Sadly, the man formerly known as Ron Artest is correct about some of his statement.
The Knicks are 11 games under .500, have a coach fighting for his job and have played atroicious at times. Because they play in the Eastern Conference, they can still have postseason aspirations.
Metta World Peace is known for a being an out the box thinker, so it should surprise no one that the Queens native told the New York Post that the “Knicks can still make the playoffs and win a championship.”
“I didn’t picture this. I was very optimistic. A championship level team was on my mind,” World Peace said Monday on ESPN Radio. “I still believe we have championship-level players.
“We are good enough to make the playoffs. I believe the team has what it takes. Sometimes you can start off on the wrong foot but it can end up well, and we still have the capabilities to win a championship. These players are more than capable.”
You have to love the Knicks man.
