Knicks’ Metta World Peace said argument with Kenyon Martin was over pasta


A few days ago, it was reported New York Knicks forward’s Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin got into a ‘heated’ argument in the locker room.  No punches were thrown, the two two players were reportedly separated by teammates.

World Peace (because that name doesn’t sound awkward talking about a fight or anything) was questioned about the near-scuffle by Frank Isola of the New York Daily News recently and laughably suggested the argument was over pasta:

“We were eating pasta. He had elbow pasta, I had shell pasta, and I told him how my shell pasta is better than his elbow pasta,” World Peace said Tuesday, per Frank Isola of the NY Daily News. “And he was pretty upset about that. He loves elbow pasta, but I disagree, I think shell pasta is better. I don’t care. I will stand by that. Shell pasta.”

I’d generally assume World Peace was joking, but considering this is the same man who was nearly decapitated by his wife, who tossed a steel cooking pan through his Hummer windshield during his tenure in Sacramento, I’m not sure.

Poor Mike Woodson.
