Metta World Peace is chaning his name to "Panda Friend" in honor of his decision to sign in the Chinese Basketball Association.

"New Chinese name coming soon. You guys are going to love it! " World Peace posted on his Chinese twitter-like social media Sina Weibo.

World Peace came into the NBA as Ron Artest and changed it ahead of the 11-12 season.

World Peace signed with the Sichuan Blue Whales last week.
