That is The Pandas Friend, better known as Metta World Peace or, as his parents named him, Ron Artest.

He was getting in some run at one of the best pickup spots in Los Angeles, Venice Beach, where they have a summer league.

And he wore a panda costume. Because of course he did, I mean he will play this season in China. I have no other comment.
