Metta World Peace, TV Reporter

Metta’s World is meta all right. It’s Metta World Peace, interviewing fellow New York Knicks for a new “All-Access” Web series.

MWP starts off strong on media day with the question, “What’s the fly-est thing about you?” Not so successful are his subsequent efforts to ask, on behalf of fans, “What’s your favorite toe?” But you know, when the player Knicks teammates have taken to calling “The Peacemaker” is involved, it’s always going to be unpredictable.

There’s also a couple of cute kids, an innocent-bystander banana and some discussion of “swaggiest tattoos.” Reaction so far on Bleacher Report, Uproxx and elsewhere to the new Web series is uniformly positive.

A rep for the Knicks tells FishbowlNY that “Web series” is perhaps a tad too formal a designation for this new MWP endeavor. However, there will definitely be additional episodes “throughout the season” on knicksnow.com.
