Roaches, road trips? It's all the same to Lakers' Metta World Peace [Video]

When asked Tuesday evening about the Lakers' impending six-game road trip, Metta World Peace started talking about roaches.

"I grew up around roaches," he said. "And it was bad. Too many of them. To many friends, yeah, in New York. I got a lot of roach friends.

I'd wake up, they'd wake up in my cereal. They'd wake up like, you know, just Ron what's up, good morning. One leg in my macaroni, the other leg in my corn. They just made themselves comfortable at my home."

Um, yeah.

Who are the lucky guys that get to sit next to him on the team plane? Andrew Bynum, Luke Walton and Steve Blake.

When asked what they talk about, World Peace didn't hesitate.

"Roaches," he said.
