Amar'e Stoudemire and Jimmy Kimmel scared Metta World Peace so badly he called 911

Cool prank, meanies.

I have already made it clear that I think Jimmy Kimmel is a manipulative monster, and I'm now sad to report he's recruited a player from my favorite basketball team onto his terror squad. If you want, here's Kimmel and Amar'e Stoudemire "pranking" Metta World Peace:

The "prank" is that Metta is headed to a charity event in a limo driven by Kimmel's cousin Sal in disguise. Sal irritates him -- with constant chatter, jokes, an autograph request, and music -- to the point that he wants to leave the cab, but can't because the Kimmel accomplice refuses to stop. Meanwhile, Amar'e is in a van nearby watching what happens and phoning in commands.

The whole thing is, to me, pretty sad and minimally funny. First, a gruff Metta basically announces his retirement when asked if he's a basketball player:

Then he gets progressively more annoyed:

And then, when the driver refuses to pull over, he gets justifiably scared that he's been kidnapped and calls 911:

You made a friend fear for his safety. Great prank, guys! At least someone had fun:

DOWN WITH KIMMEL AND ALL THOSE WHO FOLLOW HIM.
