    Aug 17, 2010, 7:48 PM EST

    No Laker has enjoyed the spoils of being a champion this summer like Ron Artest. Then again, no Laker earned the right to party with a great Game 7 of the finals like Ron Artest. And party Ron Artest has, as he said in an interview with FanHouse. It’s been fun — a little too…

  2. Your other opening night contest: Rockets at Lakers

    Aug 3, 2010, 3:30 PM EST

    Did you really think there was any chance the Lakers would not be an opening night game? What with the rings and the banner and Kobe, you think the NBA wasn’t going to put their other big attraction out there? Then add in the return of Yao Ming, with all of China tuning in, and…

  3. Top 10 Lakers plays of the playoffs

    Aug 2, 2010, 8:00 PM EST

    The Lakers play pretty basketball when they run the offense. Which they do less and less, but there are moments when Pau Gasol is playing where it still comes through. Also, notice how many times Shannon Brown comes up in these. Then picture how much the Lakers would miss his athleticism. Then picture how many…

    Jul 28, 2010, 4:04 PM EST

    One summer double scoop of Ron Artest coming right up. Bless the people at ESPN, who not only came up with the idea of Ron Artest interviewing Ron Artest, but had the technology to put it together. (Thanks to Trey Kerby at Ball Don’t Lie for finidng this.) Because you can never get too much …

    Jun 22, 2010, 9:20 AM EST

    Ron Artest with a cigar and a top hat. No other sentence can motivate you to watch the highlights of the Lakers championship parade more. Oh, yea, there are shots of Kobe, too.

  6. NBA finals Video: Kobe has one more than Shaq, and would like to tell you so

    Jun 18, 2010, 12:20 PM EST

    There’s a surreality to the tone of championship teams. Even after five titles, Kobe still appears stunned that he’s reached the summit again. Phil Jackson, with 11 rings (one for the pinky toe?) still seems like the entire experience is odd. Oddly in the video below, it’s only Pau Gasol who seems nonplussed. And of…

  7. NBA finals: Lakers will parade the streets as champions on Monday

    Jun 18, 2010, 11:18 AM EST

    The Lakers have announced their parade info. It’s time to party with the champions. Again. For the sixteenth time in NBA history. Seventeenth overall. You’d think they’d get tired of it. These parades come as regularly as the St. Patty’s Day one in Boston. But no, of course, nothing beats a title and the Laker…

    After the game, a relaxed Lakers assistant Brian Shaw was talking to reporters about what it is like to coach in an this but intense game like Game 7. “You just want to stick with what you know and what you been preaching all year long. We kept on saying that we’re playing into their…

    Jun 18, 2010, 2:55 AM EST

    In his uniform, with confetti raining down upon him in his first moments as an NBA championship, Ron Artest thanked his therapist.  Of course he did.  The man known as ‘Crazy Pills’ became something more in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, knocking down clutch shot after clutch shot, playing within himself, and finally obtaining…

  10. NBA finals Lakers Celtics Game 7: Kobe Bryant and a legacy at war

    Jun 18, 2010, 12:36 AM EST

    That’s one for the thumb.  Kobe Bryant won his fifth title in 2009-2010, nesting a clutch jumper and a series of icing free throws. The storybook ending was written, with Bryant further cementing his legacy as one of the truly great players in NBA history. His veteran leadership and indomitable will to win is second to…
