Metta World Peace weighs in on the Kobe Bryant-Dwight Howard situation
Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace talked about the Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard situation, and had some interesting comments. Peace, who recently signed with the New York Knicks, believes that Kobe Bryant will play three more years now that Dwight has decided to take his talents to Houston. But that’s not all, according to Peace, he believed that Howard was going to leave for Houston to play for the Rockets all along.

“I always knew Dwight was going to Houston. Things weren’t clicking,” World Peace said recently at Universal Studios where he filmed a segment with the Hallmark Channel’s “Home and Family slated to air today at 10 a.m. “Once Kobe said he could come back for three years, I knew Dwight was going to Houston.”
Peace felt that Dwight wasn’t comfortable and things never clicked in Los Angeles. In fact, once Kobe talked about playing for another three years, he knew it was only a matter of time before Dwight was gone.
“It’s not about being the guy,” World Peace said. “It’s about clicking. Dwight never wanted to be the guy. Dwight did have some flaws just like anybody. Everybody has flaws. But Dwight just wanted to be comfortable. He wasn’t comfortable [here]. But once that happened [with Bryant’s comments], I knew Dwight wasn’t coming back. I knew he wasn’t going to come back.”
