Metta World Peace returned to action last night, just 12 days after undergoing knee surgery. How was he able to do this? He has a simple explanation.
“Well, you know, I’m just too sexy for my cat,” he said in a televised post-game interview following the Lakers’ 104-96 victory over the Hornets at the Staples Center on Tuesday night. “I’m too sexy for my cat. My cat. I’m just too sexy for my cat. If I wasn’t as sexy for my cat, I probably wouldn’t have came back. I’m so sexy, I came back. Too sexy for my cat, too sexy to wear a sleeve or a bracelet [on my knee], so I had to come back. I felt sexy, I felt like my team was working, I felt like we wanted it. We just wanted to come together collectively. Play hard, do it together. … I’m definitely too sexy for my cat, definitely, we know that. I’m also too tough to let a meniscus surgery keep me out for six weeks. I’m too sexy for the cat.”
Never change, man. Never change.
