We recently sat down with former NBA Champion and 2004 Defensive Player of the Year Metta World Peace to talk about his current project and reminisce over his playing career.

The man formerly known as Ron Artest was a fierce competitor over his 17-year career with six different teams (that included two stints with the Lakers), enjoying probably his finest season in 2003-04, when in addition to taking home Defensive Player of the Year honours, he was an All-Star, made the All-NBA third team and enjoyed his first of two appearances on the NBA All-Defensive First Team. For those of you too young to have seen World Peace play, here’s a taste in the video below.

He was surprisingly candid with us, opening up about some of the regrets from his playing days, but he’s come a long way in retirement, and is clearly in a better place now, ready to give back to the game he so clearly loves.

We covered a wide range of topics, including:

  • Where there’s a fit for XvsX Sports’ proposed semi-pro league;
  • How recreational players will really benefit from his new app;
  • How grateful and fortunate he feels to be involved in basketball again;
  • His regrets over all the fines he got dinged with during his NBA career;
  • How much he wishes he could go back in time and learn under Kawhi Leonard; and
  • Some of the impressive list of those who have invested in his app.

RotoRob Tune of the Day

Choosing a tune for this article was a slam dunk. We’ve got to go with the official video to one of Metta’s own tracks, “Represented,” which closes with him offering a testimonial to one of his favourite products!

Interview: Jerry Rollins

Jerry really has a fascinating tale to tell, going from high school dropout to the man who started the classic ’70s brawl in the video below, to a powerhouse CEO that is sought by top executives to help them lead their businesses. His book is easy to digest, filled with entertaining anecdotes and truly aspirational. It should be required reading for anyone in a leadership position or those who desire to achieve that level.

Interview: Chase Day

May 4, 2020 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off on Interview: Chase Day
In having his Pro Day cancelled, the Louisiana-Monroe fifth year senior missed a golden opportunity to show NFL scouts what he can do. And this was only exacerbated by the fact that he wasn’t invited to the NFL Combine. So when Day ran a 4.48 40-year dash — a time that would have ranked third among the over 40 linebackers that participated in the Combine — it flew under the radar, and he went undrafted as a result.
