Lakers Rumors & News Recap: Happy Labor Day, If You’re World Peace

Metta, Metta, Metta… never change. My favorite Laker goof made my Twitter day this morning when he wished his followers a Happy Labor Day. At first I didn’t believe my eyes, but then upon further inspecting the fury of retweets, replys and Twitter buzz, I knew World Peace had made a hilarious mistake.

In other Metta News, our Lakers man made an appearance in the Drew League yesterday for a team called the Money Gang. Making sure to take some time off from season, World Peace still wanted to maintain his basketball game and decided to play in the league even though it was so close to the Lakers playoff loss a few weeks ago.

In further news, the very beloved Jerry West turns 74 today. Make sure to send out some happy birthday vibes for this Lakers legend.
