Metta Advocates Playing Smart Over Physical
As a native New Yorker, Metta World Peace knows a large segment of New York Knicks fans wants its team to play a physically imposing style of basketball.
The veteran forward, however, disagrees with those sentiments.
He said on Thursday the Knicks need to try something different this season if they hope to end their 40-year title drought.
“I’m not big on just being physical,” World Peace said. “I know New York fans love the old physical teams; New York is a physical place. But New York don’t have a championship in the last how many years? 1973? It’s about time we become intelligent. It’s about time we changed that.”
