New York Knicks forward Metta World Peace took public transportation to Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night, deciding to take the subway from Queensbridge, where he grew up, into Manhattan for the team's season opener against Milwaukee.
MSG Network took the 10-minute subway trip along with him as he talked about it was "something he always wanted to do".
Metta World Peace rode the subway Wednesday with his childhood friends and fans from the Queensbridge Houses where he grew up to Madison Square Garden where he played his first game as a member of the New York Knicks — the team he dreamed of playing for as a kid named Ron Artest.
"This," he said before boarding the Manhattan-bound subway car, "is something...
I’ve got to admit it. Misguided or not, the signing of Metta World Peace was by far my favorite move Knicks move this offseason. Sure, he promises some occasionally unwanted entertainment (although he guarantees some high-quality comedic relief too). And, yes, he’s getting older and his health worries me. That said, it’s great to see Ron come home. The guy can still play defense...
Prior to the New York Knicks pulling off a victory against the Milwaukee Bucks last night, new forward Metta World Peace decided to relive some of his past by taking the subway F-train to Madison Square Garden.
Metta (Ron Artest back then) grew up in Queensbridge and used to take the F-train back in the day.
The only difference this time around was that an MSG Network camera crew...
Metta World Peace is playing for the New York Knicks this season. Metta is from Queens and went back to his roots to get to the Knicks season opener at the Garden on Wednesday. World Peace rode the F train from his hometown of Queensbridge.
Metta World Peace is a man of the people. So much so that he took the F train to Madison Square Garden for his season-opening game with the New York Knicks on Wednesday. HoopsWorld’s Tommy Beer says Metta took the F train from the Queensbridge stop to 34th street prior to the Knicks’ 90-83 win […]
I can't stand Ron Artest. And I refuse to call him by his ridiculous new name. Anyway he took the subway to Knicks opening night at MSG.
Kind of funny I guess, but I'm never on board with any publicity stunts Artest always seems to be running. I disliked him much before the three pointer that clinched game seven of the 2010 NBA Finals for the Lakers against the Celtics....
Reminiscing on those Ron Artest days, Metta World Peace takes a childhood journey on the New York City subway to Madison Square Garden. World Peace states how ecstatic it feels to be back in his hometown of New York and play in the arena he grew up loving. He adores the game of basketball, but he loves putting on his Knicks jersey with fellow teammates Carmelo Anthony and Iman Shumpert...

For most of the preseason, it seemed as if Mike Woodson was committed to starting Andrea Bargnani at power forward.
But something’s changed in the past few days.
Woodson mentioned that there’s a possibility Metta World Peace could start over Bargnani when the Knicks open the season Wednesday against Milwaukee.
“I don’t know yet,” Woodson said Monday....
New York native Metta World Peace rode the NYC subway to his first game in Madison Square Garden as a member of the New York Knicks.
Metta World Peace is proud of his 33-year-old body that is entering its 14th season in the NBA. Talk to him and it is clear he has spent too much time admiring himself in the mirror.
“My body is amazing,” he told The Post. He was serious, too. “When girls look at my body, they’re like ‘Wow.’ They ask, ‘How old are you, 22?’ I say, ‘Nah. I’m 33.’ ”
Metta World Peace made his New York Knicks debut Wednesday at Madison Square Garden. Instead of driving in a car or taking a helicopter to get from Queensbridge to Manhattan to join the Knicks, World Peace traveled by subway. From Newsday: His dream of becoming a Knick finally a reality in his 15th year in the NBA, World Peace thought it would only be appropriate to return home...
Although he started in all seven preseason games, Knicks forward Andrea Bargnani will come of the bench for tonight’s season opened against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Head coach Mike Woodson hasn’t made the decision official, however he has hinted he will start Metta World Peace at small forward with Carmelo Anthony heading back to his power forward position.
It seems Woodson’s...
