The Los Angeles Lakers are off to a quick and promising start to the NBA playoffs with a 2-0 lead over the Denver Nuggets in the first round. There is a good possibility that the Lakers could keep up this momentum, pull off the sweep and cruise into the second round to face either the defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks or the up-and-coming Oklahoma City Thunder.
Fortunately, the Lakers have been successful in the aftermath of the Metta World Peace suspension and appear to be legitimate NBA title contenders. Despite that being the case so far, this team can’t wait to get World Peace back in the lineup to improve the squad on both ends of the floor.
With four more games to go before he can get back on the floor, World Peace has stayed positive and fairly active off the court. Over the past week, the veteran forward has taken 100 fans to the movies to watch ‘Think Like a Man’ and hosted a playoff party in a special location for the same number of the Lakers faithful.
It was announced by TBS on Thursday that World Peace will appear on the late night talk show ‘Conan’ on Monday night to talk with host Conan O’Brien. This will be the first interview World Peace will be conducting since being suspended by the league for the vicious elbow given to the Thunder’s James Harden.
O’Brien will no doubt bring up the topic of the elbow and suspension, and whether or not World Peace felt he was in the wrong. The Lakers forward has already claimed responsibility by saying that it was wrong in every way, but it’ll be interesting to see where the interview goes with World Peace’s unpredictability.
