New York Knicks forward Metta World Peace believes he was not given a fair chance at Madison Square Garden.
The 34-year-old was released from his contract at the New York Knicks on Tuesday as Mike Woodson reportedly wants to 'go in a new direction'.
Woodson also chose to buyout Beno Udrih's contract in order to clear up two spots in the New York Knicks' roster.
World Peace has not taken the decision to release him from the Eastern Conference franchise well as he had stated on several occasions that he was keen on moving to New York, however he said that he does not blame Woodson from his exit from Madison Square Garden.
Speaking to ESPN shortly after his release from the New York Knick, World Peace said: "I don't think I was given a fair chance.
"People automatically assume that I'm getting old, I think."
World Peace missed a lot of basketball in December and January due to a knee injury which limited his game-time during the season.
However the veteran basketball star believes he still has the legs to perform at the top level in the NBA.
He added: "When that time comes, I'll be ready. The timing wasn't right. Especially for a player such as myself, the timing could have been better under different circumstances."
