Exclusive 060513_metta_launch
Lakers star Metta World Peace went out on a limb — making a bold prediction on who will win the NBA Finals … and then the limb snapped when he tried to spell his pick.

We”ll tell you this much … Metta”s riding with the San Antonio Spurs to take down LeBron James and the Miami Heat — but you gotta hear how he spells it.

He might have been joking, but then again …

Fun fact: Metta attended St. John”s University from 1997 to 1999, and majored in math.
