Metta World Peace Promotes Mental Health Awareness in PSA

After another season with the Los Angeles Lakers, the man formerly known as Ron Artest changed his name to Metta World Peace, nearly caved in James Harden’s face with a vicious elbow and continuing the notorious reputation as one of the most unpredictable players in the NBA.

During his time in Los Angeles, World Peace has tried to rehabilitate himself in terms of mental health. After winning his first NBA title with the Lakers back in 2010, World Peace was on the right track staying out of trouble and avoiding conflicts on the basketball floor.

The altercation with Harden that resulted in a seven-game suspension humbled World Peace a bit and reminded many people of the Artest’s outbursts in the past, but now things appear to be back to normal with World Peace making his presence on and off the floor.

After making an appearance in the Drew League last weekend, World Peace followed it up staring in a mental health awareness Public Service Announcement (PSA) as Metta Man!
