Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace joined the Max and Marcellus Show on 710 ESPN radio on Friday to discuss the team's upcoming season and share his thoughts on the reconstructed roster.

"With the way the Lakers are looking this year, I don't see anybody getting past us this year at all," World Peace said.

Despite the Lakers' exit in the second round of the NBA playoffs last spring, World Peace says he believes the team developed good chemistry under coach Mike Brown.

"Not only does he have confidence in his team, he also has confidence in himself," World Peace said. "I gotta trust in myself, trust in my teammates most importantly."

World Peace also talked about what the addition of small forward Antawn Jamison will mean.

"I saw Jamison today," World Peace said. "People forget how much a great rebounder he is. He's one of the greatest rebounders of the game, he has the best touch out of everybody in the NBA, best touch out of all the big men in the game."
