The corky, off-centered, and very charismatic Bball player Metta World Peace formally known as Ron Artest has announced he will once again go through a name change. In an effort to celebrate his new career in the Chinese Basketball Association, Metta will now go by the name Panda Friend. You read that correctly, Panda Friend.
Pandas are near and dear to the people of China especially in the Sichuan province Metta, err we mean Panda will be playing. His new Chinese contract is reported to be worth $1.43 million, which will make him the highest paid player in the league. Panda Friend is scheduled to hit the court this coming season so it will be interesting to see how many Panda Friend jerseys will fly off the shelves.
