literally fills the stat sheet...

10.7 points though. That's what I love.

I said it during the offseason. SF is our biggest weakness; He's not a good fit for Nash or this team right now; he needs to be on the bench. We need a SF like a Danny Granger; shoot well from three, handle the ball well, create his own shot, etc.

For the starters, most likely, but for the whole team, I still think backup PG is suspect to say the least.
