I promise these athletes are some nut cases!!! You can always count on them to do, say, and come up with nonsense during their off-seasons. Always colorful and slightly crazy Ron Artest has decided to change his name…
According to TMZ:
Say goodbye to Ron Artest and HELLOOOO to Metta World Peace. 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.
