The New York Knicks will continue their preseason schedule in Toronto on Friday, and veteran forward Metta World Peace needed someone to refresh his memory on which team plays in Canada’s largest city. Speaking with the media on Wednesday night, World Peace spoke about how he forgot that the Raptors were Toronto’s NBA team. “Honestly I forget stuff so fast,” he said. “Like today I asked the big fella, ‘When we go to Toronto, who do we play?’ He laughed at me.” It was probably just a brain cramp, which is understandable since the Raptors haven’t been relevant since Vince Carter led the franchise to its only playoff series win during the 2000-01 season. Toronto has finished better than fourth in the Atlantic division just once in the last five years, and the team hasn’t made the playoffs since the 2007-08 season. Check out World Peace’s interaction with the media in the video below. Filed under: Headlines, NBA, New York Knicks, N...

Turn On The Knicks Throwback Thursday – October 10th Edition – Garden Returns

Carmelo Anthony’s Absence Cannot Be Overlooked and Other Impressions From Celtics’ Win Over Knicks

A win is a win.

Bargnani must get used to doing less

The pump fakes aren't always necessary. We've talked all summer about how Andrea Bargnani could benefit from a new role.
