    The Pistons were still shaking their heads at what happened Thursday night as they were on their bus inside the loading-dock area of Conseco Fieldhouse.

    It was between 11:30 and midnight and the Pistons' bus was about to leave the arena for the airport.

    Suddenly, a dark Escalade roared into the loading dock, nearly hitting several people.

    Out jumped Ron Artest, the Pacers forward who got a seasonlong suspension for his part in the Nov. 19 brawl.

    According to Pistons players on the bus, Artest was wearing an old (and short) pair of shorts. He had no shoes on and, upon getting out of the vehicle, he tore off his T-shirt.

    Given the history between Artest and the Pistons, the team's security officials were on high alert. But Artest made no motion toward the bus. He simply walked, bare-chested and bare-footed, into the building, presumably for a midnight workout.

    "There's something going on there," Ben Wallace said, not wanting to comment further.


You can't make this stuff up, folks.

...Uh, yeah. Given the fact that he's got a well-documented history of doing crazy-ass shit, maybe he would have been better advised, I don't know, not to do that?

We need to divest ourselves of him pronto. I think we traded the wrong small forward... we should have traded Artest and kept Harrington. Or traded Artest and kept our center, Brad Miller.

For an above-average center, that's not a bad price, especially considering what Eric Dampier (who is average at best) makes. Luke Jackson CAN be that shooter if he's healthy, especially if he's open from the defense clogging Hughes and LeBron.
