“He had his set rotation and I wasn’t in it,’’ World Peace told The Post by phone from his Beverly Hills home. “I played in Orlando only because [Iman] Shumpert was out. I asked my agent to be professional, respectful, and ask questions, and my agent said, ‘I think it’s best to try to get a buyout and get ready for the next opportunity.’

“I didn’t mind playing any role, but I didn’t see myself having a role, not even a leadership role,’’ World Peace said. “I was fine with being on the bench, but at times I wanted to help lead. But at times I tried to lead, it was met with resistance. I backed off a little and tried to blend in with the team. I tried to find where I could complement the players but I couldn’t find any room to complement.’’

Gotta' feel for Metta. He deserved better than that. Sad his homecoming couldn't quite work out the way it should have.

Says something about the Knicks Coaching staff though that they rather get feedback from proven underachievers/knuckleheads like Felton and JR, over Artest who, although alittle loopy, is still a capable Defender with Finals exp.

He'd help the tank and he'd definitely entertain. Give him a couple 10 day contracts to finish off the season.

I saw him outside Staples after the Clippers game. I said what up to him. Really nice guy.

If Knicks get in the playoffs , they will win it all I think.

It's true. I think Phil will enhance the coaching and the playing. And Knicks could come out on top. Ring for Melo
