Ron Artest May Be Changing His Name to "The Pandas Friend" Now That He's Playing in China

Metta World Peace, or “Ron Artest” as he was once known, signed a contract to play with the Sichuan Blue Whales of the Chinese Basketball Association earlier this week. Now he is considering another name change. According to China Daily, World Peace is going to change his name to “Panda Friend.” Wait, nope.

“The Pandas Friend.” So, is it like “The Panda’s Friend” as in the friend of a panda? Or is it supposed to sound like, “The Pandas, Friend?” Either way it makes more sense than Metta World Peace.
