07:25 AM ET 10.31 | Like millions of New Yorkers, Metta World Peace took the subway to work on Wednesday. The rattling sound of the approaching subway car delivered the news that [World Peace] has been waiting for his whole life. Finally, it was time to leave Queensbridge and head into Manhattan to join the Knicks. The vibrations of the arriving F train getting louder by the second, the man formerly known as Ron Artest stood up from the bench where he had been sitting (next to a surprised fan, of course) and laughed as he watched the train come to stop. "This," he said, "is something I've always wanted to do." Then he boarded the subway car, bound for the Garden. His dream of becoming a Knick finally a reality in his 15th year in the NBA, World Peace thought it would only be appropriate to return home to Queensbridge and take the subway.

Pablo should not be starting and what was the coach thinking when late in the game he left Pablo in and seating shup

Was Artest even born in 1973?

Lostwill, slow down! We give up a 25 point lead to the BUCKS. Miami went up by 20 to Chicago in the second period and the game was over.

We are better but there is work to be done for Miami.

Wins will be rare for us this season. Especially in the playoffs so let's enjoy our best winning percentage while it lasts... of course we all know we're a 5 seed at best. Anything better than that can be chalked up as over achievement.

We play Chicago tonight... chalk that as L. They have more talent and are more disciplined and mentally tougher than us. We'll be 1-1 come tomorrow.

Is it true that MWP clicked his heels 3 times and said, "There's no place like home..."
