It’s always interesting to find out what types of other talents that musicians may have, Chris Brown is a great example of that as one of the best ballers from the music industry. You might wonder how good but former NBA star Metta World Peace believes that Brown would have been good enough to play in the NBA if he didn’t choose singing.
Metta World Peace recently joined Van Lathan on The Red Pill podcast where he spoke about entertainers and their ability on the basketball court. The conversation included Chris Brown where World Peace had a lot to say.
"I thought Chris Brown should have been in the league," World Peace told Lathan. "Before, 10 years ago when I was playing with Chris? Yeah, definitely. He was better than a lot of people."
The former NBA star then went on to describe the style of Chris Brown’s game in specifics.
"He was still young — didn't have a shot — but what young player has a shot?" World Peace said. "I like that he was very smooth... really good penetrator and really aggressive when attacking the basket. I thought he was one of the best ones I've seen."
It’s certainly something that’s intriguing to think about, there’s no doubt that Chris Brown has some impressive skills on the court but it would have still been quite tough to see him make the NBA. Brown is one of the most talented and well-known musicians in the business, it’s hard to see him having a better career in the NBA than his current one.
In the interview with Van Lathan, Metta World Peace also gave a shout out to the game and Young Buck as two others who could have had a life as a baller.
"Game didn't have any dribbling skills," Metta explained. "But he could get it in that block and Game would give you work in that block. You could throw it up anywhere to the Game 10 years ago and he'd catch it backward, do a windmill on a fast break... and Young Buck was a hell of a finisher too. I'm not going to say Young Buck could've made the league but you could throw it anywhere to Young Buck."
