What an ASS. Get paid MILLIONS of dollars and to treat your job like this? The more I think about this jerk, the more infuriated I get.

I think the best quote from his little interview was "I don't know what means, integrity."

Wow.

EDIT:

Found a quote from Chuck on Inside the NBA last night: He's got problems. We could all joke around that his elevator doesn't go all the way to the top or his ice tray's not full, but he needs help. I hope someone in the Indiana organization or someone in his family pulls him aside and says 'Ron, we need you to be considerate and think about what you do.'I truly believe in my heart, whether I'm wrong or right in my heart, I think Ron Artest has pyschological problems. I think Indiana has to trade him because when guys say 'I don't know if I can trust him' that means No, they can't.

That's probably true Kawshen. I think this is so ridiculous, I can't even find my usual indignation. I figure, this guy has done far worse over the past few years to warrant my indignation. I remember reading an article in ESPN the Mag a few years ago about how rough of a life he's had, so I guess it would make sense that he's "not all there." But of course, one could point to the fact that this shows another level of the pro athlete's sense of entitlement, as if they don't actually have to work for a living. Yeah, it's a game, but very few people in the world get to the top of their profession without hard work.

Now Latrell Spreewell....THAT's an ASS.

Even seven years later, I can't think of a single thing good to say about Ron Artest. And I think it's a joke he got the NBA's Sportsmanship Award and changed his name to Metta World Peace. A sick, sick joke.

I for one will never forgive him for potentially costing Reggie Miller his last chance at a championship, or for the state of the franchise since that day.

Does the world really need another celebrity rap artist... Was there ever a NBA player who did a good cross over to rap? (Waits for someone to compliment Shaq rap album. Should I heat up a pot of coffee lol)

Well, for once I'm not gonna step to the plate to defend him. As far as I'm concerned, if he's more worried about his rap album than playing basketball, then we should find a way to help him play basketball for another team.

You just might be in the minority. A sports writer from Indy was on ESPN radio this morning saying that the majority of people he's talked to (including himself & the radio host) still support Artest & feel that his skills on the court far out-weigh his "issues". Have you found this to be the case as well?
