For the past few months, members of the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks have been having an ongoing war of words.

Each side feels they should be New York’s team (because hey, the city is only big enough for one, okay!?!) though one of the newest Knicks, Metta World Peace has no interest in engaging in the festivities. In fact, he just wants some pie, dammit.

Per ESPN New York:

Notorious for controversial quotes, World Peace declined to respond to Paul Pierce‘s assertion that it’s time for the rival Brooklyn Nets to start running New York City, saying he doesn’t have the energy to engage in a war of words and is still just trying to enjoy his offseason.

“I just want apple pie. I don’t feel like talking,” World Peace said. “I want to go to Whole Foods, enjoy my Whole Foods and play with my teammates. I don’t have the energy to go back and forth with words because there’s just too many great things happening in New York City for me to be going back and forth.”

Asked about the Nets and their additions of Kevin Garnett, Pierce, Jason Terry and Andrei Kirilenko, World Peace responded, “Honestly, I don’t even know who’s on their team. I’m not going to lie. I’m just happy to be a Knick. That’s it.”

Well, I’m not sure if the pie is going to solve all your problems, say like tacos, but it’s worth a shot.
