World Peace Doesn't Care If "Aunt Jemima" Coaches The Knicks

This off season Metta World Peace was amnestied by the Lakers.  Wanting to join a contender, MWP was selective about what team he was going to play for next.

When his hometown Knicks came calling, after finishing with the second best record in the East a year ago, World Peace thought it was a no-brainer to sign with them.  

He was so excited to play in New York for a team that had championship aspirations that he didn't care, or know who was coaching, and tells ESPN New York that even if Aunt Jemima was coaching he would still have came to New York

“I honestly didn’t even know who the coach was when I was coming to New York. 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.”

Currently sitting at the bottom of the embarrassing Atlantic Division with a 3-10 record, you have to wonder if their record could have been any worse with a syrup bottle at the helm instead of Mike Woodson
