09:45 AM ET 07.20 | An identity crisis for the man formerly known as Ron Artest? New Knicks forward Metta World Peace, who changed his name from Artest two years ago, is embarking on a standup comedy tour this summer, according to a photo of a poster he tweeted Friday. The ad reads "Metta World Peace presents," but it also says the host will be Ron Artest. Huh.

Is this what we're calling the Knick's season already?

After a run on the Lakers tour I'd have to agree that Ron-Ron can be a successful comedian!

World Peace doing standup? That's like Kobe counseling rape victims. That's like Don King teaching an ethics class. That's like Mike Vick working as a vet's assistant. That's like Allen Iverson living within his means. That's like oh, whatever!

I thought his regular life itself was a stand up comedy!!!
