MWP says he's retiring from NBA

Metta World Peace is taking the route most players who are amnestied have in the past: threaten you’ll retire. For most, it’s mentioned once to scare off teams, then not thought much about later. However, MWP appears far more serious with his claim.




Yes, MWP has interest in joining the Arena Football League. And you know you’d watch if he played. The one team most thought MWP would play for would be his hometown Knicks, who he has always publicly supported. However, according to this, they’re even off the list. In regards to the China allegations, it’s not the first time he’s mentioned playing in China.



World Peace has maintain a relationship with Yao Ming throughout his former teammate’s retirement, so it seems like a possibility. It’s not the first avenue of a prospective career that Metta has explored.




Nevertheless, only Metta knows what he’ll do next.
