Metta World Peace Calls Himself An ‘Alien’


On the meeting Knicks owner James Dolan held with the team before Thursday’s game, Metta World Peace offered no comment because he is “an alien.” Per ESPNNewYork:

ESPN.com’s Marc Stein reported earlier Friday that owner James Dolan met with the Knicks to inform them that there won’t be any forthcoming trades or coaching changes.

World Peace was asked about Dolan’s message to the players.

His response?

“I’m not a player, I’m an alien,” he said with a straight face. “I wasn’t actually there. I was in another galaxy with my galactic friends.”

World Peace was also asked about the idea that Mike Woodson deserves a chance to coach a healthy version of this Knicks team.

“My focus is on winning championships. I don’t focus on anything else. Aliens only want to win championships,” World Peace said. “That’s it. Injuries is not a focus. Trade talk is not a focus. Nothing is a focus. Gluten-free pasta is not a focus, which I would rather have gluten-free pasta. Hey, if I have to have regular pasta. … It is what it is. I’m still going to try to win a championship. Nothing will distract me from my focus, my galactic mind.”

    The life of a stoner NBA player. I hope they have an Open Court in 20 years with Mike Beasley, Ron, Rasheed, Cherokee (s)Parks, and GILBERT. With Yao as the moderater.

    First step is to admit it.

    Its these types of reports that lead me to believe Ron will inevitably be spending his time in a padded cell.


    If he used to drink hennessy at halftime, who knows what he does after the games/before practice

    He’s just saying he’s not going to get bothered by all this and to try keeping himself healthy to play. I’d respond the same way given the same situation.
