No, seriously, Metta World Peace is Metta World Peace this season

I think a lot of us thought when Ron Artest announced he was changing his name to Metta World Peace that he was kidding. I mean, no one would actually do that, right? Another crazy Ron Artest thing, like playing in Britain, or being a rapper.


From the Lakers’ official Twitter feed at practice today:


So it’s real.

It’s like a unicorn showed up on the Lakers’ court.

    Is this what an implosion sounds like?

    He is doing some good charity work. Seems to be trying to make amends for some his previous errors. The name is really dumb but some hippies will run out and buy his jersey. When you sell your championship ring for charity you are just a different kinda dude.

    There’s something so great about someone misspelling “retarded.”

    I liked him better when he was attacking fans in Detroit…

    Now Kevin Garnet needs to change his name to Plato War Games and the Lakers/Celtics matchup will be awesome.
