    Cool Metta World Peace To Change Name This Season, Not Legally Though

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/kni...ce-name-change

    Many Knicks fans have wondered if Metta World Peace will go back to his original name -- Ron Artest -- now that he's back in New York.

    It looks like those fans may get their wish.

    World Peace said in an interview with ClevverNews that he plans to change his name this season, though not legally.

    "We are going to do do a name change, but I can't tell you what it is," World Peace told an interviewer with ClevverNews.

    World Peace added that he did not want to go through the process of changing his name legally again until he retires. "That's too much work," he said.

    So that means he will have "World Peace" on the back of his Knicks jersey this season, but may answer to another name.

    The New Yorker formerly known as Ron Artest legally changed his name to Metta World Peace in September 2011. He said at the time that he wanted to "inspire and bring youth together all around the world."
    Lol, can't wait to see what he chooses. This sure is going to be an entertaining season.

    I really wish NBATV would do The Association for us this year. Talk about quality television.
    The value of elite scoring ability, by Phil Jackson:

    "This is a guy, we recognize his talent, and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get sticky, grind-out, and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation thatís critical. Heís one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.Ē

    He'll probably change his name to "Queens Bridge".

    Agreed. NEED. Although, if he does indeed change it to Queensbridge, I would get that also.
