Metta World Peace Playing for China as 'The Panda's Friend'
Metta World Peace, formerly Ron Artest, has decided to change his name again to "Panda Friend" after signing on as a forward with the Sichuan Blue Whales in the Chinese Basketball Association club. The name change is meant to honor his move to China, as the giant panda is a "precious animal based in Southwest China's Sichuan province." Despite fans tweeting the new nickname, World Peace assured the public that the Chinese translation was actually "The Panda's Friend."
