Metta World Peace
Metta Sandiford-ArtestThe former Bulls/Pacers/Kings/Rockets/Lakers/Knicks player on Inside the Green Room with Danny Green:
It was embarrassing. So, I did think about changing my name back. But then I got used. People got used it.
But right now, it’s funny because I got married, and my name now is Metta Sandiford-Artest. So, I actually took my wife’s last name.
Sandiford-Artest is married to Maya Sandiford.
As Sandiford-Artest said, he loves attention. This gets him more.
But The Pandas Friend didn’t stick as a name. We’ll see whether Metta Sandiford-Artest is more lasting.
