Metta World Peace Does The Weather In Vancouver

Metta World Peace of the Los Angeles Lakers apparently has a bunch of free time on his hands.  Since the team was eliminated from the playoffs, there probably is not a whole lot to do for the forward.  Instead of focusing on basketball, World Peace decided to head up to Vancouver to do the weather.

You can tell that Metta World Peace has absolutely nothing to do and very little understanding of weather.  I have no idea how he was contacted to do this job but it was pretty funny.  He really didn’t understand what was going on and it seemed like he had almost zero prep time.  For not actually practicing, it was not the world’s worst attempt.

See, this is what makes Metta World Peace so awesome.  He is kind of oblivious to everything that goes on around him.  There is a reason he publicly thanked his psychiatrist after the Lakers won the title.  He thinks that is acceptable.  He does not care how many people know he has issues, he just lets everything out on the table.  That is pretty admirable for a game in today’s day and age.

Maybe this can be a new gimmick for Metta World Peace next year.  He can go around to a bunch of different TV stations in LA and do the weather for them.  If he can manage to find a gig in Vancouver, I am sure some station in LA will take the chance on him.
