Found December 13, 2011 on That NBA Lottery Pick:

Since the NBA was still under lockout mode, Metta World Peace AKA Ron Artest was talking with reporters and one of them asked him a question about being in shape for the NBA season.

Metta decided it was the best time to joke with one of the female reporters about if she saws his abs, she might leave her husband:

Metta World Peace meets the world

The NBA is back, and so is Ron Artest. Wait, I mean Metta World Peace. World Peace, formerly Ron Artest, made his name change official nearly two months ago after a three-week delay due to unpaid parking tickets. On Sunday, we got our first glimpse of Mr. World Peace's new Lakers jersey. The 32-year-old forward will still sport the No. 15 that he wore last season -- which he...

Meta World Peace (Ron Artest) is Really Glad We Don't Keep Our Baby Teeth Until We are 20 or 30 Years Old (Video)

Has to be one of the weirdest minds in the world.  Ron Artest or Meta World Peace was asked by LA Times reporter Melissa Roland at Lakers training camp why the rookies call him Meta World Peace and the veterans call him Ron Artest.  World Peace responded with one of the most unusual answers ever.  He was apparently thinking about baby teeth at that moment and went on for a minute...

Ron Artest, Err Metta World Peace’s Jersey And Abs

Ron Artest’s Metta World Peace jersey is just completely unbelievable, especially when you remember that this man started the Malice At The Palace brawl. Well that’s in the past, but Peace was questioned about his offseason work regiment and if he was overweight, in which his answer was… Share this:

Metta World Peace Is Just As Insane As Ron Artest

Ron Artest's jersey now says "World Peace" on the back, and presumably he's become an entirely different person since the name change became official. But there's one Artest quality we can still count on: Metta World Peace is still totally insane. More »

Metta World Peace Brags About Abs, Tells Reporter She Would Leave Her Husband If She Saw Them

Metta World Peace is crazy. This week, the artist formerly known as Ron Artest took offense to the notion that he became out of shape during the NBA lockout. "I heard I was out of shape," Artest said, according to The Los Angeles Times. "This one guy said I was like, out of shape, and I should be [let go through the amnesty clause]."

Video: Metta World Peace Thanks Jesus For His… Teeth?

We have seen some (and heard) some crazy things from Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace, the ballplayer formerly known as Ron Artest. But his off-the-wall answer to a question from L.A. Times reporter Melissa Rohlin’s may take the cake: World Peace has said that he wants to take up football or boxing once his [...]

Video: Metta World Peace thanks Jesus for the way teeth work

With NBA training camps back in full swing, reporters are curious to get players' opinions on the state of things after the lockout. For Lakers forward Metta World Peace (nee Ron Artest), that means lots of people are asking him about how teammates are reacting to his new name. Melissa Rohlin of Lakers Now, the Los Angeles Times Lakers blog, asked why rookies call him "...

Video: Metta World Peace thanks Jesus for his teeth

I thank Jesus we have the NBA back so rather than running posts on the intricacies of anti-trust law we can run videos of Metta World Peace (the artist formerly known as Ron Artest) thanking the Jesus for the fact that our teeth fall out when we are babies, not when we are in our…

No, seriously, Metta World Peace is Metta World Peace this season

I think a lot of us thought when Ron Artest announced he was changing his name to Metta World Peace that he was kidding. I mean, no one would actually do that, right?
