The game of basketball is a universal language. And a record of 30 points on November 14th translates to a personal career high for Metta World Peace’s performance in the Chinese Basketball Association.
In this highlights video with over 8,500 views, Metta, who just celebrated his 35th birthday, is playing with great vitality. Yes, it’s not an NBA game but seeing an offensive side to the defense dominate small forward is refreshing to watch. I like that he is taking the open lane and going for the jump shots with an average of 23.3 points a game.
He is even wearing a #37 jersey, the same number he wore in his first year with the Los Angeles Lakers. But, one thing is for sure, if he keeps playing like this then he has many more years ahead of him. Not just two more, because I predict that he won’t be stopping at 37.
