Metta World Peace (born Ronald William Artest, Jr. on November 13, 1979) is an American professional basketball player who most recently played for the Sichuan Blue Whales of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA). He was known as Ron Artest before legally changing his name in September 2011.

World Peace gained a reputation as one of the league's premier defenders as he won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2004, when he was also named an NBA All-Star and earned All-NBA honors. He was a participant in several controversial on-court incidents, most notably the 2004 Pacers–Pistons brawl, and is known for his sometimes eccentric and outspoken behavior. He won an NBA championship in 2010 as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Artest played high school basketball at La Salle Academy and college basketball at St. John's University. World Peace has played for six teams in the NBA.
