Call Ron Artest ‘Metta World Peace’

After thanking his psychiatrist following the NBA Finals and auctioning off his first / only championship ring to raise awareness for mental health, Ron-Ron has officially filed paperwork to legally change his name to “Metta World Peace“. Just when you thought you seen it all from this guy, he has more.

Artest’s attorney filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday seeking the change. The 31-year-old NBA star was born Ronald William Artest Jr. In the court documents, Artest cites personal reasons for wanting to make the change.
An Aug. 26 court date was set to consider the petition. The petition filing was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.

The Los Angeles County Superior Court is expected to agree to Artest‘s request (of course) and Lakers-fans should be able to pre-order their “World Peace” jerseys any day now. The move is reminisced of Lloyd B. Free changing his first name to “World“ in 1981. Please never change Ron-Ron.
