I’ve been in the NBA for just 18 seasons. I played in China for a season, and I wanted to play in China because I wanted to play in front of the Chinese fans and they were so supportive over the last couple of years. And then, I went to Italy and played in front of the Italian fans. It’s a great experience,” he said.“So if I do come here to play one day, I’ll be fortunate and I want to win.”However, World Peace said that everything is still up in the air right at this moment, with him still being undecided what to do next.“As of right now, I’m not sure where I’m going to play this year. I might go on business this year and play next year. But I really enjoy my business and I really enjoy playing basketball,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES NGCP on security risk: Chinese just technical advisers RELATED VIDEOFormer NBA star Metta World Peace says he’s open to playing in PH2.8K viewsSportsVentuno Web Player 4.51 “I’m still in pretty good shape and I’d really like to play basketball.
