The former Ron Artest to play in China next season
Jul 31, 2014, 2:22 PM EST
Does China really know what it’s getting here?

World Peace hasn’t drawn legitimate interest from NBA teams, so he’s considering playing overseas.

Ron Artest made a brief appearance on a rec league court in Los Angeles.

Shannon Brown joins Metta World Peace and Lamar Odom
Jul 19, 2014, 5:00 PM EST
A non-guaranteed training camp invite wouldn’t be hard to envision.

Larry Brown thinks the Knicks did Mike Woodson wrong, that Steve Mills doesn’t have a clue and Phil Jackson should coach. And get off his lawn!

Lamar Odom becomes the second former Lakers player to meet with Phil Jackson.
Mar 27, 2014, 4:15 PM EST
When rebuilding the Knicks, I’m sure Phil Jackson will turn to a 34-year-old wing with arthritic knees and a declining skill set.

The New York Knicks agreed to buyout and waive point guard Beno Udrih after they couldn’t trade him at the deadline. Because why would you need extra depth with the rock solid Raymond Felton as your starting point guard? The Memphis Grizzlies have claimed Udrih off waivers, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. Sources told ESPN.com…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while mourning the loss of Harold Ramis (RIP)….. Philadelphia 76ers on the court. My. Lord. They. Are. Terrible. The Sixers have lost 11 in a row after getting just routed by the Milwaukee Bucks 130-110. That would be the 11-win Milwaukee Bucks, which shot 57.1…

Metta World Peace just got a get out of jail free card. Better than free — the Knicks are going to pay him to go away. World Peace himself confirmed that he had come to an agreement to be bought out by the Knicks and signed the papers to be waived by them on Monday.…

We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

It’s buyout season in the NBA, and what that largely means is that players who performed well below expectations all season long will now be suddenly coveted by multiple teams due to their minimum contract price. The Knicks are reportedly in talks to cut ties with Metta World Peace, via ESPN New York, either through…

In the closing moments of a college basketball game between Oklahoma State and Texas Tech on Saturday, Marcus Smart went into the stands and shoved a fan after hearing something that crossed the line. Metta World Peace has a unique perspective on an incident like this, considering he too went into the stands under similar…

Metta World Peace hasn’t exactly been a factor for the Knicks this season, and has spent most of the year either underperforming, injured, or just plain benched. Without any consistent playing time, and with delusions that he can perhaps still play significant minutes while actually helping a team’s cause rather than hurting it, it’s not…

Knicks forward Metta World Peace may be a little disappointing on the court this season (although really his numbers, traditional and advanced, are just slightly down from last season save for he is taking few shots, all of which is what should be expected at his age of 34) however the man never disappoints off…

For a team that has had its success this season playing small ball, the Knicks have a lot of guys in their frontcourt. They start Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony but behind them are Kenyon Martin, Amar’e Stoudemire, Andrea Bargnani, Jeremy Tyler and Cole Aldrich. The challenge has been keeping all those banged-up bodies healthy…

Im bowling tomatoes at my house. its fun. a little messy , but fun — mettaworldpeace.com (@MettaWorldPeace) January 2, 2014 I need to just hang out at Metta World Peace‘s house for a night. It sounds more fun than my place. It’s not that my kids haven’t thought of things as messy as tomato bowling,…

The New York Knicks are headed to Texas for brutal a three-game road trip — at San Antonio Thursday, a back-to-back against the Spurs, then Dallas on Sunday. Not what a 9-21 team needs to get right. Just to add to the fun, they will be without Raymond Felton and Metta World Peace, according to…

The Knicks are a lousy defensive team, but they’re especially bad at defending the pick-and-roll. New York ranks 29th in points allowed per play finished by a pick-and-roll ball-hander and 30th in points allowed per play finished by a pick-and-roll screener, according MySynergySports. Wisely, because this isn’t working, Knicks coach Knicks coach Mike Woodson wants…

This was as bad as Knicks fans have feared. Before the tip the Knicks learned that leading scorer and guy they can’t do without Carmelo Anthony was in fact going to be out due to the sprained ankle suffered Monday. Then once the ball went up for that tip the Oklahoma City Thunder looked every…

The best laid plans of mice and David Stern… have been blown up by injuries. In another blow to the NBA’s Christmas Day showcase lineup, Carmelo Anthony will not play due to a sprained ankle suffered Monday night. Anthony wanted to go, came to the arena and met with the team’s medical staff, but the…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about NBA Jam legend Mike Iuzzolino… LeBron James, Miami Heat. No Dwyane Wade. Chris Bosh left late in the game after Paul Millsap elbowed his jaw. Other Heat players struggled (we’re looking at you, Mario Chalmers). Yet there was LeBron James to carry the…
