Finding out NBA standout Ron Artest is planning to legally change his name to Metta World Peace started me thinking Friday afternoon.
I don’t know why, but I’ve always been somewhat fascinated by athletes’ names. Does a name make an athlete? I have my doubts, but it sure seems like there have been some wild ones over the years. And I’m not talking about legally changed names like Chad Ochocinco. I’m talking about real names, believe it or not.
