What could really be added here?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.
There's about a 1% chance TB doesn't mention former NBA player World B. Free in the comments. JR 6/23/2011 06:50:00 PM Tweet Edit
