They shall call me Peace...
The always eccentric and quite frankly AWESOMELY odd Lakers forward, Ron Artest filed a petition in L.A. County Superior Court to change his name to — Metta (meaning: loving, kindness, happiness) World Peace.
Hey, if I can actually call a grown bamma OCHOCINCO, I’d happily call someone Sir Peace. But that’s just the free-lovin’ hippie in me talking! Artest joins a host of other (sometimes wtf?) athletes to chuck their legal names: LIST
*Might I suggest to Ronnie Metta, that whenever he leaves a room he offers up a: “Peace, OUT!”
I used to think this guy was an 11 on the “wackadoodle for no reason” scale but the more I see of Ron Ron, the more I like him.
Lakers player Ron Artest is the face of the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health’s campaign to get more people to seek treatment.
After the Lakers won the championship this year, Ron Ron publicly thanked his psychiatrist for helping him “relax a lot.” There’s nothing wrong with asking for help… I hope Ron’s efforts will help people see that.

That Ron Artest is a strange bird. But I like him. Here’s the Lakers champ (Ugh! Did I just type that?) on E!’s Chelsea Lately where they discussed getting in Chelsea’s pants and… punany… yeah. Go on and watch.
Um, did he really growl at his pants?
