“My defense is so unbelievable, I don’t really care about offense right now.”
–Ron Artest, in anticipation of Game 6 between the Lakers and Thunder in OKC (via The OC Register). Ron’s certainly not wrong, as he’s held Kevin Durant to sub-40% shooting in three of the five games thus far and hounded him into 4.2 turnovers per game. That said, is this really the smartest thing to say before a pretty crucial game against Durant and the Thunder in their house? Probably not, but it may be the most Ron Artest thing to say in such a situation, which is less helpful to the Lakers but more entertaining for the rest of us.
