I post this here, for it's of general interest imho

with the nba lockout issues and all, I had missed this change

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metta_World_Peace#Personal_life

:clueless:

first was Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali
then Lew Alcindor to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

then lost track of those more or less officially adopting their nicknames over real first names, for religious or other reasons

"Jamaal" Wilkes
Earvin "Magic" Johnson (did he ever make it official?)
"World" B.Free

....

this http://www.famousnamechanges.net/ is actually of little help

but didn't know about any further Surname change, in NBA at least

(of course in art and showbiz that's very usual instead, almost normal)

I laugh every time I see Chad Ochocinco Johnson.

Then I get him confused with Chad Brown (not the poker guy) and the NFL fans laugh at me.
