Ron Artest: I'm Changing My Name ... RADICALLY

Say goodbye to Ron Artest and HELLOOOO to Metta World Peace ... Mr. Metta World Peace to you. Yes, Ron is going the way of Cassius Clay, Lew Alcindor and Chad Johnson. Ron's filed a petition in L.A. County Superior Court to change his name to -- World Peace.

FYI, metta means loving, kindness, happiness and all that jazz.

We're told Ron wants to put the new last name -- Peace -- on the back of his L.A. Lakers' jersey.

These name changes are typically granted by a judge unless it would result in confusion or fraud.
What could really be added here?

There's about a 1% chance TB doesn't mention former NBA player World B. Free in the comments.

    You have no idea how much I hope this is true... Although I'm not sure if I respect him or want to laugh at him. It's one of the two...

    What about Iam A. Prick or Brick Layer? Maybe Chugmore Hennessey?

    So is Kobe gonna be the Carson Palmer to Ron I mean Metta's OchoCinco, and rip the name off when he comes out on the court with it velcroed to the back of his jersey... these guys have waaaay too much time on their hands.

    It should be illegal for him to change his name to World Peace after the disturbance he caused at the Malice at the Palace incident. I don't think punching fans falls in the domain of peace!

    So lame, Lloyd Free changed his name to "World B. Free" years ago.

    This guy is a piece of work. World Peace? How about Animal Abuser? He's been sited in the past for neglect when he left his 2 beautiful great danes out on his property with no food or water. He was gone from the property altogether and the neighbors knew the dogs were there so they gave them water through a locked fence. The authorities were notified and the dogs were taken away. He paid a fine and that was the end of it. He's a big phoney and he needs his head examined.
