I hate this move in so many ways. Click Here (sports.yahoo.com) The last thing the Knicks need is another head case jacking up bad shots. His shutdown defense days are long gone. I guess he brings some toughness, but the technical fouls are going to fly and the meltdown losses will be spectacular.

I love this move for probably the exact same ways. Of course, if I were actually a FAN of the Knicks, I probably wouldn't be as enamoured. I'll have to see what Kim thinks of it....she loves Ron and still liked the Knicks last I checked, but don't know how she'll find them together.
Considering that the Lakers have joined the ranks of the also-rans, at least having Metta World Artest around was good for entertainment value. Not to mention that he's a beloved figure out here. Laker fans are a lot more upset about losing Artest than Dwight Howard.
Foul calls have been crappy all around in this series. It's great to not try to interrupt the play of the game, but last I heard fouls *were* a part of the game and by not calling things that should be fouls, you are changing the play of the game.
