Yes, Ron is going the way of Cassius Clay, Lew Alcindor and Chad Johnson.  Ron’s filed a petition in L.A. County Superior Court to change his name to — World Peace.

FYI, metta means loving, kindness, happiness and all that jazz.

We’re told Ron wants to put the new last name — Peace — on the back of his L.A. Lakers’ jersey.

These name changes are typically granted by a judge unless it would result in confusion or fraud. 

Hey, give Peace a chance.
