Knicks fan World Peace buys Nets jacket

By Mike Mazzeo

Metta World Peace plays for the Lakers and roots for the Knicks.

But that didn’t stop the Queens native from buying a Nets jacket.

World Peace explained his decision in a series of Tweets (@MettaWorldPeace):

I just had to buy the Brooklyn Nets jacket.. All black Too dope!!!!! I'm a knick fan but I had to get the Brooklyn joint!!

The Brooklyn gear is sick.... I'm from queens , it's mets, Knicks , jets, and rangers for me.. But I can't wear those to a club..

Can never deny or forget where you from no matter what team you play for. Laker for life.. Knick fan for life.. NYC blood type.. Always

I just did a video with Jim jones in a Brooklyn jacket.. Queens,I had to do it. But I wore a Half met half knick new York hat also in a shot

Most definitely wanna retire a laker... But don't think for a minute I will ever stop repping my city NYC all day!!
