Metta World Peace To Change Name Back to Ron Artest So He Doesn’t Taint The Legacy of Metta World Peace Again
Metta World Peace has said that he will change his name back to Ron Artest so he doesn’t taint the peaceful legacy and reputation of Metta World Peace again. “You know, now that we’re playing OKC in the second round, it is gonna get real ugly. Me and (James) Harden might exchange a couple elbows now and then. Kendrick (Perkins) and I might also throw a few punches. So it is probably better that I change my name back to Ron Artest so that everyone will remember Artest doing those actions and not Metta”, World Peace said after the Lakers’ victory over Denver. World Peace said that he will change his name back to “Metta World Peace” after the series with OKC.
Metta World Peace was suspended for seven games following an ugly incident with Oklahoma City Thunder’s James Harden. Watch the video below to see the incident.
