— Metta World Peace (@MettaWorldPeace) July 15, 2013
World Peace, a Queens native, has always been a Knicks fan -- he even said he rooted for the team when he was with the Los Angeles Lakers -- but he also purchased a Nets jacket last season when the team moved.
Here's what he tweeted at the time of the purchase:
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!!
