Metta World Peace Still Signing Autographs as Ron Artest
When we posted our story last week about Metta World Peace saying he got bored on defense because he was too good, we took a lot of crap for calling him by his former name, Ron Artest. Turns out our decision wasn’t too disrespectful — Metta isn’t even at the point where he’s signing autographs by his new name.
Metta’s personal assistant arrived at the team’s practice facility recently to pick up autographed basketballs but realized they said “Ron Artest” on them. Metta explained that his new signature isn’t ready yet.
“I don’t like the signature yet,” World Peace later explained. “It’s not how I want it yet. I’m trying to figure out how to sign it.”
My vote goes for a fancy M and the peace sign. That’s fast, simple, and sweet. How can Ron Ron complain about that?
