Ron Artest- Metta World Peace In “Dancing With the Stars”


A change in his name may not be of much help to the NBA player formerly known as Ron Artest when Season 13 of “Dancing With the Stars” debuts on Monday. Artest, who has changed his name to Metta World Peace may now bring a more positive outlook.

However, the fact remains that learning his steps on the dance floor is far more difficult than executing the triangle offense on the basketball court. As it is, Artest also struggled adjusting to his team, the Los Angeles Lakers, for two year now.

It may be too early to be pessimistic but Artest also recognizes his own limitations. The 260-pound, 6-foot-7 L.A. Laker seldom had to use fancy footwork on the hardcourt like Kobe Bryant would. Instead, Artest would rather use his muscular frame to bang bodies on the basketball court.

Artest still has time to work on his footwork with partner Peta Murgatroyd. Who knows? Two professional athletes have won at DWTS in the past. Emmit Smith and Hines Ward have won in 2006 and 2010 respectively.

If Ron Artest can evolve into Metta World Peace, he has a shot at winning Dancing With the Stars Season 13. It may be a long shot that goes way beyond the three-point line.
