Ron Artest is a fool.
So apparently Ron Artest/Metta World Peace thinks he’s part of the greatest team ever assembled in NBA history. He says the Lakers can go 73-9. That would mean they would own the best record in NBA history, overtaking first place from the 1995-96 Bulls that only lost 10 games.
Artest believes that his team of aging superstars can do it. Dwight Howard is an offensive liability and we have Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash declining in their skills. Plus, does he really believe Mike Brown can lead them to this?
The Bulls had the greatest player of all time, one of the toughest defenders ever, a crazy rebounder down low and a Hall of Fame head coach. I don’t think so Artest. You just thinking crazy thoughts again.
I was out of the house most of the day on Sunday and I didn’t get a chance to catch this until late at night while watching SportsCenter. I had heard that Metta World Peace had elbowed somebody but I wasn’t sure exactly about the details. Now after watching the video, I’m disgusted.
For this instance, World Peace claimed that he was celebrating and he accidentally elbowed James Harden in the head. Yet if it was unintentional, I wonder why he didn’t look back after he made contact.
I can believe he was celebrating but a part of Ron Artest came back. He was selfish with his celebration and violent with the elbow. And he had no concern immediately hitting Harden until he was about to get attacked by Serge Ibaka before the officials broke it up.
This is the kind of stuff that Ron Artest would do. He said the right things afterward but I still feel that even though he changed his name, he’s still the unstable, volatile player. Last night, we saw Ron Artest.
