Readers share their photo captions of Ron Artest meeting former President Bill Clinton
If fans of the L.A. Times Lakers blog had to guess, Ron Artest hit on many topics when he (along with Devin Ebanks and Sen. Harry Reid) met with former President Bill Clinton after Artest received the key to Las Vegas on Tuesday for his work involving mental health issues. The readers talked world events, politics and hoops, wedged with a whole lot of jokes about Monica Lewinsky. Of course.
Below is a sampling of how you think their conversation went down.
