Metta World Peace is now a member of the New York Knicks, but his heart still seems to be stuck in Los Angeles. World Peace, who gets a kick out of trolling folks, says that the Lakers will be in the Finals this season.

I think the Lakers are going to go to the NBA Finals,” World Peace said during a signing for his children’s book Metta’s Bedtime Stories in downtown Manhattan on Wednesday.

“I think Kobe [Bryant's] gonna be healthy, they’re gonna get Pau [Gasol]. The Lakers are gonna make a big trade like they always do. They’re gonna get another good player, boom, boom, and they’re gonna go to the Finals. I believe it. Kobe’s gonna come back, he’s gonna play team ball, and Pau’s gonna play well.”

I think World Peace is trying to move on with grace, but he can’t possibly believe that statement, can he?
