Meta World Peace

a fouler most foul

I'm changing my name again to Mega Pain Train. That'll sell some jerseys!

Not to be confused by “world peace” as a concept, this contemptible Los Angeles Lakers star used to be called Ron Artest.  Under his old name, he brought a new level of volatile behavior to professional basketball and helped set off the infamous 2004 “Malice in the Palace” in Detroit.  After that incident Artest changed his name to Metta World Peace (probably because most beauty pageant contestants say they want world peace), and tried to change his behavior through charitable endeavors.  Old habits die hard, however, and when he elbowed opposing player James Harden to the ground his elevation to the despicable list was secured simply by what the facts “artest.”
