Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace says his overall drop off in performance from last year to this season is a result with his overall boredom in playing defense, according to the Los Angeles Times.
"I got bored with defense because it was so easy for me to stop people over the years," World Peace told the Los Angeles Times. "I just got bored with it." Over the course of his career, Artest has averaged 14.5 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. This year, however, the 32-year-old has posted a career low 5.3 points and 2.6 rebounds per contest.
