When I go to the club, I get John Laroquette

Still saying fuck the second round, because the Spurs and Mavs are winning, the Miami/Wiz series is lifeless, and I can't watch Pistons-Pacers without wishing Ron was here. Stern, you won't let our boy back in for the playoffs?...can you imagine the revenue and the attention...do you think we'd be hearing about Tino Martinez every day on Sportscenter?...and you call yourself an exploitative conniving Jew? A quick anecdote about Artest that is evidently more well-known than I thought it was, but still worth posting:

"One off-season, while still playing for the Chicago Bulls, Ron Artest
applied for a job at Circuit City. On the job application he wrote down "NBA player" as his last job and used Bulls president Jerry Krause's name as a reference. And he did it all just so he could get the employee discount on home electronics."

I'd heard it was because he was low on funds after having spent his rookie season showing excessive generosity towards his entire QB tower. which i think adds even further to the paul bunyan-esque legend surrounding him.

actually, he could have wanted the discount so he could continue to lace up the entire projects something lovely.

good to hear someone agrees with me that last night's games were aberrations. dallas barely beat phoenix, and that was with finley having a near flawless shooting night and joey johnson missing the second half.

hard to say that jj is anything more but the fourth important sun, but stil... .

and pistons, come on guys.

Seriously, Artest is a fucking folk hero. I love him, he's realer than Tupac to me. It's a shame Ben Wallace didn't get a harsher penalty after he started that shit. You know Artest could take him, I think Ron could beat the hell out of him. I think Ben is probably the second baddest dude in the league too. It's between him and K-Mart. What do you think?

ben has clearly been devoting some of his energies to learning how to score lately, whereas k-mart pretty much did nothing all season but mug and project attitude. for that reason, i give the edge to k-mart.

really, i think artest is going to be beyond huge when he comes back. off the court and on.

Do you think Artest trains like those guys in the Juicy video? Doing pullups on crosswalk signals. Like a Queensbridge version of Stallone in Rocky 4.

I'm with you man next year he should be ferocious. He always plays like he has something to prove and now he actually will. I just hope David Stern didn't take him to Randall Patrick McMurphy's psychologist.
