If you thought it was impossible for Lakers forward Ron Artest to do anything else that would be considered clinically insane by some professionals, you thought wrong.
The former NBA Defensive Player of the Year had his bid to change his name to Metta World Peace, denied by a judge. Yes, you read correctly, it is not a type. Ron Artest is attempting to change his name to Metta World Peacer.
Having begun the name-changing process this past June, Artest’s request has been postponed due to some outstanding traffic warrants. Hopefully Metta can get all this figured out soon…..
