According to LA Times Lakers blogger Mark Medina, World Peace was asked if Steve Nash is the smartest Lakers. He had a classic response.
“He’s white, so probably yes.”
There’s a reason he’s called the “Lakers idiot.” Nobody will complain about the joke because World Peace was paying whites a compliment with the stereotypical response, but that’s pretty inappropriate.
Let me just flip the script on you for a second: What would the reaction be if someone said Metta World Peace is the dumbest Laker because he’s black? It’s never a good idea to make generalizations about any group of people.
