At this point, you have to wonder why NBA teams keep staying at the Skirvin Hilton in Oklahoma City. The hotel’s haunted history is well-documented, and then there’s the time that Kyrie Irving stayed up all night because he was getting bitten by bed bugs.

Now Lakers veteran Metta World Peace, known for his stoic, serious nature, says he was felt up by a ghost. From the Orange County Register:

“The ghosts were all over me. I just accepted it,” Lakers forward Metta World Peace said. “They touched me all over the place. I’m taking one of the ghosts to court for touching me in the wrong places.”

World Peace insisted he was serious before explaining why he did not stay somewhere else.

“I was watching a good movie and I was tired,” said World Peace, who incidentally said he saw “Money Monster.” “I didn’t want to move.”

This is what happens when you don’t have Kobe Bryant around to intimidate the ghosts into staying away.
