Metta World Peace Heads to New York; Knicks Take Huge Step Backward
There are some players who should just stay away from the New York media. Players like: Tim Tebow, Plaxico Burress and Alex Rodriguez were all ruined by the annoying spotlight that shines on athletes in the Big Apple. With that being said, Metta World Peace could easily be a bigger failure in NY than all three of those players put together.
The New York Knicks signed the man formerly known as Ron Artest to a two-year deal worth $3.2 million. Don’t let the minimal price fool you, this move is probably the worst move that the Knicks could have made this offseason — unless of course they brought the NBA‘s biggest idiot in Tyrus Thomas to town.
At 33 years old, World Peace has shown signs of slowing down and only shot 40% from the field in 2012 which is one of the lowest marks in his 14-year career. Snagging an aging player, who has had issues off of the field in recent years makes little to no sense. With this idiotic move, the Knicks now have four players on their current roster who are over the age of 30 and all are going to play significant minutes this season.
Go ahead — convince yourself that the Knicks needed a defensive stopper, but in all reality this move only creates issues for New York. Not to mention, the headache that World Peace is going to cause in the Big Apple is going to make what Dennis Rodman did with the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s seem tame.
