Metta and Kobe are cut from the same cloth of determination and crazy drive. Metta isn't as offensively gifted though.

But him and Kobe have the same mindset.

He's running already?! Wow..

In terms of work ethic and determination Ron comes closest, Kobe has said this and stated its the reason he loves the guy. Even when they were fighting each other and Ron was on the Rockets after the series they'd hang at Kobe's house and have dinner.

Kobe loves Metta because of his work ethic and crazy determination, he's the only other guy that comes close, in Kobe's mind that's why he wanted him on the team. Along with his toughness and defense.

D'Antoni: Lakers dropped Metta World Peace's return timetable to 4-6 weeks (instead of 6 weeks). Means he could be back by end of month.

The coincidence is , if we make the playoffs then most probably we're meeting Oklahoma, and Metta's presence is vital but unlikely.

Breaking News: Metta could return early as FRIDAY...


Metta whom was projected to be out so long after surgery that he'd be out the rest of the season and possibly the first round of the playoffs... May return Friday..

Rather amazingly, @MettaWorldPeace (knee) could play one week from today vs. Spurs. Lakers need defense, and ...

Metta's accelerated recovery from surgery for torn cartilage in his left knee is such that it's not even impossible that he returns Friday vs. Golden State, which is the third-to-last game of the regular season.

Metta will run at 90 percent body weight tomorrow and then ramp that up to 100 percent Tuesday. He already started shooting yesterday and today. If no complications by Wednesday, maybe a good individual workout Thursday and the game Friday vs. the Warriors.

Mike D'Antoni obviously expects Metta back soon, lumping him and Steve Nash together in saying the Lakers will get guys back and not have to continue to play this limited rotation. The initial projection for Metta was that he'd definitely miss at least the first round of the playoffs.

While you obviously may be annoyed with Metta's at time iso-offense, you cannot deny that the Lakers miss his physicality and presence and the small lineup(both Metta and Clark out) forces Kobe to play 47 minutes a night(which he has requested) Metta's quick return would be appreciated.

From missing the first round of the playoffs to potentially playing this friday..

Wow...the Hulk does heal fast.

Cool, hopefully he's not too rusty, especially with that 3PT shot.

I get frustrated with Metta sometimes because of his decision making, but I absolutely love him otherwise. He's tough, doesn't give up, and has a great work ethic.
