L.A. Lakers -- We'll Give 'Peace' a Chance!

6/25/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Los Angeles Lakers organization is totally down with World Peace ... telling TMZ the team is "happy to accommodate" Ron Artest's proposed name change.

A rep for the team tell us changing Ron's jersey from "Artest" to "World Peace" by next season shouldn't be a problem ... because there is still plenty of time to get that done. 

Of course, the team also claims they had no idea about Ron's plan -- which comes as no shock since Ron himself went on TMZ Live and admitted he didn't even tell his wife about the name change ... until TMZ broke the story. 

Peace out.
