Well just when you thought the story of former NBA basketball player Metta World Peace couldn't be any weirder, the eccentric basketball player unveiled new shoes that feature an attached teddy bear and are "Panda Friendly."

Last month, Metta World Peace announced that after signing with a Chinese basketball team, he would change his name to The Pandas Friend (with no apostrophe). The shoes will be available in November in black and white on Metta World Peace's website for $79.99. The site will also offer back and white panda T-shirts.

The basketball player will be playing for the Sichuan Blue Whales, and he recently arrived in China to prepare for the upcoming season.
