Los Angeles Laker forward Metta World Peace recently appeared on the Nick Jr. show Yo Gabba Gabba with his 8-year-old daughter Diamond.

In the episode, Metta World Peace stays true to his goofy personality and sports yellow short-shorts and high red striped tube socks to race characters from the show.  He runs awkwardly around a mini track to take first place in the race.

In the very short distance race, the NBA star raced against Toodee, a blue cat-dragon, and Mrs. Fox, an animated fox.  His daughter and the rest of the shows creative characters cheered on the race from the sideline.
