Metta World Peace had some interesting thoughts on Kobe's farewell tour, thinks the Lakers can still make the playoffs


Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Metta World Peace has had an up close and personal look at the unofficial Kobe Bryant farewell tour with the Los Angeles Lakers. He has seen Kobe presented with video tributes, jerseys, and even witnessed a black mamba get named after the man they call "The Black Mamba." The always quotable Lakers forward had some words to describe these mass displays of affection, and those words are not safe for work. All children and people prone to immature giggling fits should leave now.

"It's amazing," World Peace told Michael Grange of Rogers Sportsnet after the Lakers' loss to the Toronto Raptors." "It's like they're horny for it. Horny fans... Make sure you word that right."

Unfortunately for Metta, I'm not sure that there is a right way one can word that, but it is probably World Peace's funniest quote so far during his second go around with the Lakers. Somehow it was still not his craziest quote of the night though. That "honor" belonged to this gem:

The Lakers are not mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. They don't, however, have a chance.
