Lakers Podcast: Should Metta World Peace retire after his incredible night?

That was fun.

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Los Angeles Lakers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers entered Tuesday night with an excruciatingly tenuous hold on the chance of maybe tying the Phoenix Suns for the NBA’s second-worst record. Both teams’ games started at the same time.

Those chances went out the window rather quickly.

An hour and some change later, no one cared. Not even a little bit.

Metta World Peace played what will probably (read: hopefully) be his last game at Staples Center in a Laker (read: NBA) uniform. This isn’t meant negatively, more that it’s hard to think of any more incredible scenario than we saw last night.

I would’ve been remiss to not bring up the implications of last night’s outcomes. The Lakers are now firmly positioned in the third spot of the lottery with a 46.9 percent chance of keeping their pick.

On one hand, it’s a bummer to increase the probability of losing the lottery pick we trudged through this season for. On the other, there could be a sense of freedom that comes with getting to watch a game and not care about the tanking results.
