Ron Artest has reportedly filed a petition in L.A. County Superior Court to change his name to World Peace.
That's right - the guy who violently charged into the stands a few years ago will wear the last name Peace on the back of his jersey. Priceless.

I know TMZ may not be the most reliable source, but they say he filed in court, so that's a pretty concrete detail... Still, put a "?" in the thread title just in case.


Ron Artest: I'm Changing My Name ... RADICALLY

Say goodbye to Ron Artest and HELLOOOO to Metta World Peace ... Mr. Metta World Peace to you.

Yes, Ron is going the way of Cassius Clay, Lew Alcindor and Chad Johnson. Ron's filed a petition in L.A. County Superior Court to change his name to -- World Peace.

FYI, metta means loving, kindness, happiness and all that jazz.

We're told Ron wants to put the new last name -- Peace -- on the back of his L.A. Lakers' jersey.

These name changes are typically granted by a judge unless it would result in confusion or fraud.

Hey, give Peace a chance.http://www.tmz.com/2011/06/23/ron-artest-world-peace-name-change-los-angeles-lakers-l-a/

Just one time, ONE TIME, this season I want Ron Ron to have a monster game. Why? So that during the post-game interview I can hear the opposing coach say, "we lost this game because we couldn't contain World Peace." Or maybe the Lakers will suck and we'll get to hear someone say, "World Peace really brought us down this year."

Man, there are so many great possibilities. Please let it happen.
