In the summer of 2013, Kevin Garnett and Metta World Peace both made their way to New York basketball teams. What happened next is a story fit for the funny pages. Now thanks to illustrator Brad Beatson, we get a look at Kevin & Metta’s New York Adventures. Previously, 30 seconds in the mind of Metta.

J.R. Smith: Way to arrive at the 11th Hora, guys.
Kevin: … I thought we were heading to a club?
Metta: This is way, way better. Totes exclusive.
J.R.: Come on, we’re missing the best part.

DJ Slick Reuven: Alright y’all, let’s move to the dance floor and make a circle. It’s Hora time!
Metta: Is this the chair dance part!? Ahhhh!!!

Metta World Peace sprints ahead.

J.R.: Hahaha, looks like he’s trying to recruit some new Knicks fans.
KG: What? I won’t allow it.

Tracy McGrady tweeted those posters you see up there, thanking the most notable stops of his NBA career. It was a very nice thing to do. But he also forgot the other four teams he played for, which is too bad for those cities since they were a part of the Tracy McGrady experience too.

So to make things fair, I whipped up a few Tracy McGrady posters in Photoshop, thanking each of the cities where T-Mac showed up for a season before moving somewhere else for a season. I think you’ll agree that these cover all the non-Chinese Basketball Association bases.

Zen Master: Metta, come in here.
Metta: What’s up, coach?
Zen Master: Are you trying to be funny? I’m not going to tell you this again, you have to replace the teepee.
Metta: Well jeez, you went through all that trouble of making a sign and didn’t say anythi–
Zen Master: Metta. The teepee. Now.
Metta: SHEESH alright, I’m on it.

Do you guys remember Jeremy Lin? I sure do. That was an unbelievable month he had before completely vanishing from the NBA landscape, never to be heard from again.

What’s that? He’s on the Rockets? Oh, that’s right. Totally forgot. Cute kid though.

In theaters October 4.

Metta: Kevin, we’re gonna be late. Let’s go man!
Kevin: Just one second.
Metta: What’s takin’ you so long man, it’s not like you have any ha– wait. What’s this?

Bathroom-Note

Metta: Haha, Kevin, is this serious? You’re crazy man, let’s go.
Kevin: Everything I do is serious.

KG and Metta hurry down to the lobby to meet up with J.R. Smith.

J.R. Smith: Let’s go fellas, we’re gonna be late.

HEADBAND COLLECTION

If you are anything like me, then you have long hair and sweat a lot when you’re playing basketball and therefore wear a headband for logical reasons while also acknowledging that you started wearing one back in high school because a bunch of guys on the early 2000s Trail Blazers were wearing them — Cliff Robinson and Rasheed Wallace, chief among them — and you thought it was cool. Given those similarities between me and you, I’d imagine you’d be as much of a fan of Million Dollar Ballers’ “Headband Collection” of t-shirts that feature some of the league’s most notable current headbanders as I am.

As you probably guessed from the pictures, the shirts feature James Harden, Carmelo Anthony and Rajon Rondo — no, not Paul Pierce, as he’s no longer a Celtic and the shirt doesn’t have an archipelago-ish beard on the face — all of whom have worn headbands throughout their careers. (Well, Rondo is a sometimes guy who occasionally flips his around like it’s Ken Griffey Jr.’s hat, but that’s still better than yet another LeBron James shirt.) They each retail for $35, which is a small price to pay to show how much you love headbanded basketball players. It’s more expensive than buying an NBA headband, sure, but at this point, you probably already own several of those and you’re running out of places to put more terrycloth.

Nonetheless, as a bro who owns a few of these MDB shirts, I can vouch for the actual comfort of the shirt, which is top-notch. But this isn’t The Shirt Fabric Jones, so let’s stick to the players, who look pretty great on these things. I mean, what’s better than walking down the street while wearing something that is pretty much just a beard, a mohawk and a headband? Basically only growing out a giant beard and mohawk, then buying a headband and walking down the street, which would take way longer than simply ordering one of these shirts. Choose wisely.

KG: The f*** is this little Casper doin’ on my screen?
Paul Pierce: Lemme see? Haha, yo that’s Snapchat. You never seen this before?
KG: Metta. F***ing Metta. Always on my damn phone. “KG, KG, I just gotta get some tickets!!” What the f*** are you talkin about with your damn Candyland saga Metta? God dammit.
PP: Hahaha, that game is crazy yo. Don’t even start. It’s wild addicting.
Coach Kidd: Alright y’all, let’s get a layup line going.
PP: Man, shut up
KG: Layups, Jason? Really. Layups?
PP: How we supposed to respect this dude? We been playin’ against his ass our whole career and he’s talking layups?
Kidd: Now, Paul–
PP: B****, what?! Nah, Nah

Paul Pierce lunges at Jason Kidd and throws him in a headlock.

PP: Ay KG take a picture real quick!

Choke-Out

PP: Haha! Class is dismissed, that’ll be all for today folks.
Kidd: You guys, no!  You can’t leave. Guys. Come back!

Everyone leaves except for Brook Lopez.
