Metta World Peace: Drake should be new Raptors’ coach


Drake already has a courtside seat, then stands and paces constantly along the sidelines yelling at the referees during Raptors games. His designer clothes cost more than most coaches’ suits.

So why not make Drake the Raptors’ coach?

Laugh if you want, but when TMZ threw this at Metta World Peace in Los Angeles, he thought it could work.

“If he had the right staff, he could do it. Yeah, he should do it. I think he could do it.”

Just to state the obvious, this would be a pair of Bad Idea Jeans. As would letting Metta coach the team, although he said he’d talk to them if the Raptors’ called.

The Raptors fired Dwane Casey as coach Friday, despite him leading them to a franchise-record 59 wins last regular season and being voted Coach of the Year by his peers. Toronto needs to shake things up after being swept by LeBron James and the Cavaliers, the Raptors’ roster will be difficult to change because it is capped out (and nobody is taking Serge Ibaka off their hands), so the coach gets the ax. Reports are GM Masai Ujiri wants former Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer, but around the league most teams expect them to stay in-house and hire Nick Nurse or another assistant.

World Peace is keeping busy, he is a player development coach with the Lakers’ G-League squad the South Bay Lakers, and he has a new autobiography coming out next week (more on that in the coming days). He’s still famous enough to get harassed by TMZ while walking down an L.A. street.

Good idea!

Drake would mold them into a full-blown trash heap in less than a full season; I'm all for it.

If Donald Trump can run this country, Drake can coach the Raptors and you can be an astronaut

Yes, we should keep the politics out of the non politics threads, even the relatively minor jabs.
