Metta lets fans pick nickname

Are you like many Americans, thinking Metta World Peace is a

cumbersome and silly way to refer to the basketball player born as

Ron Artest?

Well, World Peace is nothing if not a man of the people, and

he’s giving you an opportunity to fix it.

World Peace wants to clear up a rumor, however.

He says he’ll be choosing his favorite submission in two weeks.

When you visit his website, there is no obvious place to enter your

submission, so we’re assuming you just use the contact page and

cross your fingers.

World Peace recently signed a contract with the New York Knicks,

his sixth NBA team.
