Caldwell-Pope, who shot 4-for-6 from 3 on Friday and moved past Metta World Peace for ninth place on the Lakers’ all-time franchise list for 3-pointers made, was not ready to crown James as the team’s 3-point shooting king so long as he is involved. “Numbers don’t lie,” he said, alluding to the career-best 55.3% he’s shooting from 3 so far this season. “But I’m really enjoying LeBron shooting the ball. He’s shooting it at a tremendous clip. He’s knocking them down and it’s fun seeing him have [success] shooting the ball as well. But we all know, I’m the real shooter, for sure.”
Metta World Peace sure has a way with words. His unbridled vocabulary was on full display recently when he declared Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James as the GOAT, while also comparing him to extra-terrestrials. World Peace took to Twitter to make his bold claim: @KingJames is the goat. Never thought I would say that over my brother 24 and my favorite mj. I was an Allstar in mj Jersey 23. I changed my number for one season to honor a legend. But the King is the greatest athlete to ever touch this galaxy. Better than the aliens too
Storyline: GOAT Debate
That $42 million contract extension he was given by the Pacers in 2002, maybe it wasn’t worth it for the team. Maybe Indiana Pacers President Donnie Walsh, who spent hours in deep conversation with Artest, nurturing and comforting him through difficult times, should have given up on him. Maybe Walsh should have gotten another player, one who wouldn’t snap and erupt into violent outbursts. “They did have a special player, but the player they had wasn’t stable as a pro basketball player,” Metta Saniford-Artest (who changed his name from Metta World Peace in May after marrying Maya Sandiford) told IndyStar Wednesday. “In terms of talent they definitely got it right (with me). But I felt bad, wish it would have been someone else they had gotten so they could have won a title.”
To anyone else, peeking into Sandiford-Artest’s world in 2002, the words were ones NBA dreams are made of. Walsh looked at Sandiford-Artest, who was in his first season with the team, and told him he would do anything to keep him. “I remember Donnie Walsh telling me he wanted to give me the maximum dollar,” he said. “‘What any team wants for you, we are going to match it.'”Exhilaration didn’t follow. Instead, Sandiford-Artest felt disbelief. And then worse. “I actually panicked,” he said. “At that time, I was like, ‘Are you (expletive) kidding me?’ Sometimes, things cause you to self destruct, certain things.”
