Jimmy Kimmel Pranks Metta World Peace…Again!
Back in 2011, Jimmy Kimmel pranked NBA star Metta World Peace (then known as Ron Artest) so completely that Metta (Mr. World Peace?) must have always had his guard up from that day on. That kind of attitude could have served him well recently, as Kimmel again pranked the athlete for ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’
