When you are a famous multimillionaire basketball player flying from New Orleans to San Antonio, what better way to pass the time than Skyping with a bunch of fans? Sure, you can probably come up with 100 things better than that — including but not limited to high stakes bourré, sleeping, playing PlayStation Vita, taking pictures of your teammates sleeping, Instagramming your shoes, writing rap lyrics and eating various cuts of beef — but that is why you are not Metta World Peace.
As you can see above, Metta spent the flight chatting with a bunch of fans over the internet. It really happened, thanks to this little message on his Twitter.
Who wants to Skype me tonight… I’m skyping two males and 4 females. Five mins each…, Skype-”Theronandmettashow “
Once he put that schizophrenic handle online, a bunch of people called. Judging by the taped conversation from Jennifer Garcia, it was totally worth it. Between losing signal because MWP was traveling at 30,000 feet, MWP telling people to tweet their conversations to prove it’s real and the squealing, I’d even say it was more than worth it if you’re one of the two males and three other females who got through to Metdawg.
Of course, this does beg the question — If you could talk to Metta World Peace for five minutes, what would you say? Sure, you probably wouldn’t actually be able to ask him any questions because he’d be telling you to record this conversation with different technologies, but it’s still an interesting question. I’d probably just ask him where he gets his ideas, but I’d love to hear your suggestions.
