Metta World Peace performs live weather forecast for Canadian TV network

Thursday June 7th, 2012

Metta World Peace, the player formerly known as Ron Artest, performed an on-air weather broadcast for CTV BC, the news network in British Columbia, on Wednesday during a visit to Vancouver.

The Los Angeles Lakers small-forward seemed confused by Celsius, saying that 13 degrees in Port Hardy is, "pretty cold, I'm assuming."

He also didn't understand some of the graphics on the map: "There's a line up here, I don't know what that means."

When pointing to Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, he said, "She sounds like she's hot, but she's cold."
