Metta World Peace didn’t watch Seahawks-49ers, women’s basketball instead


New York Knicks star Metta World Peace is a polarizing figure and he has been for a while. He can get vocal on Twitter responding to seemingly everything. One person asked him if he was watching the NFC Championship game and who he thought would win the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.

World Peace responded that he didn’t watch the game, that he was watching women’s college basketball instead.

It is interesting that he’d pass up a quality game with high level of competition, but being an NBA player preferring to watch basketball instead makes sense. Most professional athletes I’ve talked to prefer to watch quality competition instead of their sport. He missed a hell of a game, it would’ve been interesting to see him weigh in on the Richard Sherman fiasco.
