Video: Metta World Peace, friend of the roach

At this point in his life, it's no big deal to say that Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace is a weird guy. All we can do when discussing him is point out new incidents that add to his reputation, or try to figure out if what he's talking about even happened or if he's just playing to the cameras.

So, without further commentary, we present this video from Melissa Rohlin of the Los Angeles Times interviewing MWP. Rohlin asks how World Peace feels about road trips, which he hears as "roaches." Then things get weird from there, with everyone's favorite insane person talking at length about how he used to be friends with roaches while growing up in poverty in Queens. Somewhere, deep inside, there's a serious story here.
