His ridiculous motor and moments in the NBA has made him a poster-child on SportsCenter's "Not Top 10" list. I don't know about you, but this guy makes me laugh every time he suits up, making him an excellent reality TV personality

The long-time bad boy of the NBA is an absolute character and his upcoming comedy tour proves he is quite hilarious as well. Reality TV would cater to World Peace, a formerly-known short-tempered athlete who is more of an entertainer than anything else
