We’ll start with the most pertinent news to Lakers fan: the future of Metta World Peace. Depending on who you talk to, his future in LA is either ending within the next few weeks or he’ll play out his current contract. On Monday, it was the former that was reported. The move saves the Lakers a lot of money, but Metta is a fan favorite and one of the few talented wing players on a roster devoid of much talent at all.
The onslaught on Dwight Howard continued yesterday. First, a very NSFW video of Ice Cube hit the internet as he gave his take on Dwight Howard. We’ll just say he’s not a fan. Next, Kobe Bryant chimed in with his tweet directed at the former Laker. He, also, could be considered not a fan. And lastly, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar went no-holds barred on Howard. Can you say animosity?
