Nash is smartest player on the Lakers because he’s white
This comes right from the Twitter account of Los Angeles Times Lakers blogger Mark Medina. I don’t really know how Metta World Peace said this or if he was laughing when he said it, but with him you never know.
Apparently, someone asked Metta World Peace if newly acquired guard Steve Nash was the smartest guy on the team. His answer referred to his ethnic background.
“Metta World Peace was asked if Steve Nash is the smartest player on the Lakers: “He’s white, so probably yes.”,” Medina tweets.
He has to be kidding…one would think. Metta is very good at stirring the pot and that is probably what he’s doing here. Still, as a white person I’m outraged? How dare he say we’re smart? I’m angry?
This is a non-story other than Metta just continues to be Ron Artest.
