Fox Sports Reporting Some Lakers Want to End World Peace
“There are a lot of guys in here who’d just like to see him gone,” one player told FOXSportsWest.com on the condition of anonymity. “I think we’d definitely be a better team if everyone didn’t have to walk on eggshells when he’s around.”
As we mentioned yesterday, Metta has started to let it be known that he is unhappy with his playing time. Despite his poor offensive output this season, he believes that his defense is more than enough to warrant him the important minutes in crunch time.
A lot of fans can see the passion that flows through Metta’s veins and have appreciated all that he’s done since joining the purple & gold – put-back shots, momentum shifting three-pointers, key steals & solid defense. Off the court, Metta has morphed into an engaging and big supporter of community and charity events.
But at the end of the day, most Lakers fans are all about “what have you done for me lately?” So, fair or not fair, the reality is that Metta hasn’t done much this season on the court.
Just another item to add to the long list of things to do for Lakers management and coaching staff.
