Metta World Peace: ‘LeBron's Lakers Are 'Bigger' Than Kobe's’

Publish date:


The 2019/20 Los Angeles Lakers are doing pretty good things so far this season. Despite having lost their last four games, the Lakers find themselves in a good position with the best record of the West (24-7).

They are enchanting everybody around the league and even a former Laker has stated how big they are. Metta World Peace can’t be more in love with these Lakers, as he considers they are ‘bigger’ than his 2010 championship team, at least at this part of the season.

"I think they're bigger than us to tell you the truth," Metta told TMZ Sports. "They're 24-6 at this point? They're bigger than what we were at this point in the season."

Even though he wanted to compliment this team, his claims aren’t exactly right. The current Lakers are 24-7. During the 2009-10 run, Metta's Lakers were 24-6 at the same stage of the season.

That year the Purple and Gold beat their archrivals, the Boston Celtics with Kobe winning the Finals MVP.

As for right now, Metta believes the Lakers have the tools to win the championship this campaign:

"I think so. I know so!” he added.

Before all of that happens, the team needs to get things back on track and figure out what they will do against their city rival Clippers, who are their biggest rivals for the title and have beaten them twice this term.
