Metta World Peace prefers gluten-free pasta.
That’s one of the few things that can be deduced for certain from the New York Knicks forward’s latest rant. He likes gluten-free pasta, and he’s an alien. After brushing off questions about Knicks owner James Dolan‘s meeting with players, in which Dolan reportedly said no roster or coaching changes are in the works, by saying, “I’m not a player, I’m an alien,” World Peace elaborated as only he could.
“I don’t focus on anything else,” World Peace said, according to Steve Popper of NorthJersey.com. “Aliens only want championships. That’s it. Injuries is not a focus. Trade talk is not a focus. Nothing is a focus. Gluten-free pasta is not a focus, which I would rather have gluten-free pasta. Hey, if I have to have regular pasta, it is what it is. I’m still going to try to win a championship. Nothing will distract me from my focus, my galactic mind.”
Um … what?
With that, the Knicks went out and lost to the Raptors 95-83 on Friday. It’s not known whether World Peace actually is extraterrestrial, but he’s definitely far-out.
