Los Angeles Laker Ron Artest Is Changing His Name To Metta World Peace

Basketball player Ron Artest is reportedly changing his name to (drum roll please):

Metta World Peace.

I’m so serious. According to the LA Times:

The Lakers’ forward filed paperwork in Los Angeles County Superior Court to change his name to “Metta World Peace.” Artest has informed the Lakers of his plans but has not yet filed paperwork with the NBA to apply for a name change on the back of his jersey, according to Lakers spokesman John Black.

“My understanding is ‘Metta’ will be his first name and ‘World Peace’ will be his last,” Black said.

I’ve never purchased a Laker’s jersey, but I kind of like the idea of having one that says “World Peace” on the back of it.
