If Metta World Peace is going to feed reporters after a simple win over the Atlanta Hawks in early March, just imagine what he'll do once they find their way into the playoffs.

The Los Angeles Lakers finally found themselves back up to .500 with a 99-98 win over the Hawks, on Sunday, leading to a lot of jubilation from the Lakers' locker room.

While they didn't exactly go as far as to spray champagne all over each other, but there were a few smiles to be had here and there.

That, and World Peace invited a hoard of reporters to his house to enjoy some post-game sushi

There's still no word on who actually went out to have a bite at Metta's house, but the fact that anybody could turn the offer down would be totally beyond comprehension.

It's not the most outlandish thing World Peace has ever done by a long shot, but it's just another fun occurrence in a line of quirks that has been his long, strange career.

This is the side of World Peace that makes us love him, and it's a sign that appears more and more often these days.

Sure, there are still the instances in which he'll elbow James Harden in the head or punch Brandon Knight, but those are now specific instances, not a line of aggression that carries over from game-to-game.

Metta is the guy we see more often, he just needs to do his best to keep Ron Artest hidden.
