I’m still waiting for the “Autobiography” of Metta World Peace but in the meantime, it looks like I’ll be going to Barnes & Noble (screw Kindles, PDFs and digital formats) to pick up a tangible printed copy that I can read to my daughters.
Before you start bashing the “too sexy for his cat” Metta with “blood in his Gatorade” for writing a kid’s book because you start thinking about all of his crazy moments (see videos below) just remember that Dennis Rodman “wrote” a book earlier this year and Metta is pretty sane and likable compared to Kim Jong Un’s buddy. Metta cares for women and children. He’s made music for Afghan Women and entertained kids on Yo Gabba Gabba. He should also be an expert at communication with children considering he has 4 kids and spent time with child therapists last summer.

In all seriousness, I’m giving props to Metta and other players like Chris Paul and Amare that have made children’s books. I just wish Metta would of written the book under his alias Bootsy Bellows.
