Metta World Peace is moving beyond the whole "Metta World Peace" thing. Now that the former Ron Artest has moved on to China to play with the Sichuan Blue Whales, the ex-NBA Defensive Player of the Year has decided to change his name for the second time in three years, according to Yahoo Sports.


New high-profile import playing for Chinese basketball Association club Sichuan Blue Whales is known as Ron Artest but intends to change his name to "Panda Friend" in honor of his move to China.


World Peace, who is known in China as "Ci Shiping", a literal translation of "Metta World Peace," now plans to name himself after China's giant panda, a precious animal based in Southwest China's Sichuan province, where his new team is also based.
