Ron Artest is Crazy
Or should I say the artist formerly known as Artest. Ron Artest has found his way into the names once again a la Ocho Cinco as he is currently petitioning to change his name to Metta World Peace. An August 26th court date has been set to hear his petition. I'm not even sure what to say about that. Ron or.. Metta... has always been a bit off. But sometimes you forget with all of the sideshow antics that he's actually a pretty good basketball player. The 2004 Defensive Player of the Year won a title with the Lakers in 2010. In his 14 year NBA career spent with the Bulls, Pacers, Kings, Rockets and Lakers, Artest has averaged 14.8 points per game. This past season was the first one in his career that he didn't average double figures (8.5 ppg). It remains unclear should the name change go through if the back of his jersey will read 'PEACE' or 'WORLD PEACE'.
