  1. Ron Artest tells the story of how he was almost a Clipper

    Jun 14, 2011, 3:28 PM EDT

    Ron Artest

    Ron Artest with the Clippers? Instead of the Kings? Monday night Artest went on a little twitter binge looking back over the course of his career and it included the story where he was almost traded to the Clippers. Here are all the posts Did ya know when I got traded to sac (Sacramento) that…

  2. Video: Jimmy Kimmel pranks Ron Artest

    Jun 10, 2011, 6:21 PM EDT

    Ron Artest Parade

    Jimmy Kimmel has been a consistent source of NBA-related entertainment throughout the playoffs. Ron Artest is a consistent source of entertainment all the time. When Artest guested on Kimmel’s show, you knew something good was going to happen. Kimmel took advantage of Artest’s well-documented humanitarian streak and had him film a PSA for a fake…

  3. Ron Artest taking mental health push to new reality show

    Jun 6, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    If we just told you Ron Artest was going to have a reality show, you’d just nod. He’s the kind of offbeat personality that works for those shows. Except, this isn’t “Khloe & Lamar Part II,” Artest’s new reality show that is in the works is not about him at all, according to TMZ.com. Artest…

  4. Ron Artest breaks up drunken fight on Hollywood street

    Jun 1, 2011, 12:34 PM EDT

    Ron Artest

    Ron Artest is really trying to live up to that citizenship award he got. Artest was leaving a Hollywood club last weekend when he came upon a man and a woman about to get into a fight, according to TMZ.com. So Artest stepped in and broke it up. Because 6’7” 265 pound guys with minimal…

  5. The Ron Artest Comedy Tour… that’s not a joke.

    May 23, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT

    Ron Artest Parade

    Is there anything as funny as Ron Artest? You had better laugh or he is coming into the crowd. No, I’m serious. Well, he’s serious about being funny. Apparently. Artest is getting into the comedy business, according to our man Arash Markazi ESPNLosAngeles. If there is a lockout, however, Artest is working on a second…

  6. Lakers to start Odom, Gasol, Bynum in one long front line

    May 6, 2011, 3:26 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    All season, the only real chance that Lakers fans got to see what Lamar Odom, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum looked like playing at the same time was on NBA 2K11. Because Phil Jackson almost never ran that lineup out there — 2:30 for the entire season. Total. But with the season on the line…

  7. Lakers may start Brown, have Barnes come off bench

    May 6, 2011, 11:42 AM EDT

    Image (1) Brown_dunk-thumb-250x166-11742.jpg for post 1998

    Phil Jackson needs to find a spark, because his team has lacked one for two games now. So you can throw the conventional wisdom that Matt Barnes will step in and start for the suspended Ron Artest out the window — Shannon Brown may be getting the start, Kevin Ding reports at the Orange County…

  8. It’s official, Lakers Ron Artest suspended for Game 3

    May 5, 2011, 4:08 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    As was expected, the NBA has suspended Lakers forward Ron Artest for Game 3 of the Lakers series against Dallas. The reason was Artest smacked J.J. Barea across the face with his forearm near the end of the Lakers Game 2 loss. It was deserved. Watch the video at this link if you haven’t seen…

  9. Ron Artest will get suspended for clothesline on Barea

    May 5, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    I have not gone back and officially checked the NBA rulebook today, but I’m fairly convinced that clotheslining an opponent is illegal. Right up there with throwing an elbow while jumping off the top turnbuckle and hitting him over the head with a metal  folding chair. All fine moves when the WWE referee is distracted, but…

  10. Phil Jackson: “Ya, we’re worried now”

    May 4, 2011, 9:57 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    Kobe Bryant said after the Lakers dropped Game 1, they should be worried. The Lakers are realizing that these Mavericks are not the old Mavericks. They are not soft inside (hello Tyson Chandler) and they are veterans. Before Game 2 Phil Jackson echoed Kobe’s thoughts. “Ya, we’re worried now,” Jackson said. “This is a good…

  11. NBA Playoffs: It’s not all about the Lakers… but it’s close

    May 4, 2011, 3:43 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    I don’t want to write that Game 2 is really about the Lakers — how they adjust, what effort they bring, whether they stick with their game plan. Because that is dismissive of a very good Mavericks team. This version of Dallas is different — past Mavs teams would have lost Game 1, not taken…

  12. Ron Artest wins NBA citizenship award. Deservedly so. Seriously.

    Apr 26, 2011, 2:35 PM EDT

    Image (1) rartest_postgame-thumb-250x140-17190.jpg for post 6331

    The amazing part is of this is not that Ron Artest won the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award presented annually by the Professional Basketball Writers Association. The amazing part is he deserved it. Ron Artest — he of the halftime Hennessy drinks, the dog abuse, the Malice at the Palace — has latched on to…

  13. Irony alert: Player calls Garnett “coward” in anonymous column

    Apr 22, 2011, 12:10 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    I love the premise of this article — there is not enough trash talk in the NBA. It’s part of ESPN’s “Player X” series where some athletes in different sports get to spout off anonymously on whatever topic they want. And this time around an NBA player — clearly a veteran — complains about the…

  14. NBA Playoffs: The Hornets stun the Lakers

    Apr 17, 2011, 8:02 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    You could hear a pin drop in the Staples Center. The Lakers were supposed to steamroll the short-handed New Orleans Hornets in the first round on their way to a potential three-peat, but the Hornets stunned the NBA world and took game one in the Staples Center. And unlike the Grizzlies’ win, the Hornets’ win…

  15. Bang the drum slowly: Tonight may be last game in Sacramento

    Apr 13, 2011, 3:47 PM EDT

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    Ron Artest reacted like a lot of people — he didn’t really want to believe it could happen. When the former Kings star was asked about he and the Lakers heading up to Sacramento for what may well be the final game ever for the Kings in Sacramento, Artest kept saying the move was not…

  16. Kendrick Perkins brings big, bad screens to Thunder offense

    Apr 11, 2011, 12:12 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Phoenix Suns

    Ron Artest hounds Kevin Durant like few defenders in the league. Durant’s preferred catch-and-shoot is often taken away and Durant has to put the ball on the floor more (which he did well getting into the lane Sunday in the Thunder’s win). But Durant got some better looks Sunday because of the offensive contributions of…

  17. Lakers say stop calling Pau Gasol soft

    Apr 6, 2011, 1:15 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Them’s fightin’ words to the Lakers. Well, at least verbal fighting. A couple people have taken swings at Pau Gasol and used the soft word recently, as ESPNLosAngeles.com reports, starting with the Knicks Amar’e Stoudemire. “He’s still soft,” Stoudemire said with a grin and a shrug. “But, he’s a good player, you know what I…

  18. Dwight Howard, Ron Artest named finalists for humanitarian award

    Mar 31, 2011, 7:25 PM EDT

    Ron Artest Parade

    Ron Artest, who once jumped into the stands and got suspended for a full season, and Dwight Howard, who currently leads the league in technical fouls, are both finalists for the Walter J. Kennedy Citizenship award. The award is given each year to an NBA figure who shows “outstanding service and dedication to the community.”…

    Los Angeles Lakers Victory Parade

    Behind the scenes at a Ron Artest video shoot… complete with Oompa-Loompas. Trying to make sense of the Heat’s role players and fit. (Great work by our own John Krolik.) Jerry West agrees with Mike D’Antoni — Knicks fans need to calm down. Jermaine O’Neal could return to the Celtics next week. (Shaq remains day-to-day,…

  20. Having a Nitecap with Ron Artest by a Miami pool

    Mar 21, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    NBC Miami has one of those shows you can only do at NBC Miami — Nitecap with Peter Bailey. Where a celebrity rolls up to a Miami pool after hours and just hangs with the host talking whatever for a few minutes, then hits the club. Although, this is Ron Artest, so we’re sure he…

  21. Artest has ideas on exciting “Grey Poupon, caviar” Lakers fans

    Mar 17, 2011, 10:52 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Victory Parade

    We told you that the Lakers are the worst fans in the NBA. Well, that’s what GQ said, actually. We’re not so sure. We don’t remember the Lakers needing to do a “Fan Up” campaign like in Miami. Or having the general level of disinterest seen in Atlanta. Or… well, you get the idea. Ron…

  22. Time to see if the Lakers have figured out the Spurs puzzle

    Mar 6, 2011, 12:08 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan,  Kobe Bryant

    If it is not Lakers vs. Spurs in a May best-of-seven series to be the Western Conference champion, it will be a little disappointing. Sorry Mr. Cuban, Mr. Durant. It’s not personal, we do like you. You’re teams are entertaining and quite good. But Lakers/Spurs would match the two teams in the West best built…

  23. George Lopez gives Ron Artest tricked out Lakers car

    Mar 3, 2011, 4:40 PM EDT

    Artest_Lakers

    Ron Artest and George Lopez are tight because… well, it’s Los Angeles, those kind of things happen. Lopez is on Artest’s new single “Go Loco” and he’s dropped by the show a couple of times. They are both unreasonably popular considering what they contribute to their business. Lopez has seats you and I can’t afford…

  24. Phil Jackson: Artest runs the offense better than Kobe

    Mar 2, 2011, 12:58 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Now it is time once again for one of Phil Jackson’s favorite mind games: subtle — and not so subtle – messages to players through the media. What would we do all day if it weren’t for them? Today it is Kobe’s turn to be sent a message. Which is rare because Kobe ignore such…

  25. Lakers GM Kupchak calls trade “unlikely”

    Feb 18, 2011, 12:39 AM EDT

    Mitch Kupchak

    They just lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s inconcievable. So you’d have it right if you thought Lakers fans were talking about trades today. And by talking about we mean obsessing over and demanding. Not going to happen. Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak said as much at the unveiling of the Jerry West statue outside of…
