Metta World Peace: I'm a 'worthless servant' [Video]
Metta World Peace apparently is not upset with his new role of coming off the bench.
In fact, he's so happy to be a Laker that he said he would do menial labor if it meant he could remain a part of the purple and gold.
He took to Twitter on Friday evening to express those sentiments.
Wrote World Peace: "Don't listen to people. I'm not happy coming off the bench. I am happy to be a part of the Lakers team period. Even if I was the water boy.
He didn't stop there.
"If I have to keep score, get the towels and clean the floor for my team I will," World Peace wrote. "If I have to shine shoes at the entrance and then sub in the game I will do that."
In a video interview with the Times before the Lakers played Denver, World Peace said he was quite aware of his standing in the L.A. basketball scene -- Kobe Bryant is the king and Blake Griffin is the prince.
When asked where he stands, he said that he's a "worthless servant."
World Peace is way humbler than Ron Artest, whom he acknowledged would not have viewed himself in those obsequious terms.
"Artest is different," World Peace said.
