After changing his name from Ron Artest to Metta World Peace, fans and members of the media were excited to see the new number 15 Lakers jersey. World Peace is known for his off-the-court antics and this name change just proves that World Peace can do anything he puts his mind to.
At times the Lakers may be struggling and could go through tough times, but World Peace will always find a way to lift the morale of the team.
Still, despite his positive mentality, World Peace needs to improve his game if he wants to remain with the Lakers. World Peace came into this season ‘overweight’ and began his relationship with Mike Brown on the wrong foot. If World Peace wants to make an impact on the team, he must get back into basketball shape and work on his outside shooting.
