Metta World Peacea aka The Artist Formerly Known as Ron "So Gutta, So Hood" Artest aka Tru Warier aka Lil' Ron Ron. One of the biggest motivating factors behind David Stern implementing the dress code was the infamous "Malice at the Palace" brawl where World Peace (oh, the sweet, sweet irony of that name) lunged into the crowd and beat a Detroit Pistons fan for throwing a cup of beer at him. Even if Stern's legacy is a condescending move towards hip-hop culture and style, the one consolation is we never again saw a T-shirt with "So Hood" spelled out in sequins.
