Found April 23, 2012 on Lost My Way:
Since I'm from Boston I hate every Laker that there is. But there's one that I hate more than the rest and that's Ron Artest, or Metta World Peace if you take that seriously. It seems that Artest is determined to bring peace into the world whether people want it or not, one elbow at a time. After making a good play and beating his chest like the class act that he is, he elbows James Harden directly in the head. He obviously tries to contest that it was an accident but nobody believes that.

When I see it in real-time it does look like an accident, in the sense that he meant to elbow Harden, just not in the head. When you elbow somebody in the head though you're immediately aware of it and would go to help them up. That's why he is and always will be a scumbag. A person who jumps into the crowd to start fights, thank his therapist on national TV and elbow people in the temple isn't a exactly role model material. Although I don't watch athletes play sports because they're upstanding citizens so it feels like a moot point.

TL;DR Ron Artest changing his name to Metta World Peace hasn't actually made him more peaceful.
