Metta World Peace Rocks Subway From Queensbridge to MSG Debut
- Updated: October 31, 2013
I’ve got to admit it. Misguided or not, the signing of Metta World Peace was by far my favorite move Knicks move this offseason. Sure, he promises some occasionally unwanted entertainment (although he guarantees some high-quality comedic relief too). And, yes, he’s getting older and his health worries me. That said, it’s great to see Ron come home. The guy can still play defense. He’ll bang for boards. He can knock down a three. He gives you some more badly needed toughness and that often impossible-to-quantify veteran savvy. I just loved it all the way around. I loved this too.
Metta eschewed a limo or tinted SUV to travel in anonymity to his MSG debut. Instead, he gathered up some of his boys from Queensbridge and hopped on the subway.
Great stuff. Hope the man stays healthy. If he does, I have little doubt he can be a major asset to this 2013-14 Knicks crew.
