There were rumors earlier today that some current Los Angeles Lakers players did not want Metta World Peace around for much longer. World Peace has a history of problems, and it seems as though these Lakers are facing the same issues as World Peace’s former teammates.
However, World Peace fired back at the report and tweeted that there are no problems in the Lakers’ locker-room.
Don’t believe the media. Lakers are fine. Me and coach have great relationship. Once we get use to each other –(wins on wins on wins)

World Peace helped the Lakers win the 2010 NBA Finals, and his Game 7 performance was perhaps his best game as a member of the team. However, since then, World Peace has struggled mightily and has not been the same player as he was in years past. His outside shot is no longer a threat and at times his defense is not very dangerous.
This season, World Peace has been averaging 4.7 points, 2.6 rebounds and 19 percent shooting from three-point range per game.
