Yeah, we've had true New Yorkers ball for the Knicks and we've had ballers from other towns become true New Yorkers by playing for the Knicks. Still, there is nothing like a Knick acknowledging New York roots by hanging out with the rest of us and keeping it relatively real. That's one reason I love Metta and think he was meant to be a New Yorker a long time ago, some where in his prime. But we got him now and he is so entertaining, even as he takes the train to the game with his homies.
Metta is on track to be a mainstay in New York and the starting lineup, especially if Bargnani does not become the offensive mid-range and long-range threat we need him to be.
