Ron Artest - Metta World Peace on NewsFeed - Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest has filed court documents to legally change his name to "Metta World Peace." Note to the Lakers: trade him immediately, you brought him in to choke people not hold hands with them and sing kumbaya... You guys remember when he climbed into the stands in Detroit and beat up fans? Man I miss those days, back when basketball was fun. I heard Las Vegas bookies have a new bet for next season on how long it takes "World Peace" to get ejected for fighting... I put my bet on the 2nd week of practice. I want to see that news headline, "World Peace hates Pau Gasol."
