The New York Knicks need to be more "intelligent", says new star Metta World Peace.

New York Knicks star Metta World Peace believes that the franchise needs to be more "intelligent" if they are to end their wait for an NBA title.

Having arrived from the Los Angeles Lakers this summer, the veteran forward says it is not all about being physical.

ESPN New York quotes him as saying: "I know New York fans love the old physical teams; New York is a physical place.

"But New York don't have a championship in the last how many years? 1973? It's about time we become intelligent. It's about time we changed that.

World Peace will hope to play an integral role in the Knicks' bid to improve on their playoff showing from last year.
