He takes it even further though, telling our photog he probably wouldn’t get on bended knee either if he was still playing. Always keeping it real. According to Metta, the dude’s entitled to his opinion. 8/1/2020 11:48 AM PT

YOU WON'T SEE ME KNEELING

Metta World Peace doesn’t knock Jonathan Isaac for not kneeling for Black Lives Matter — in fact, he says he’d probably do the same thing if he was still in the league. Metta World Peace attended a protest today. Metta’s view seems to echo what Charles Barkley said earlier this week — guys not kneeling doesn’t necessarily make them bad people. Metta tries explaining his rationale, saying he doesn’t want to kneel for his enemy. (NSFW) pic.twitter.com/fo74StQ2pG— Legion Hoops (@LegionHoops) June 4, 2020

It sounds like he does support BLM — shoot, we’ve seen the guy at protests early and often — but it could be that he just doesn’t believe in kneeling for anyone or any cause, period. MWP was at LAX Friday night when he dished his thoughts on the controversy — namely, that the Orlando Magic player was the only one so far to not kneel during the National Anthem. BTW, watch to see what MWP has to say about this year’s champion and whether there should be an asterisk around whoever wins. Hard to say what he means, but we’ll let him explain. He says not at all, and tells us why. Jonathan said he wouldn’t kneel because it went against his Christian beliefs.
