The Artist Formerly Known as Artest?

Ron Artest is changing his name to Metta World Peace.  (Anyone remember World B. Free?)  I can imagine announcers exclaiming "Peace!" whenever he scores.  So I see a benefit to this.  But do you think the name change is a bad idea?

Artest changing his name to World Peace

Yes, Ron is going the way of Cassius Clay, Lew Alcindor and Chad Johnson. Ron's filed a petition in L.A. County Superior Court to change his name to -- World Peace.

FYI, metta means loving, kindness, happiness and all that jazz.

We're told Ron wants to put the new last name -- Peace -- on the back of his L.A. Lakers' jersey.

These name changes are typically granted by a judge unless it would result in confusion or fraud.

Hey, give Peace a chance.

Delilah cut Sampson's hair and forced him into servitude and demise, powerful is woman, strong and vigilant, she brought her men off battlefields to carry them on her back to safety or to burial

World peace .I bet that will go over great in philly when the lakers trade him ..

I don't wish to be argumentative ,but I disagree with the Islamic belief that I should be killed! " If radical atheists decided they needed to kill believers to ensure their place in nothingness, I'd be criticizing that too."
