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.
“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.”
