Ohhh that Ron-Ron! Los Angeles Lakers forward and certifiable nut job Ron Artest filed a petition with the Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday to legally change his name to Metta World Peace. He sites personal reasons for the change in his petition. I'm thinking mental reasons would be more accurate.

Lloyd Bernard Free, who played in the NBA from 1975-1988, changed his name to World B. Free in 1981.
When asked about whether Artest will have "Peace" or "World Peace" on the back of his jersey, Kupchak said, "I'm an advocate of World Peace."
