Metta World Peace
The artist formerly known as Ron Artest changed his name to Metta World Peace after a midlife crisis, and what an ironic name at was. Metta was anything but peaceful in his NBA days — just ask James Harden. Instead Metta was ejected 11 times in his career, three times in a playoff game, most all time, and he was suspended an incredible 13 different times in his career.
The longest suspension came after one of the NBA’s ugliest incidents, when Artest went into the crowd and punched a fan in the Malice at the Palace. That’s not who Metta is anymore, but it’s still pretty crazy that same dude changed his actual name to World Peace.
