Doing crazy things is just something that Metta World Peace loves. It seems like every basketball season is filled with the veteran forward and his new crazy antics. A name change, an elbow to James Harden‘s face or a brawl in the stands against fans, this guy has done it all. He has seen a lot in his days in the NBA and it’s sad to see his career is winding down as he is getting near retirement age. The NBA star has finally done something out of the ordinary once again and it’s something that no other player in the league would do: ride the subway to his first game with the New York Knicks.

World Peace is a native of New York and he claims he used to ride the subway all the time. World Peace said he was upset when the Knicks didn’t draft him in 1999 and instead took a guy who never played a game for them.

This guy loves his city and he is extremely proud to call it home once again:

As you can see, New Yorkers have already taken to the basketball star as they surrounded him on the subway on the way to the game. It’s pretty cool to see something like this as World Peace interacted with the fans and wasn’t completely rude about all the attention he was getting.

Not many guys would take public transportation to their basketball games, but World Peace is something else. Let’s see if he does this every game.

Well done, Metta.
