Ron Artest, the Lakers' forward, filed papers to change his name. "Metta" isn't a tribute to this site, but rather is a Buddhist virtue of kindness. Recently, he received the NBA's citizenship award for the 2010-11 season. Back in 2004,
he was suspended for a brawl in the stands, but that was when he was playing for the Pacers.
