RON ARTEST FIGHTS THE LAW (OF GRAVITY) AND THE LAW WON

December 26, 2009

LEBRON JAMES IS A TOUGH OPPONENT-BUT NOT AS TOUGH AS GRAVITY

The holidays have been rough on the Los Angeles Lakers. First, the basketball team was beaten so badly by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Christmas that the usually laid back LA sports fans showed their displeasure by showering the court with promotional foam fingers. Forward Ron Artest fouled out while guarding James in the 102-87 loss.

Following the game, Artest says he was injured tripping over a box in his house and falling down a flight of stairs. Artest suffered a banged head and an elbow injury in the fall and missed the Lakers game against Sacramento Sunday.

RON ARTEST USED TO GET HIS HENNESY ON AT HALFTIME OF NBA GAMES

Oh, boy! Wacky NBA forward Ron Artest has made a number of head-scratching moves throughout his NBA career. The latest? Artest’s admission that he used to drink alcohol at halftime of games early in his professional basketball career. Throughout the years Artest has:

* admitted to applying for a part time job at Circuit City in order to get the employee discount when he was a Chicago Bulls rookie (after signing a multi-million dollar contract)

* nearly starting a riot by brawling in Detroit thus costing himself a 73 game suspension and $7 million in fines

* written an advice column called “Ask Ron-Ron” where he once told his male readers to spend as little money as possible on dinner for their dates

* once posed for a photo for ESPN The Magazine with his entire 60 plus member entourage of people leeching off him

* is currently being investigated for welfare fraud in Indiana

However, Artest’s latest admission is mind boggling. He told The Sporting News:

“I used to drink Hennessy…at halftime. I (kept it) in my locker. I’d just walk to the liquor store and get it.”

Geeze! There has been plenty of hand wringing over Artest’s latest admission but, honestly, what’s the NBA going to do? They can’t really punish the guy for something he says he did ten years ago that, though incredibly stupid, is not illegal or even against the NBA collective bargaining agreement.

According to an Indianapolis tv station, Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest and his sister are being investigated for welfare fraud. Artest’s sister is suspected of receiving $34,000 in public assistance while simultaneously taking money from the NBA star to pay all of her bills. Police raided the home of Latoya Holmes-Ivey and her three children.

Artest was apparently turned in by one of his former CPAs.

RON ARTEST STILL A NUT

September 9, 2009

NBA star Ron Artest is a strange cat.

Artest  just did an interview with a Sacramento radio station where he said that he and John Green are now buddies. In case you didn’t remember, Green is the Detroit fan who threw a beer on Artest a couple of years ago setting off the “Malice at the Palace.” It was one of the ugliest incidents in NBA history amd damn near set off a riot. Some would say a RACE riot.

But now, all is forgiven between Artest and Green. Ron-Ron actually tracked Green down (via his Twitter friends.) Turns out they are kindred spirits. Probably because they’re both nuts. Artest says the pair “immediately vibed” and plan on doing appearances together in the future for charity.

There’s even audio of the interview which you can link to: HERE. Enjoy.

IDIOT RON ARTEST GIVES OUT HIS PHONE NUMBER ON TWITTER

Lunatic Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest gave out his phone number on Twitter. To prove that it was real, Artest made a YouTube video of himself answering all the calls he got-while he was visiting China.

RON-RON TO THE LAKERS

RON ARTEST: LAKERS NEW SMOKIN’ SMALL FORWARD

Los Angeles sports just got a little more interesting. On the same day that suspended outfielder Manny Ramirez returns to baseball’s L.A. Dodgers, the Lakers have signed a guy who is arguably basketball’s biggest wacko.

Controversial free agent forward Ron Artest is going to the World Champion Los Angeles Lakers. Artest will replace Trevor Ariza as the Lakers starting small forward.

ESPN is reporting that Artest has agreed to a three-year $18 million contract with LA. Artest is actually taking a pay cut to join the Lakers from the Houston Rockets.

When he isn’t starting riots, or moonlighting as the world’s greatest advice columnist, Artest is a GREAT defensive basketball player who is coming off a season where he averaged 17.1 points per game.

Just hours after Artest agreed to terms with the Lakers, Houston apparently signed Trevor Ariza. So, in effect, the Lakers have traded Artest for Ariza.

SIGNING WITH THE LAKERS WILL MAKE ARTEST’S LAS VEGAS CLUBBING AND POOL-HOPPING MORE FREQUENT

RON ARTEST IS AWESOME!

During a postgame interview following last night’s Lakers/Rockets NBA playoff matchup, Houston forward Ron Artest said the tough play was nothing. Artest said he once witnessed an altercation during a New York playground game where a guy was stabbed to death with a table leg.

Amazingly, the story appears to be true. Such an incident actually happened.
