Metta World Peace wants you to blame him if the new, star-studded, Lakers team does not win the championship next season. This isn’t the first time the enigmatic forward has made such a bold statement, but with new additions Steve Nash and Dwight Howard, the Lakers are primed to make another deep playoff run once again. World Peace has offered people the chance to kick him in a spot he says definitely hurts.
“If we don’t win, kick me in the L4 or L5 nerve. That’s right below your buttocks,” World Peace said at the Voice Awards Wednesday night at Paramount Studios where he was honored for his work with mental health charities. “You ever been kicked hard in the buttocks? Kick me right there.”
If the Lakers lose to the Thunder, James Harden may be the first in line for that free shot at Metta.
