Ron Artest plans to attend name-change hearing
Lakers forward Ron Artest will find out first-hand whether he will become Metta World Peace.
His publicist, Courtney Barnes, told The Times that Artest plans to attend Friday's hearing at L.A. Superior Court, scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Artest had an Aug. 26 hearing postponed because of two traffic tickets, but Barnes said that shouldn't be an issue.
"It's all resolved," he said.
