Welcome back to the NBA offseason oasis we call the Summer League in Las Vegas.
Today started off with a bang. The New York Knicks first took the court, just after word got out that Metta World Peace had agreed to terms with the team, per Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Before the press in attendance could even digest the news, up popped Metta grinning like a cheshire cat and hugging Clyde Frazier.
There was electricity in the air.
This prompted a media frenzy with New York beat writers (Frank Isola, Robert Silverman and Marc Berman to name a few) and I surrounding World Peace and peppering him with questions. He was asked how it felt to be the prodigal son returning home—he said, "great."
He was also asked about his recent behavior, including tweets suggesting he intended to sign with Yao Ming's Chinese team or an NHL team. To that, World Peace claimed his, "creativity couldn't be held in check." Hard to argue with that.
It was vintage Metta. And so much more.
