Metta World Peace says a lot of things. He says he's a lizard. He says he's an alien. He's spent all of last night making CAA jokes. I think he means it this time, though:
Thank NYC for everything. Thanks for having me I will always be grateful... My agent is working on a buyout. No disrespect to the city Luv U— Metta World Peace (@MettaWorldPeace) February 22, 2014
My agent just informed me this release could happen any hr now. I just want to say "Thanks for everything"— Metta World Peace (@MettaWorldPeace) February 22, 2014
That sounds real. Bummer. No disrespect taken, Metta. It just didn't work out. Metta's play was erratic, then he got hurt, then Mike Woodson stuck him to the bench near-permanently. He's another savvy little signing gone down the drain, just like Beno Udrih, and just like Ronnie Brewer before them. It's a shame the Knicks couldn't trade either Metta or Beno and get a pick out of all this, because I bet Beno's headed for a buyout of his own in the near future.
