Ron Artest's attorney has filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court for his client to change his name to Metta World Peace. An August 26 court date was set to consider the petition.

...Words escape me.

When Lloyd B Free changed his name to World B Free, it was cool and memorable. Now, if Artest changed his name to some derivative of I B Crazed, it would work. Otherwise, he is just Crazy Ron.

I hope Ron finds out it's spelled "Meta" before August 26th.

Artest looks to be going for the Buddhist word Metta:

"lovingkindness, the Buddhist virtue of kindness; also called maitri"

We're going to hear as much from Ron Artest during the NBA lockout as we've heard from Chad Ochocinco during the NFL lockout.

You know what would be really funny?

If Mike Brown changes his name to Phil Jackson. Ok, what if Kobe goes and changes his name to Michael Jordan.

Anyway, Ron Artest is a idiot.
