World Peace signed with the Knicks in the offseason, passing up an opportunity to stay in Los Angeles with the Clippers, largely because of the lure of winning in New York. "I honestly didn't even know who the coach was when I was coming to New York," World Peace said. "I just wanted to win a championship; I didn't even know who was coaching. I didn't care. It could have been Aunt Jemima. They could have had the syrup coaching. I was coming here regardless. I just wanted to win a championship here." ESPN.com

Knicks small forward Metta World Peace knows as well as anyone how badly Bryant wants to tie Michael Jordan when it comes to the ring count, having played alongside him with the Lakers the last four seasons. When he heard about Bryant's deal, he saw it as a sacrifice which he believes could keep the Lakers in contention. "With (a max deal for Bryant), you wouldn't have had any room to give any (money) to anybody else," World Peace told USA TODAY Sports. "Him taking that little pay cut is going to help them get other players, which is very important, so it's good." USA Today Sports

“I don’t want to see any family go through it — she put up a good fight,’’ World Peace said. “It was inspirational the fight she put up. I found out a couple of days before training camp she wasn’t going to make it.’’ New York Post
