<a href="http://s977.photobucket.com/albums/ae252/AshleyBurns1979/?action=view&current=Artest.gif" target="_blank"> Last year, after changing his name to Metta World Peace, the Artest formerly known as Ron set out to openly prove that he’s a good person with a kind heart. For example, on September 21, 2011, World Peace donated more than $285,000 to mental health charities after he sold his NBA Championship ring. It seemed as if he was changing for the better, ever since, you know, that whole thing in Detroit. But I’m sure the better majority of us still had a thought all the way in the back of our brains – “When’s this dude going to lose his sh*t again and try to kill someone?” And all it took was a downward spiral in his personal play this season for World Peace to get overly excited about a dunk and try to decapitate an opponent like he did yesterday against James Harden and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Artest – because who can even call him World Peace now without laughing harder than before? – was ejected from the Lakers’ 114-106 double overtime victory over the Thunder just before the end of the first half after he viciously elbowed Harden in the side of the head, but before we get all preachy, just know that the elbow – that you can watch over and over and over above – <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/MettaWorldPeace">was an accident, okay</a>.
