Metta World Peace is letting fans pick a nickname for him
Contrary to a rumor, Metta World Peace isn't changing his name. He's just picking a nickname.
A rumor started popping around that Metta World Peace , formerly Ron Artest, would be changing his name again.
He's not changing anything. He's just looking to add a little something extra.
Don't believe anyone who said I'm changing my name again. I am letting fans give me a new nick name. I am not legally changing my name.— Metta World Peace (@MettaWorldPeace) July 26, 2013
