L.A. Lakers — We’ll Give ‘Peace’ a Chance!

Filed under: Ron Artest, TMZ Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers organization is totally down with World Peace … telling TMZ the team is “happy to accommodate” Ron Artest‘s proposed name change.


A rep for the team tell us changing Ron’s jersey from “Artest” to “World Peace” by next season shouldn’t be a problem … because there is still plenty of time to get that done. 

Of course, the team also claims they had no idea about Ron’s plan — which comes as no shock since Ron himself went on TMZ Live and admitted he didn’t even tell his wife about the name change … until TMZ broke the story. 

Peace out.
