Oh man. I included that "Metta World News" video in my last post as a reminder of the lovely things about the Knicks, but it should have been this one. The great Charlie Widdoes and Jonah Ballow of KnicksNow sat down with damn near every Knick to get a sense for what folks would be calling Metta World Peace (née Ron Artest) this season. Aside from being a lot of fun, this is really our first chance to lay eyes on the new team in one place:
- I like "Peace" and it makes perfect sense that that's what Amar'e Stoudemire would choose. I hope that headband isn't a permanent thing.
- Hadn't occurred to me that both Beno Udrih and Tyson Chandler had played with...Metta...before.
- "Duct Tape". Nah.
- <3<3<3<3<3 "I will sit with him and say 'eh, my friend, tell me how you like, you know, we call you'". <3<3<3<3<3
- Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo. Six names. By heart, y'all.
Incidentally, I usually find myself saying "Ron Artest" out loud, but I'll be calling him Metta World Peace here, because that's what the SB Nation auto-tagger recognizes.
This was the best.
