Knickerbockers agree with the artist formerly known as Ron Artest

Quote:
Metta World Peace, who cleared waivers late Sunday afternoon after being amnestied by the Los Angeles Lakers, has found a new landing spot.

World Peace said Monday that he was joining the New York Knicks because he wants to win.

"I don't care if I'm starting, or sweeping the floors. You hear me? I want to win," he said.

The Knicks said the contract has not been signed but an agreement has been reached.

The two came to terms on a two-year deal with the first year guaranteed, a league source told ESPNNewYork.com's Ian Begley.

The deal is worth approximately $1.6 million per season with a player option for Year 2, the source said, adding that the Knicks used the remainder of their mini-midlevel exception to sign the former Laker.

According to the amnesty provision of the current collective bargaining agreement, the Lakers will owe World Peace $7.3 million in the coming season.

Haha, perfect gif for that comment.

But I am an extreme optimist. If I expect my team to make the playoffs, I usually expect them to make a big run.

One of my favorite things to do, since I was like, has been making fun of the Knicks.

I like making fun of the Knicks too but this isn't a bad signing. Artest has slowed down and he's past his prime but he still might be the second best defender on the Knicks. They could use him on LeBron, Pierce, George, Deng, etc. He would do a better job than Melo on those guys.

That says more about the Knicks than Artest.

Yup.

Hes now an average perimeter defender but with Shumpert he shouldn't have to guard the other teams best guy. He's still a good three point shooter and rebounder and he's still a 6'7 260 banger.

The Knicks won't be a great team but I like their small ball lineup.
