Pasta is tearing the New York Knicks apart

ELBOWS VS. SHELLS

The Knicks are a mess right now, and one of many stories of dysfunction came earlier this week, when ESPN's Ian Begley reported that Kenyon Martin and Metta World Peace got into a verbal altercation during shootaround. Reporters had their first opportunity to ask the guys about their fight at practice Tuesday, and World Peace answered in typically dismissive/bizarre fashion:

If the Knicks didn't have to worry about pasta, everything would be pici. This whole thing is fusilli.

He is messing around, of course, because that's what Metta World Peace does, but on the other hand, THIS IS A BATTLE WORTH FIGHTING and I won't be surprised if it divides the whole team. I, for one, slightly prefer shells to elbows because of the superior sauce-catching cavity, but as long as the pasta is short and easy to cook evenly, I'm happy with it. I do believe Metta when he says he prefers elbows to shells.

SHELLS VS. ELBOWS. WHO YA GOT?

CRUCIAL UPDATE: Metta actually prefers shells. Previous reports were ERRONEOUS.
