LA Laker, Ron Artest, is making another big splash in the public eye, but this time it’s not for his on the court antics… it’s for his regular old, normal, being a wack-job antics. You know, the kind of antics you have to file paperwork for.
According to TMZ, Artest recently filed a petition in LA Superior Court to legally change his name to: Mr. Metta World Peace.
Is it just me or does, “And it’s Peace for three!”, not really have a ring to it?
In a recent interview with TMZ Live, Artest AKA Peace, confessed that he’s been thinking about changing his name for a while, but kept the idea under his hat until he was sure he had found the perfect pseudonym. The volatile #15 didn’t even share his secret with his own wife!
Is this name change thing really going to be all that awesome when the NBA is stuck in a lockout next season? You’re just going to be a regular guy named Metta World Peace and that, my friend, is preeeetty lame.
