LOS ANGELES– Ron Artest has never had a problem changing things. Never had a problem doing big, bold things. He’s changed his number from 15 to 93 to 37 to back to 15. He’s changed teams multiple times. Heck, he’s changed personalities.

Now, he’s changing his name.

According to TMZ, Artest filed a petition with the L.A. County Superior Court to switch his name to “Metta World Peace.” Yes, Metta World Peace. (Metta, if you’re wondering, which I’m sure you are, means love, happiness, kindness, etc.)

The motivation evidently is so that Artest can have “Peace” on the back of his jersey. Noble, Ron-Ron. Er, I mean, Metta-Metta. Like Chad Johnson who is now Chad Ochocinco, this will likely be granted. Most judges allow name changes unless it could result in confusion or fraud.

So if this works out, Ron Artest will now be, “starting, at small forward, from St. John’s… Mettaaaaaaaa World Peace!” For anyone else, it doesn’t work. For Ron Artest, it’s a beautiful thing.
