METTA WORLD PEACE
The Lakers' 33-year-old forward, a ringside regular, has been known to embrace combat. Now he's in a battle for his job: L.A. could amnesty the last year (and $7.7 million) of his contract for salary-cap relief.
DAN PATRICK: You were at the Floyd Mayweather--Robert Guerrero fight last weekend. How would you be as a boxer?
METTA WORLD PEACE: I'm pretty quick. I'm pretty tall. I would never give up. I think I'd be O.K.
DP: When's the last time you got punched?
MWP: I get elbowed a lot. [Laughs.]
DP: How would you describe this season with the Lakers?
MWP: It was unfortunate. We just couldn't capitalize on certain moments. I think we were talented enough to win, but injuries didn't help.
DP: What about Dwight Howard's season?
