Appearing as himself on a talk show, World Peace was asked to what he attributed winning the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award during the 2010-11 season.
“For one, I stopped drinking alcohol during games,” World Peace deadpanned.
He also addressed whether the Lakers were done, though the question was presumably asked long before their first 0-3 start since the 1978-79 season.
“I don't think we're done,” World Peace said. “I think we're just beginning. We're going to have a great off-season and we're going to be just fine.”
If this keeps up, it will be an early off-season.
A pleasant diversion
Homes were flooded and millions of people remained without power in the Northeast on Friday in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy.
The New York Knicks provided momentary solace with their words and their play during a 104-84 victory over the defending champion Miami Heat.
Carmelo Anthony thanked the sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden for coming to the game in a pregame speech and then dropped 30 points and 10 rebounds on the Heat.
“They rarely hear from us about how we feel in situations like this,” Anthony told reporters after the game. “It was only right, me being one of the leaders on this team, to step up and give the fans some words.”
