It looks like Metta World Peace is taking his upcoming name change very seriously. After recently inking a deal to play for the Sichuan Blue Whales of the Chinese Basketball Association, World Peace revealed on Twitter that he would be going by a new moniker, The Panda's Friend. While the change has not yet been official, it looks like the former NBA star is already getting a head of himself—and we mean way ahead of himself.
Check out the wild sneakers that World Peace will be balling in during the upcoming CBA season. The low-profile sneakers feature a stuffed panda head as a tongue and come in white and black. The panda head also doesn't come off, which is definitely going to be a sight. Just imagine World Peace going H.A.M. on the boards and throwing 'bows while rocking panda sneakers. Kind of awesome, right?
