the l.a. times’ melissa rohlin has a nice personality about her that makes it easy for athletes to want to talk with her. not every sports reporter has that.
meanwhile the lakers’ ron artest, sorry, Meta World Peace, has such a playful childlike personality that makes it easy for fans to want to listen to him. not every athlete has that.
yesterday they were both in the laker locker room and Peace dubbed Kobe the King of LA, the clippers’ Blake Griffin the Prince
and when Melissa asked him what he was, Meta said, “a worthless servant”.
its sweeter on video than it sounds in print.
