One has always wondered how exactly the mind of New York Knicks’ forward Metta World Peace works.
However there has never been a clear resolution of whether or not MWP has an actively working human brain or not.
That answer may be no and we may now know why.
That’s because World Peace is not human at all. He is an alien.
That explains why he thanked his psychiatrist on national television after winning an NBA Championship with the Los Angeles Lakers.
I knew he had to be from another planet. Thankfully MWP confirmed that fact.
“I’m not a player, I’m an alien,” he said with a straight face. “I wasn’t actually there. I was in another galaxy with my galactic friends.”
Tom Gatto of the Sporting News has MWP’s entire quote:
I don’t focus on anything else. Aliens only want to win championships. That’s it. Injuries is not a focus. Trade talk is not a focus. Nothing is a focus. Gluten-free pasta is not a focus, which I would rather have gluten-free pasta. Hey, if I have to have regular pasta. It is what it is. I’m still going to try to win a championship. Nothing will distract me from my focus, my galactic mind.
The sad part is that he may be telling the truth as hat could be the only thing to accurately describe his behavior through the years.
If anything though, whether human or alien, at least we know that MWP clearly loves pasta.
If you remember, his reported locker room tussle with Kenyon Martin was over pasta as well.
At the end of the day though, the Knicks may be only 9-20, but at least MWP is there to give us material to make us shake our heads over.
Keep it up I say.
While you are at it, get the message to Mike Woodson to play more aliens.
The humans on this team simply aren’t getting the job done.
