Lakers News: Metta World Peace ‘Definitely’ Interested In Coaching
Lakers News: Metta World Peace ‘definitely’ Interested In Coaching
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Before he signed a training camp contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, Metta World Peace was constantly at the team’s training facility working with prized forward Julius Randle.

World Peace used his years of experience to help out the young Randle over the summer and get him in the best shape possible for the upcoming season.

As it turns out, World Peace enjoys teaching and revealed in an interview with Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News that he has a serious interest in coaching:

“I want to coach one day. I definitely have interest in coaching. But I want people to know I’m staying in tip top shape. Just because I want to coach doesn’t mean I’m retiring […] My goal is one day to be a head coach for a couple of years. I don’t want a 20-year coaching career. Maybe 5 or 10 years. I want to win a championship.”

While he obviously would love to be in the NBA from day one, World Peace says he isn’t afraid to work his way up from the D-League or start as an assistant coach:

“If a head coaching job is available and they’d offer it, absolutely. We’ll look at it. If another thing opened up, we’ll definitely look at it. I’m not afraid of doing this. I’m totally not afraid of it […] I’m not afraid to take on any head coaching job. I’m very very confident. I’m very confident.”

It wasn’t too long ago that World Peace was out of the NBA, but he returned this year and has played surprisingly well for the Lakers. His intelligence has served him well this season and he wants to impart that on the younger players which could work.

A few years ago, nobody would ever expect that World Peace could be a coach in the NBA, but now it doesn’t seem like too far-fetched of an idea and World Peace roaming the sidelines of an NBA team could be a possibility.

first thing that comes to mind is, cool just fire scott and have metta coach the rest of THIS season

  • Lol wouldn’t that be some sh**? I bet they’d be better than they are now, I hate this princeton bs. I think Metta would teach the triangle like Fisher does in NY, Kobe would be so much more efficient in that system, and of course the whole team would benefit from that. *sigh* A man can dream.

  • Never really known as a high IQ player, but I think he would be great for player development.

  • Metta never really understood the Triangle offense according to Phil. So I doubt it lol.

  • Not sure how accurate this rumor may be but if a trade or two happens it may be best to wait till mid January to make a few trades happen. By then Lakers likely be (8-34).

  • Okaaay… so LN doesn’t work with Chrome anymore. That’s just fukking
    great as that’s my main browser. So here I am, Firefoxing it up! For
    fuxx sake LN, stop acting like our beloved team and fix this shee-ate!

  • LOL. Had to add a “g” to “fukking” to pass it through Reetawrd filter.

  • So Russell and Randle got benched… lol. I am actually starting to hate my own team.

  • Randle and D B*** are bench players!
    There’s no potential in these core players!
    They better trade those D league players for at least something in the off season!

    Byron Scott is a champion!

  • Last season we had “Linsanity”. This season it’s pure INSANITY. WTF is going on? There must be a lot of that blue meth passed around in the coach’s office…

  • Mark Medina ‏@MarkG_Medina 6 min

    D’Angelo Russell on bench role: “I started to figure it out and then this happened.”

  • Lakers are so bad!

    You couldn’t even pick a proper starting player in the draft.

    Goodluck with you Kobe farewell tour. Faker fans were saying Kobe deserves it! If you guys like seeing a guy bricking 15+ shots a game then it’s all good!

    Next season will be another tank season since you’re not developing any cores this season!

    I bet Ed Davis,Lin and Hill are thanking their lucky stars for leaving this abomination of a team.

    I don’t get why so many of you Faker fans are complaining about Byron Scott when you said he never had a chance with the “bad” roster last season. Now he’s barely 20 games in and every fb page are Faker fans crying!

    Faker fans will always hypocrites and delusional!

  • how bout this next season:

    HC: Luke Walton(not byron)
    Asst. Coach: MWP
    Consultant: Kobe Bryant
