Ron Artest delayed on ‘Metta World Peace’ name change

Mr. World Peace has to wait

While some celebrities are changing their names to something a little more realistic like Seth Green is, NBA player Ron Artest has decided to change his name to Metta World Peace.

Unfortunately it looks as though like Ron is going to have to wait on his big name change.  A Los Angeles court commissioner says that Artest’s outstanding traffic warrants will delay the name change process until at least September 15.

Apparently this did not stop Artest from celebrating his name change with a barbecue.
