Codeblack Report-The Athlete Who Can’t Stop Giving, Metta World Peace Now Auctioning One Of His Best Trophies
In September 2011, the all-star NBA basketball player formerly known as Ron Artest legally changed his name to Metta World Peace, and has been proudly displaying the message “World Peace” on the back of his L.A. Lakers jersey ever since. This may seem like some kind of crazy attention-seeking stunt, but Metta consistently puts his money where his name is. The 35-year-old 6’7″ small forward has just put his Defensive Player of the Year (DPOY) trophy up for auction, and is planning to donate the funds to a mental health awareness charity.
