Mike Lantry, 1972
Should have been Palace Fighter
gotta love ron, or metta, but he is not wired like the rest of us
Marv: Hard foul there by World Peace. The crowd is really letting him have it. Uh, um, he's looking pretty, uh, oh Peace is going to war with the fat guy in the 4th row.
I would rather slam my penis in a car door then buy this jersey. The pain would go away eventually but the picture of me in that jersey would last foreva.
Sixers' guard Lloyd Free changed to World B Free.
True. But you leave out the best part. "World" was his nickname. The day it became his legal name, friends gave him a new nickname: Lloyd.
Just keep calling the guy Ron.
One of my favorite players when I was a kid.
Ron Artest is not as bad as some people make him out to be. I did not agree with the Palace thing, but what would you do if someone threw a drink at you that the person drunk out of? Since the incident he has not been in any serious troubles and works with some charities helping out unfortunate children and abused animals.
I wouldn't start a brawl...
or whatever he wants to be called is an idiot!
This is just as dumb as Chad ochocinko Johnson
I guess, if he can't standout with his skills on the court, he might as well stick out like a sore thumb with his new "name".
Trying to feed his family, right???
Gotta give Chad his props. When he changed his name he gave headline writers everywhere goosebumps. Off a bad game: "Ochocinco Mucho Stinko".
"World Peace"? Can Stephen Jackson call himself "Headcase" too?
Imagine WorldPeace being posted by Headcase, or Headcase getting a technical, allowing World Peace a couple free throws....."World Peace is shooting about 47% from the floor tonight...."
Artest is setting himself up for so many good one-liners...
He is a complete and utter idiot, he has not changed, he is still seeking attention. He was, is, and will be a joke, whatever he is called.
It's just funny as hell. That's all that needs to be said.
RonRon is as crazy as they come but the guy has donated more to charity on a salary percentage basis than most players ever have in the league. He also was a math major at St. Johns!!
Behind the scenes the talk is alot of what RonRon does is an act to promote the hype and keep his name out in the media. The guy grewup in one of the most dangerous places in America and while his life/social skills have needed serious work over the years the fact that he survived and got out of Queensbridge while continuing to give back says alot about the real Ron Artest.
In high school my brother dated a foreign exchange student from Denmark named Metta. She was ridiculously hot, too. Which made no sense that she was dating my idiot brother, but her english wasn't that great, so maybe she was just confused.
