Ron Artest asks fans via Twitter to describe Matt Barnes' toughness

For those wondering how the Lakers feel about acquiring Matt Barnes, well, you can always count on Ron Artest to give his opinion. From one tough guy to the other, Artest asked fans via Twitter to submit comments to him describing what makes Barnes so tough. Artest would know, seeing how the pesky Barnes tried to intimidate Kobe Bryant last season and even pretended to inbound the ball toward his face.

Among the fan feedback:

"Matt is tougher than nails Tougher than a penguin on steroids Tougher than richard Simmons trying to take off his spandex" -- RONARTESTCOM

“@AR_Fresh16: @RONARTESTCOM @Matt_Barnes22 is tougher than Chuck Norris and that's a tough dude lol”

"“@NickJunior: @RONARTESTCOM Matt Barnes is tough like elephant taint”

“@CELTICSin2011: @RONARTESTCOM matt barnes is so tough that he doesnt cry so his tears get donated to kobe cause he needs more tears”

“@IvanRott: @RONARTESTCOM Matt Barnes is tougher than Run-D.M.C.'s Tougher Than Leather.”

“@folllowthesun: @RONARTESTCOM tougher than trying to beat the Lakers?”

“@SBekovic: @RONARTESTCOM Matt Barnes is tougher that (sp) Kimbo Slice's beard.”

“@moongrim: @RONARTESTCOM Barnes is so tough I saw him dunk with no hands”

“@WBandoy: @RonArtestCOM Yo, @Matt_Barnes22 is tougher than doing Chinese calculus in your head!”

“@FabioLLanes: @RONARTESTCOM matt barnes is tougher than sodoku”

“@ziadaljamaan: @RONARTESTCOM matt barnes so tough he doesn't sleep he just waits”

Barnes is so tough that RON artest approves lol

Nice interview. Riley was trying hard to get him, but KB was on it too. Barnes said KB texted him "anyone who's crazy enough to mess with me is crazy enough to play with me! LOL".

I always hated this guy when we went up against him, but it's nice to have him on our side. He said it was no brainer. He's a SoCal guy

@ winton - yes he is a SOCAL guy because he is from here, a UCLA native and a UCLA spelling champ lol shows you his skills already ahahaha

With all the new faces on the roster next season, I think it's important that we as fans have "patients" with the team during the regular season :) Posted by: EJK | July 23, 2010 at 10:59 AM

OH SWEET JESUS!! LMAO!! PEOPLE, PEOPLE PEOPLE, Please leave Matt alone. He was just a lil over enthusiastic. Me, myself I'm willing to have...Patients with him. hahahhahah OH THE HUMANITY!!!

This was my personal favorite, directly from Ron Ron himself...

"Matt has the heart off a lion on steroids wit extra chest hairs and three testicles screaming " Adrian "!!!!!!"

LAL818,


"a UCLA spelling champ"


Yeah, I found that part to be somewhat disturbing. I sure wouldn't have been able to pass all my courses at UCLA without adequately accurate spelling. What gives?


I'm just going to tell myself that he was so incredibly excited in the moment that he lost track of the details.

Matt Barnes is so tough he beat up the 3rd grader who almost beat him in the spelling bee.... ahaha lol

*________________________________________________*
THE LAST HURRAH!! 72 GAMES FOR PHIL - BANDWAGON
*________________________________________________*
(01) HOBBBITMAGE –OWNER - Let's get this party started. I am predicting the Lakers will win 72 gameS
(02) PURPLE AND GOLD REIGN – DRIVER - Phil Jackson mentioned his desire to make his final NBA campaign a "grand one." I know he would never publicly admit to it, but with the improvements to the roster, it wouldn't surprise me IF one of the goals he sets out for the team is to try to break the Bull's 72-10 record...or, at least go for 70 wins. We shall see.
(03) MAMBA24 – RIDING SHOTGUN - This ISH is going to be so much fun this season. I tell you what this means. This means Phil is going after every damn record there is in his final season. 33 in a row, 16 - 0 Playoffs, 72 games regular season
(04) LAL818 - SECURITY - I'm riding on the roof, or open the sunroof lol i need to breath this 72 games.... ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh smells like victory
(05)NEMAIA FALETOGO - I liken PJ's last stand to what Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday said in the movie Tombstone, "the final ride of Wyatt Earp and his immortals." PJ, his callous gun for hire in Kobe Bryant will lead this group and destroy any man wearing a red sash(uniform), the Miami Heat(the Cowboys in the movie)!!!
(06) HUMANOMALY - This is Phil's last year, the rookies may not even get onto the floor. Phil wants to go out with a BANG!!!! He wants to go out dominating. So look for less of those 20 point leads Phil wants to make a statement. Now he has the team, as long as they stay healthy, the core of the team knows the system, the new players are all traveled veterans, not counting the rookies, who are just going to be scrimmage players. I think this will be a 67 win season, at least.

Matt Barnes said "Kobe and I were texting each other like we were boyfriend and girlfriend for the past two weeks".

Uh oh....looks like Artest will have some competition in his fight for Kobe's affections next year. Artest versus Barnes during practice should be quite interesting. This might turn out to be some kind of bizarre love triangle (no pun intended).

Hey guys,

Does anyone here know where David Thorpe ranks Ebanks and Caracter in his rookie rankings after summer league play? It's an Insider article on ESPN.com. If somebody has the link or the article could you please post it? I just want to see where our rookies ranked and what was said about them. Someone tweeted that Thorpe ranked Damion Jones #2 and Derrick Favors #11 on his list. Thanks.

@ MAMBA24 - my dear friend, going back to this "thugs" idea...we cant change, its in our blood, were from LA!

let me refresh where we come from

home of the gangbangers and the toughest mo fos alive

were the home of the gangbangin 101 lol
South Central LA, WATSS, COMPTON, INGLEWOOD, need more?

that goes to show you, no matter how nice we might be, were still thugs at heart, i mean come on... did you forget who 2pac was? lmaooooooooooooo

we breath thugs in LA lmao and everyone else follows ahahah

Matt Barnes is so tough he doesn't HAVE "Patients", he MAKES "Patients"


@ jon k - Matt Barnes is so tough that he doesn't have tattoos, those are just what happens when he sweats.

ahahah wow jon this was a great one... im gonna do one for his tattoos tooo LMAO good job sir...

@ Nemaia Faletogo - well on NBA.com the last rookie ladder was...

1.demarcus cousins
2. john wall
3. character
4..
5...
6...
7 EBANKS
8
9

thats about all i know because all the other reporters dont even mention Caracter or EBANks on the top 10 so i dunno wtf they are reporting but caracter was #3 on the nba.com rookie final list...

MAMBA24,


"Are we turning into the
Los "ANGLES" Thuggers!"


No, we are cold like assassins. Thugs want you to know their thugs. We just want to break their spines and chuckle quietly.


What do we play for? RINGS!!!


Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.


GO LAKERS!!!

Cut and paste after adding your name below the vehicle you want...or just post me a message to add you...All suggestions for new vehicles will be accepted...This will be one special season...

LET'S MAKE THIS THE BIGGEST AND THE MOTHER OF ALL BANDWAGONS!!!

hey MM do you think we can have a chat today?

i mean lets discuss our new players....

You know what I love about this new team?

We have two excellent defenders (Bryant, Artest), two very good defenders (Barnes, Odom), three good defenders (Ratliff, Gasol, Bynum), 3 average to above average defenders (Blake, Sasha, Ebanks) and only two below average defenders (Fisher and Caracter), and even those two guys aren't atrocious.

This team is going to be a biotch to try and score against.

Also, there's this...

Blake > Farmar
Ebanks > Ammo
Caracter > Powell
Ratliff > Mbenga (slightly)
Barnes > Shannon

Wow. This team is definitely better than last year's version. Mitch deserves a vacation.

@LONGTIMELAKERLOVER, "anyone who's crazy enough to mess with me is crazy enough to play with me! LOL". You notice how "Great Minds" think alike? LMAO!!!

Posted by: MAMBA24 | July 23, 2010 at 11:25 A

That's no news! That's been going on for a loooooooong time!!!
************************************************************

Jon K -

Not to split hairs, but I said the Miami thing - not LTLF

"LongTimeLakersFan,


"Glad we stole SOMEONE away from Miami."


We stole Fisher and Barnes."

Just sayin'

GO LAKERS!!!!!


"The weakness, though, is a glaring one: he can't cover the pick-and-roll. To attack Orlando's defense with Barnes in the game, one needed only to isolate Barnes on the top wing scorer, and then set a ball screen for him. What hurts him the most is his tendency to run straight into the darn thing instead of fighting over it or going underneath it: in defending 105 pick-and-roll situations this season in which an offensive player actually used the pick (instead of dribbling away from it or splitting it), Barnes ran into the pick 53 times, which opposing players exploited for 1.057 points per possession. The list of 81 players who defended the pick-and-roll better than Barnes this season (minimum 120 possessions) includes Steve Nash, Earl Boykins, Mike Bibby, and Gilbert Arenas. Gulp."

http://tinyurl.com/35of6jg

At least he is a bench guy...

Nemaia -

He had Caracter at #5 and Ebanks at #17.

@ LEWSTERS - put me down on all of those!!! my name should be under every single SUBURBAN!!!

Nem,

That article requires an insider so I cannot post the link I will post about the rookies though:

5. Derrick Caracter, Lakers
Summer-league stats: 15.4 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 1.4 bpg

Here was my checklist when watching DC this week: Did he rebound ferociously? Did he compete hard on defense? Could he finish shots around the rim? Did his body look ready? Check, check, check and check. The Lakers have to be thrilled they found an NBA player so late in the draft. Now they have to keep him moving in the right direction.


17. Devin Ebanks, Lakers
Summer-league stats: 15.0 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.4 apg

Ebanks came into the week with something to prove, and he used that edge to separate himself from many of the other second-rounders. I liked how he slashed hard to the rim, but I was more impressed with his perimeter game, which showed signs of progress and included some long-range buckets. It's fair to say he could be a poor man's Trevor Ariza.

Mamba! Put me on that Phil list, baby.

*Our team defense should be tremendous this year.

*I like Barnes as a Laker. It'll be interesting to see how he carves himself a role out on this team. If anything he gives us major depth at the 3 spot. Plus, he's another guy we can throw at Lebron and Carmelo.

*I really like the fact that we got Theo Ratlif to ease the pressure off of The Beast and Pau. Ratliff can give us 15-20 of good D. Now we're not just a 3 man frontcourt, that's huge. Also, Pau won't be needed to play center unless we want to go small, that's huge. The Celtics picked up Jermaine O'neal, Ratliff matches up real nicely with him.

*I can't wait for the season to start again. For now, the appetizer is the FIBA worlds.

Go Lakers!

Matt Barnes is tougher than a pitbull on ecstacy...

Phil is:

Rollin' down, Imperial Highway
Jeannie Buss at his side,
Santa Ana winds are blowin' hot from the North
He was born to ride..

Jon K,

you wrote: No, we are cold like assassins. Thugs want you to know their thugs. We just want to break their spines and chuckle quietly.

my response: Wait for it ...... OUT-FREAKIN-STANDING!!!!!

@PG&R "However, as a Lakers Fan, I'm sure you understand that the Letter "C" is often associated with THAT ugly-green team from you-know-where! Haha."

That's Why I Always Refer to them as the "KELTICS". The More Accurate, Guttural Phonetic Descriptor! LOL
_______________________________________________________

GO LAKERS!!!!!! ONE, TWO, THREE-PEAT SQUARED!!!!!!

I think Matt Barnes was so excited to become a Laker, he immediately contacted Ron Ron's psychiatrists and became her new "Patient" so she could help him stay focused.

LEWSTERS,
Would you add me to all the suburbans except the 73-9 record season. Im not hopping on that one yet unless it promises our players to be well rested, healthy and ready to win a championship. We dont play to break the all time win record. We play to win RINGS!!!

As Marc B (With a 'C'), I hereby make a Blog Motion to Here and Forever After Refer to THAT ugly-green team (as PG&R so aptly described them) as the "KELTICS"!

Any seconds?
_______________________________________________________

GO LAKERS!!!!!! ONE, TWO, THREE-PEAT SQUARED!!!!!!

Lets go Niley, I reppin for the Lakers the all time greatest. Cant nobody fade us.
I do it for the jersey that be hangin from the Staples. Jabbar, West, Magic, Worthy, Chamberlain and Baylor. Fisher, Pau and Bynum got championship rings with diamonds. While the homies Ron Artest to run the defensive assignments
Bench mobbin Odom, the Black Mamba Kobe. We parade on Figueroa with the championship trophy.

WOOOOOOOOT!

LETS ROLL LAKER NATION! LET'S ROLL! THIS IS IT!

Nemaia....here's that David Thorpe article....

http://tinyurl.com/342gv8z

Matt Barnes, welcome to the Championship Lakers!

While of course we've always rooted against you, we've also become more and more impressed with your play over the years, especially the way you can disrupt a player, get under their skin.

Matt, we are going to enjoy watching you beat down on the East team in the next Finals. Your play against Pierce will be valuable!

... We're so stacked for next year its not even funny.
our bench by itself is better than half of the league !!!

check out Barne's first interview that was on 540 a.m last night,
HES PUMPED !!!
