Metta World Peace has been a member of the New York Knicks for as long as he can remember. That doesn’t mean he has been there long. It just means that World Peace doesn’t exactly have the best memory nor does he care much for such things as semantics. Now that he is in the Big Apple, however, it comes to the surprise to not a single soul that he wants to comment about the city’s other team. You know, the Brooklyn Nets.

In an interview with the New York Post, World Peace was asked several mundane questions. Still, when he was asked about the toughest, best trash talker he has ever faced, Paul Pierce was his answer.

Wait, what?

I am not sure which Paul Pierce he is talking about, but Metta World Peace must not remember that guy who fakes injuries, needed to be put on a wheelchair and all things whiny about a guy with the same name who played for the Boston Celtics last year.

Regardless, something like this should be taken with a grain of salt because it is Metta World Peace. If you do somehow, magically think there is some merit to MWP thinking Pierce is tough, then you are likely a delusional Boston homer.

Not that there is anything wrong with that … except there is.
