Metta World Peace is enamored by the current Lakers squad — telling TMZ Sports they’re a “bigger” sensation than his 2010 Championship team … at least right now.
“I think they’re bigger than us to tell you the truth,” Metta said … “They’re 24-6 at this point? They’re bigger than what we were at this point in the season.”
No shade … but Metta’s wrong.
The current Lakers are 24-7. During the 2009-10 run, Metta’s Lakers were 24-6 at this point.
Let’s do a squad vs. squad analysis.
2009-10 Lakers — Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Ron Artest, Derek Fisher, Lamar Odom, Shannon Brown, Andrew Bynum.
2019-20 Lakers — LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Dwight Howard, Kyle Kuzma, JaVale McGee, Danny Green, Rajon Rondo.
Of course, Metta’s squad went on to beat the Boston Celtics in 7 games. Kobe was the series MVP.
For what it’s worth, Metta thinks LeBron’s Lakers will win it all this season — “I think so. I know so!”
First, the Lakers gotta get by Portland on Saturday. Stay tuned …
