LA Lakers power forward Ron Artest may have changed his name to Metta World Peace seven months ago, but don’t think he doesn’t have a sense of humor about his revamped image. When host Stevie Mack asks, “The hair dying, the new name, what is all that about?” Ron replies, “Life should be fun!”  Then Stevie snaps back, “But how should people address you now?” “A lot of people just call me Metta. But some people are confused. They call me World. They think my name is World Metta Peace. No, it’s Metta World Peace,” he continues, before explaining that Metta “means love, friendship, kindness—all that.”
