Interview with Metta World Peace: Knicks Memes Exclusive

Metta World Peace

On Tuesday morning, I got a chance to interview Metta World Peace over the phone. Metta, an NBA All-Star, Champion, and Defensive Player of the Year, had some great (and funny!) things to say. We talked about Pandas, name changes, Melo, the Knicks, teeth, China, shoes, Kobe, acting, wrestling bears, and more! Sit back, go ahead and give it a read, and enjoy!

Metta World Peace releases Panda Shoes, they must be destroyed

Panda Shoes

Yes, they are real. Metta World Peace plans on playing in China this season and, after considering changing his name to “Panda Friend” (which might still happen), Metta announced on Monday that he is going to be debuting two versions of a new signature shoe: “The Panda’s Friend.”

This has the potential to seriously change the shoe game. How will Jordan respond?

But seriously, this is real. And my analysis? “Only Metta… only Metta.” -Tommy

Amar’e Stoudemire and Jimmy Kimmel prank Metta World Peace

Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel and “Cousin Sal” to prank Stoudemire’s former teammate, Metta World Peace. The prank reached the point where Metta felt compelled to dial 911. Enjoy:

Does Metta Want Back In With Phil In Town?

Metta World Peace, who played (or rather, rode Coach Woodson’s bench) for the Knicks earlier this season before asking for a buyout and being released, reportedly wants back in now that Phil Jackson is running the team. This story first caught some eyes when Metta told reporters he “absolutely” would NOT have accepted a buyout had he known that Jackson— with whom World Peace won a ring while playing for the Lakers— was coming on board. Today, CBS and the NY Post are reporting that sources close to Metta claim that he “abso-bleeping-lutely” wants another shot with the Knicks next season. Metta knows how to play defense, which means he could fill a need for this team. Jackson has specifically complained on the Knicks’ lack of perimeter defense and proper footwork. With Phil in and Mike Woodson almost certainly on the way out, this could be worth watching.

BREAKING: Knicks Release World Peace, Udrih

Image

The Knicks announced that they have waived Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih. Both players had expressed displeasure with the team recently, and with the trade deadline in the rearview mirror, it makes sense to cut the two players, since, for whatever reason, the Knicks were set on never playing either of them. 

 

The team now has two open roster spots. Chris Smith, anybody? Just kidding. I hope.

Kenyon, Metta fight at practice? Not so fast…

Image

It had been reported a couple days ago on ESPN that Kenyon Martin and Metta World Peace got in a very heated argument during practice and had to be separated. While both players denied the incident ever happened, most were hesitant to believe them. However, Metta’s explanation seems at least somewhat plausible.

It’s a good thing that an actual fight never broke out because a Kenyon-Metta brawl would literally end the universe. Besides, Metta was totally out of line here— shell pasta is awesome, although it doesn’t surprise me that Metta prefers the “Elbow” Style…
