    So if I'm reading Ron right, his anger management difficulties are just part of his culture, and he will not change that.

    Great, Ron. Thanks for perpetuating a stereotype that being a thug is acceptable behavior in the black community. It's not true, but apparently it works for you.

    “If you go back to the brawl, that’s a culture issue right there. Somebody was disrespecting me, so he’s got to understand where I’m coming from. People that know me know that Ron Artest never changed.”

    So why does anybody want this fucking moron on their team?

    "Good to know, Ron. With that in mind, you're hereby suspended indefinitely, since by your own admission -- more accurately, proclamation -- your previous season-long suspension was unsuccessful in impacting you with the importance of controlling your behavior."

    --David Stern

    Good question. Just for shits and giggles, the aggregate W-L record in NBA games in which Ron Artest has actually played is about 200-335.

    Screw-loose nut cases do not help teams win. At best, they can be tolerated.

    "Ron Artest" could be a Jeopardy category one day. He's one of the rare trainwrecks that brings me spectacular joy.

    What, pray tell, would Ron Artest be doing on this great planet of ours, if he couldn't play basketball?

    He always looked a little like Webster to me.

    Scarier consideration: There's a significantly large segment of the population that agrees with him.

    He'd either be dead or have been in jail 15 years ago.
