Metta World Peace Jersey Unveiled at Media Day

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.

If World Peace wants to make an impact on the team, he must get back into basketball shape and work on his outside shooting.
