Metta World Peace opens up on eve of NBA Finals

By The Associated Press , Associated Press

Metta World Peace is happy, something he wasn't during most of his time in the NBA. He's also at peace with himself, he tells

The former Ron Artest joins co-hosts Tim Dahlberg and Jim Litke to talk about his career and his life after, and whether the 2010 Lakers he played on could have beaten the current Golden State Warriors.

World Peace credits intense therapy with helping him shed his anger and become not only a better person but a much better teammate. And he looks at the championship he won in Los Angeles at the defining moment of his career, not the brawl in Detroit that cost him $5 million, a one-year suspension and the scorn of fans everywhere.

The hosts also preview the NBA playoffs with Tim Reynolds, NBA writer for The Associated Press. And they talk soft food and why scrambled eggs might be the perfect food.
