Get ready to call Metta World Peace by another new name.
The 34-year-old basketball star, who was born Ron Artest but changed his name to Metta World Peace back in September 2011, will be going by a brand-new moniker when he makes his move to the Chinese Basketball Association as the new forward for the Sichuan Blue Whales.
