Wouldn't that mean having to get a new ID, social security card, etc...? Seems like more trouble than it's worth, or maybe he's actually in witness protection.

It's a LOT less trouble when you have the money to pay people to do the paperwork for you.

And I guess it's because he looks at a name like a fashion accessory... if he doesn't like how it fits him, he simply swaps it out for something else. Definitely not a common outlook, but hey, it's his name. He can do whatever he wants with it.

Though personally, if I want to express myself I'll just change my clothes, work out habits, or write/post something... ;)

because he is an attention whore who is no longer relevant on the court. Imagine the crazier things he will do when he is older and craves more attention.

Did he change it again I thought he just did it the once?

I think it is an existentialist thing.

1. He nuts.

2. He wants the attention because he certainly isn't getting it on the court now.

He's Panda's Friend now.

He lacks a personality, so he needs to be different by choosing stupid names. I prefer not to even give him any attention.

this is the same guy who tried to get a job at Circuit City to get an employee discount, showed up to practice in a bath robe, asked his GM for a couple weeks off midseason because he was tired from promoting his rap album, and started the Brawl at the Palace.

Uh, he is insane....that is why

And that's why you posted in a thread related to him.

Correct. How insightful of you to point out such a meatheaded fact. But since this thread doesn't involve him in any facet, at least on a personal level, I think I can maintain plausible deniability. After all, am I the only person on the internet that posts in a thread about a subject matter that does not interest them, or downright annoys them? C'mon now.

As crazy as people think Ron is, he is also pretty dam smart being a math major and all. Anyways, when someone famous changes their name to "world peace" I give them my respect.

What is his new name ?

Tugg Speedman: I killed one, Rick. The thing I love most in the world.
Rick Peck: Vivica, get off the line now!
[to Speedman]
Rick Peck: A hooker? All right, you killed a hooker. Calm down. Here's what you're gonna do. Get your hands on some bleach, some hydrogen peroxide and a shitload of lime.
Tugg Speedman: No, a panda. I killed a panda.
Rick Peck: Amanda? Come on, dude. I mean, that's probably not even her real name.

Really? Changing his name isn't personal?

There's at least two better candidates for who started the Pacers-Pistons brawl:

Ben Wallace
John Green

Maybe he's trying to get tryouts with certain teams but they won't let him, so he's changing his name so they don't realize they are accepting Artest for a tryout?
