Ron Artest

Metta World Peace (born Ron Artest, November 13, 1979[1] ) is an American basketball player. He plays for the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA.

Ron Artest has had a very interesting NBA career. He was drafted out of St. John's University by the Chicago Bulls and was known primarily as a defensive stopper. Later, he played for the Indiana Pacers, where he was involved in one of the most vicious NBA fights of all-time.[2] After leaving Indiana in disgrace, he played briefly for a couple teams before settling with the Lakers and becoming the "Robin" to Kobe Bryant's "Batman."

Today Ron Artest is respected in the NBA for his loyalty, and his quality play for the Lakers shows that he was worthy of a second chance at an NBA career.
