Ron Artest Reportedly in Talks to Join Dancing with the Stars

Lakers forward Ron Artest, who has legally petitioned for his name to be changed to Metta World Peace, is reportedly in discussions to become the latest athlete to twinkle his toes on Dancing with the Stars. The Hollywood Gossip says Artest is “seriously thinking about it.”

Filming for the popular show ends in November, which presents a scheduling problem for Artest if the NBA lockout ends and the league’s season begins on schedule in late October.

Past athletes who’ve participated on DWTS include Hines Ward, Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith and Kurt Warner.
