World Peace scored 20 points on seven-for-18 shooting, including a huge three-pointer with 1:01 left in the 2010 NBA Finals to help cement the win that clinched the Lakers’ most recent championship.
His postgame news conference was an all-time classic. His play with the Lakers through four seasons wasn’t always consistent but World Peace was a locker-room favorite among teammates and the media.
On Thursday, the Lakers made a difficult business decision, choosing to save about $15 million by waiving World Peace through the amnesty process.
