The back of his new Knicks jersey might still read "WORLD PEACE," but the basketball player formerly known as Ron Artest is apparently considering yet another name change to accompany his move to New York.

In an interview with ClevverNews (via ESPN New York), Metta World Peace acknowledged that another, albeit informal tweak to his identity is in the works.

"I'm not going to legally change my name until my career is over," World Peace said. "But we are going to do a name change, but I can't tell you what it is."
