but now with stronger players like Andrea like MWP JR really needs to step up otherwise he will be benched more often
MWP can easly shoot 3s he is also good @FT and what is MOST important he can also easly shot jumpers.
So now Knicks got more shooters MELO MWP Andrea
K-mart still can be signed? is so Knicks will b reaaaaally dangerous.
Only what i am dreaming bout is PG with skill level of top elite such as Parker Curry Rondo if Knicks can catch such player Knicks can really complete with Heat.
This is terrific. Metta will help. By the way, the GM who picked Weis over Artest 14 years ago was Ed Tapscott. He was followed a short time later by Layden who continued to make mistakes throughout his GM term. Grunwald has not had much to work with and has done a more than decent job. Note that Metta's contract is for two years, i.e., it ends the same time as Amare's, Melo's and Chandler's. Does anyone know whether what we pay Metta for the coming season is simply deducted from the $7M plus that LA owes him under the amnesty. If that is the case, there would be no reason for Metta to care what we pay him in the first year of his two year contract.
terrible signing money wise, instead of saving the 1.7 mini left over for a guy like kenyon who lives off chump change, we give that 1.7 to mwp whose already getting paied 8 mill a year
What the H#$# are you smoking? Seriously? Good signing by the Knicks, so was Bargs. Bargs will be a new man next season...book it. Meta will cause terror like always....Once my most hated player has become apart of my team lol. He a threat on the court defensively and can hit the occasional three.
I'm excited. Should be an interesting season.
Love It, Welcome home Ron. (His mama named him Ron, so I'm gonna call him Ron)
On Melo after this upcoming season he has an ETO player option which everyone is expecting him to opt out of... Amare, will still be hard to move but could be easier to buy him out if he suffers another poor season... For Chandler, Knicks would probably be able to move his final year to open up cap space... But next off-season expect big changes...
I'm hyped up like crazy right now. A day earlier then I expected it go through. What got me wasn't only the signing but what he said. And I paraphrase: its not about the money just give me the contract to sign. What is it a dollar? Just lemme sign it. Are you kidding me?? That's the type of players NY should get behind. The MWP's and the smiths who put loyalty and their team ahead of money.

Wow I can't wait for this season to start, I always wanted Ron to come home and play for the Knicks. He's exactly the type of player that we need, a stretch SF that adds toughness to this team. I live by Queensbridge so hopefully I can meet him one day lol.
hopefully so. mwp attitude never was a problem and he goes 110 percent and never takes plays off.
We should of drafted him back in 99'. Welcome to the New York Knicks Ron Artest aka Metta World Peace. We needed a player like you for a very long time. Artest is underrated because people look at numbers and don't realize Artest impacts the game in a special way. Knicks saved themselves with this signing.
