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.
