If only that headline was literal and not another pun on the former Ron Artest. Then it would be erroneous. (World isn’t LA-NY)
Metta World Peace’s declaration of retirement, preference to play in China or switch to football were all taken with a grain of salt. The serious part of the amnesty process is that he has cleared waivers and is officially an unrestricted free agent.
Living in LA seemed comfortable for World Peace, and if he signs with the Clippers, he might not even have to change addresses. However, the call of the Big Apple Knicks, a team in need of toughness (Andrea Bargnani doesn’t quite hack it) is hard to ignore.
