The reputation surrounding Metta World Peace involves how distracted he can become.
He stars in music videos and television shows. World Peace parties during the offseason. And a quick look at his Twitter account shows the Lakers forward will riff on anything at all hours of the night.
So it’s totally believable that World Peace would actually use a cell phone watch, as he touts for iCellWatch.com
“I can check the weather while I play basketball,” World Peace boasts.
Yet, even watching the commercial shows World Peace is focused. He looks chiseled, in shape and worried mostly about basketball. And the results are paying off. World Peace ranks third on the team in points per game (14), third in rebounds (five) and fourth in minutes played (34.9), his highest totals since joining the Lakers in 2009.
So let World Peace check the weather while playing all he wants. Most likely it will happen after he nails a three-point shot or drives through the post.
