Metta World Peace plays cornhole on “Home & Family”

The Lakers won’t just miss Metta World Peace for his defense and his locker room loyalty.

Reporters will miss his goofy interviews. Fans will miss his unpredictable on-court antics, ranging from flexing his biceps or kissing the hands of female Lakers fans. Some will even miss the comic relief surrounding World Peace’s zany shot selection and ugly fast breaks, even if it did cause their blood pressure to rise.

World Peace may have since signed with the New York Knicks to a two-year deal worth $3.2 million. But he’s gone back to Los Angeles providing more examples of his fun personality. The video above shows him playing a game of cornhole on the set of the Hallmark Channel’s “Home & Family,” which airs 10:00 am ET/PT every weekday. He hosted a party Monday night at Infusion Lounge in Universal City. World Peace also signed copies of his recently released children’s book Tuesday at the Grove.

As for World Peace’s cornhole appearance, he showed the same kind of marksmanship that often plagued him with the Lakers. But no matter. That didn’t prevent him from having a good time and smiling along the way.
