Ron Artest insistent on auctioning off his championship ring

As the Lakers tried on their 2009 championship rings, Ron Artest remained in the locker room, insistent that he didn't deserve to witness the ceremony. As the Lakers were honored by President Obama for their championship run, Artest remained in his hotel room, insistent that he felt sick. And as the Lakers get ready for the season opener Oct. 26 against the Houston Rockets, Artest says he's insistent on auctioning off his championship ring to help charitable efforts involving mental health issues.

"I'll look at it and put it back in the box," Artest said.

He has been lauded for his plan, enough to earn the keys to the city in Las Vegas, meet former President Clinton and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and appear at Eastmont Intermediate School in Montebello to speak on mental health issues. But Artest says plenty of people have reached out to him, pleading that he doesn't part with the ring. After all, he had stayed out of last season's activities out of respect for the rest of the team and for the motivation that he'd be able to partake in the celebration someday. The concern has extended to his wife as well.

But as indicated in a wide-ranging interview after Thursday's practice, he won't budge. He said he plans to give his wife a duplicate ring, and revealed he had his ring fit for a size 11 instead of his own size 14, so it would be easier for the average fan to fit the ring on his or her finger.

"You look at the impact I made already with the whole cause, I think you'd do the same thing," Artest said. "I didn't think it was going to be like that. I didn't plan on it being such a major response. I had no idea. But even had I known that, I would still do it and give other things away. It was for short-term impact that hopefully will lead to long-term impact. Now it's getting out of control, but in a good way."

Artest said his brush with community efforts has spurred him to want to do more, particularly after Clinton expressed admiration for the player's redemption story, with the 2010 NBA championship and his charitable efforts now defining him more than the infamous "Malice at the Palace." And his brush with championship success has spurred him do away with other distractions.

He had planned to shoot a reality TV show this past summer, titled "They Call Me Crazy," in conjunction with E1 Entertainment and Tijuana Entertainment, with his race-car incident serving as part of the pilot. But he said he quickly scrapped the plan, fearing that it would distract him from the goal of a Lakers repeat championship.

"I'm not shooting a reality show. This season is too important," he said. "I don't know if I'll ever be able to shoot one. Next summer, I'll be training really hard. I wasn't going to shoot during the season. I was trying to get it done, but the people we were working with were moving really, really slow. So we couldn't get the show done."

There are still a few haters out there, who perhaps can be saved. I'm glad for the sake of their souls that the Lakers keep winning championships, they need the lessons in humility that it provides. You must confess and repent your sins of celebrating the meaningless accomplishments of lesser teams before you can really be brought up to the light of Laker fandom. @ PHRED

Laker Land: where all that is possible and even a lot of what is impossible happens on a daily basis.
History repeats to the same patterns, but evolving from them to a more perfected reality, round after round. So we are the same: just better than last time. And we are getting better with every step more we take within the future. @ : ZAIRA AMATERASU
*________________________________________________________________________*
To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping” basketball is a journey, teams learn about their weaknesses and strengths as they play along all 82 games. so let's enjoy this journey with our team. onto the next win :) @ J24 aka (LADYJEM24)

Kobe can win THROUGH his team mates. He can win WITH his team mates. He can win DEFERRING
to his team mates. He can win IN SPITE OF his team mates. He can win INSTEAD of his team mates.
He can even win BY HIMSELF (just ask Dallas & Toronto). Champions are forged in the 4th QUARTER. Franchises are defined in the 4th QUARTER. Dynasties are cemented in the 4th QUARTER. Sit back & watch PJ, Kobe & Fish orchestrate this symphony we call Lakers basketball to another parade down

Controversy? You are the Freakin Chaplain! You have but to ask and the Nation obeys! Sure there is and I shall get right on it immediately. Going dark for the next hour I guess.

I appreciate Ron's attitude.

That is, assuming it's okay with his psychologist. Depriving oneself on a reward can sometimes have ill effects - but I think he's doing this solely for the purpose of maintaining his edge, and I like that.

On another note, I think I'm going to see someone to deal with a few issues of my own.... and will do so with the nudging of Mr. Ron Ron. If it's good enough for him, then it's good enough for me.

\o/ @ Mamba! In the words of Al Green: SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!

I think Ron Ron will be a leading candidate in the DPOY discussion. He's focused, he's lighter, he's stronger... and he is a LAKER.

The best thing about Ron's upcoming season? The pressure is off. He came to L.A. and won a championship, and he played a huge role in doing so. This season it's all about playing basketball, which is what Ron Ron does best.

Go Lake Show!

And the best thing about this post is it is...OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!!!!

I recall our resident certifiably insane starting small forward taking a much more reserved, deferential, humble approach before the 82 game practice season started last year. Frankly, enough is enough and he should just go back to simple sound bites using standard cliches used by most veterans of his caliber rather than motivating the the rest of the league with his "funny" comments. Yes, he's entertaining, but the kind of entertainment I want from him as a serious fan is the kind we got from him in Game 7 .... and that is ALL! Ron-Ron, put a lock on it!

Thanks, Mamba24. Your work -- as always -- is pure poetry, the life and soul of the blog.

Go Lake Show!

Hello Lakersblog famz...hope everyone's well...

I'm loving Ron more and more...maybe I should change my moniker to iheartronron, lol!!!

btw, I had a blast watching the lakers at the O2 Arena in London - can you believe it's my first time seeing the Lakers live, in flesh...we ended up sitting just behind them and I was able to take pictures and videos...too bad I didn't get any pictures taken with them...security was too strict...oh well! maybe I'll get lucky the next time I watch...

manong Adrian - you can get my email address from MM so you can add me on facebook...I will post the vids and photos on facebook this weekend...

LakeTom - are the Bay Area peeps still meeting? let me know, kei!

@IHEARTHKB24… “LakeTom - are the Bay Area peeps still meeting? let me know, kei!”
We should definitely get together for a few games during the season. Any suggestions as to when and where we should hold our first get together? Chime in, Bay Area Lakers Bloggers…

Mamba24 24- You're still the "GOD FATHER" of this blog, hands down, outstanding Roll Call. I still think RON RON not well, but entertaining.

Good day ladies and gents, been laying low in basement charging the old batteries for the 3-peat. I’ve some concerns with the new rule changes giving the official greater control on manipulating the outcome of games. If you though Crawford and Salvatore had it bad for the Lakers before, this _ISH about to get a lot worst. The crews in South Beach are a shoe inn for the finals with the official’s protection guided by Dart Stern. We know Vegas has LeQueen and his girls favorite to win the championship this year, Vegas don’t always loose.
The Players Union seeking to file a lawsuit, they’ll loose. Can’t match the owner’s money in legal cost, and a lockout that’s 100% going to happen. What happened to Tim Duncan by Joey Crawford a few years back, well let’s say grab our @sses we’re about to get the shaft.

“The Greatest Team and the Greatest Owner Ever”

Thriller is so fricken awesome.
-
What do we play for? RINGS!!!
-
Lakers Today... Lakers Tomorrow... Lakers Forever.
-
GO LAKERS!!!

From Hoopsworld:

Michael Jordan helped the Chicago Bulls win six championships.

But Jordan told USA Today his success offensively may have been greater under today’s NBA rules.

“It’s less physical and the rules have changed, obviously,” said Jordan, who was promoting NBA 2K11 video game. “Based on these rules, if I had to play with my style of play, I’m pretty sure I would have fouled out or I would have been at the free throw line pretty often and I could have scored 100 points.”

=====

The arrogance continues to worsen the older he gets. This is pure Mamba envy. More physical my ass. Is he saying, for example, that the Greg Ostertag-Karl Malone-Bryon Russell-Jeff Horncek-John Stockton starting 5 of the 1997 Jazz was more physical than the famed Kendrick Perkins-Kevin Garnett-Paul Pierce-Ray Allen-Rajon Rondo starting 5 (who the Lakers still have not beaten)? Give me a break. There's more to being "physical" than hand checking. He's full of crap and he knows it. It has done nothing but get MORE physical since he left the game.

Did anybody else see Ron on Mo'Nique last night wearing just boxers? I hope it was boxers and t-shirt off course. I am sure he's crazy, mad funny but crazy. The wierd thing he will call Kobe out but starts to defend him as soon as anybody says anything slightly negative about Kobe (he loves Kobe you can see it). He spoke about the need to talk about your problems to somebody/anybody and it made sense who knew, the best advice i've heard all year was from a Ron Artest. He should be a Laker for the rest of his life, he looks like someone who has finally found where he belongs.

@ LakerTom - they will play the Warriors on Jan 12 at Oracle that should be the best time to meet or we could meet before then???

@2Phatt, Thank you and WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN!!! It's almost the regular season you need this preseason blogging to get in shape for the regular season. Yes, yes even Blog Superstars like 2Phatt needs practice, just ask this guy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0sPZyVY5No

Mamba 24: You've taken a masterpiece and improved it! Great additions to the We Are Laker Family verse! Great idea by utz to add them.

I posted this last night, just HAD to post it again, it had me cracking up for a few minutes straight. It's from the Knicks/Celtics preseason game a few days back. Tommy Heinsohn was on a roll that night:

Thank you KOBEMVP888, because I FREAKING HATE MJ!!! There fore you know, I mean you just know i have to say it...OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!!!

@IHEARTHKB24… “@ LakerTom - they will play the Warriors on Jan 12 at Oracle that should be the best time to meet or we could meet before then???” I am probably going to go to that game with Mrs. LakerTom and my son and grandson but would love to meet any other Bay Area Lakers Bloggers going to that game at halftime for a beer, which is what Jay Jay and I did last year. We should definitely meet at a sports bar on the peninsula to watch a game on the tube together before then. I’m a little busy today since our fiscal year end was September 30 but I will take a look at the schedule this weekend and make some suggestions. The rest of our Bay Area group should do the same.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@HOBBITMAGE… Did I remember hearing you post once that you were also in the Bay Area? If so, I would love the chance to buy you a beer to apologize for our past confrontations and get our new season off to a great and harmonious start. Let me know if you live in NorCal. Thanks.

Mamba 24- Being a Lakerholic had to go to rehab for a while, man controlling my life, wife orders. I know rehab is for quitters, well... couldn't do it. Diehard Lakerholic, seeking NEW WIFE.

I think this will serve as great motivation for Artesticles this season. As soon as mid summer I was thinking this would be the year he gets a little more comfortable and lose his focus-now I am starting to realize the man has really changed for the better and will not allow himself to be distracted. Halle-Booyah!

Now I'm going to say it one more time, I have no more money to bribe you people to sing Mamba24's praises so you might as well just..Stop it! Stop it Now! LOL! Thank you Cyber much appreciated. Carry On.

Mamba 24- Being a Lakerholic had to go to rehab for a while, man controlling my life, wife orders. I know rehab is for quitters, well... couldn't do it. Diehard Lakerholic, seeking NEW WIFE. Posted by: 2Phatt | October 15, 2010 at 10:47 AM

LMAO!!! BRAVO! BRAVO!! NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!

@JEFE101… Thanks for the Butch Cassidy bicycle link. I thought Mamba24 had posted it but he corrected me. As you could see from my comments to Mamba on the last thread, “Raindrops” always brings back my UCLA Bruins and John Wooden memories. Next to the Lakers, my greatest basketball memories. Thanks.

GO LAKERS!!!!!

I think it is awesome what Ron is doing...awesome. Who knew he had an 'old soul' all this time. Look he will always have the memories. Even more important the memories AND the knowledge that when the Lakers were more or less collapsing around him in game 7 HE was the team's rock. No ring can matach that knowledge.

Now would I be well, honestly, elightened enough to know that but also DO what he is doing, no. Speaks a lot about Ron the man. I wish the pathetic haters I have heard on talk radio (i.e. Jim Rome, can't believe this but did listen to Jim Rome a couple of minutes switching radio stations)would go away. Just because someone is doing something good beyond what you would be do, don't get all cyncial or whatever. Ron might be a tough guy but he is a tough guy who leads with his heart not his chin or fists (anymore).

2 excellent comments in a row:

KobeMVP888: "More physical my ass. Is he saying, for example, that the Greg Ostertag-Karl Malone-Bryon Russell-Jeff Horncek-John Stockton starting 5 of the 1997 Jazz was more physical than the famed Kendrick Perkins-Kevin Garnett-Paul Pierce-Ray Allen-Rajon Rondo starting 5 (who the Lakers still have not beaten)? Give me a break. There's more to being "physical" than hand checking. He's full of crap and he knows it. It has done nothing but get MORE physical since he left the game."

max: "Did anybody else see Ron on Mo'Nique last night wearing just boxers? I hope it was boxers and t-shirt off course. I am sure he's crazy, mad funny but crazy. The wierd thing he will call Kobe out but starts to defend him as soon as anybody says anything slightly negative about Kobe (he loves Kobe you can see it). He spoke about the need to talk about your problems to somebody/anybody and it made sense who knew, the best advice i've heard all year was from a Ron Artest. He should be a Laker for the rest of his life, he looks like someone who has finally found where he belongs. "


I continue to say it, and will repeat it here: We got some of the smartest and best people around on this blog!


GO LAKERS!!!!!

Larry of LA: I listened to the Rome show for over 10 years, stopped listening a few years back, I'm just curious. What's he saying about Ron Ron selling his ring?


GO LAKERS!!!!!

As to Michael Jordon, dude is not a very good human being. His hall of fame speech was PAINFUL to watch, almost sickening. He has confused being competitive with being an a_ssho__. Merlin Olson would have compeated with Jordon every inch...every inch and Olson was a great human being. So would have Hank Aaron, Peyton Manning, Magic, etc..

But to my knowledge they were not the blankity blank human being by all accounts Michael was and is. He probably even got his dad killed over his own gambling debts/activity. Not intentionally, but still. I mean does it get any worse as a human being than that? It almost doesn't.

@HOBBITMAGE… Did I remember hearing you post once that you were also in the Bay Area? If so, I would love the chance to buy you a beer to apologize for our past confrontations and get our new season off to a great and harmonious start. Let me know if you live in NorCal. Thanks.Posted by: LakerTom | October 15, 2010 at 10:45 AM

WOW!!! That's about the Classiest thing I have ever seen! KUDOS LAKERTOM!!!!!

@ mamba24 - I don't post much so I really appreciate you puttin me on the roll call...thanks!!!

@ LakerTom - we should definitely meet before the Lakers & Warriors game...where in Peninsula would you suggest we meet?

@hobbitimage - if you're from the Bay Area It would be nice if you could join us.

I don't post much so I really appreciate you puttin me on the roll call...thanks!!!Posted by: iheartkb24 | October 15, 2010 at 11:04 AM

Whether you post one time or a thousand, you are a member of Lakers Nation and as such it is my honor to put you on The Roll Call. Carry On!

@mamba24 - Holy toledo that was a Roll Call! Goodness graqcious, man, how do you fit all of that ino this tiny box (that's what she said)!


@CyberCosmiX - Agreed, whether we agree with each other's opinions or not, we are a savy bunch with a ton of moxie!


@The Blog - In honor of the Tick, SPOOOOOOOON!


@LakerTom - Are you getting to watch any of the non-European pre-season games? Secondly, and you may have been posed this question before, but do you consider the Warriors to be your second favorite team?


@MM - (Regarding Mass Hysteria over the Miami site on ESPN) Phred nailed it. It's simple supply side economics. It wouldn't exist if there was no demand.


Off to SLO to see my lady! WHOO-HOO!

@Jamie Sweet,LoL! Sorry Bro. I'm exploring ways of compressing the size. A new version will be out for the next game. Carry On!

Thanks Cyber, in am a huge football (soccer) fan and when i see the turmoil my favorite team Liverpool is going through (owners who don't love the team, players who are not playing as hard as they should); it makes me realise how fortunate i am/we all are to support the Lakers.

The Outlaw,

"I think Ron Ron will be a leading candidate in the DPOY discussion."

He damned well should be. This Championship has washed off a lot of bad karma for Thriller. "The experts" {sarcasm font boldly on} will now be able to start looking at his performance objectively again.

What do we play for? RINGS!!!

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

GO LAKERS!!!

@ mamba24 - No apologies needed, epic is the new thing with the kids these days, after all. Also, many thanks for using my name to kick off a good mornin'


Since so much music has been busted out this fine morning and seeing as it's Friday, I leave with you this. This happened about 4 months before I was born, if memory serves.

Have a good weekend, all.

Michael Jordan's a jerk.

GO LAKERS!!!

Whats up NorCal Lakers fans!? I am a WayFarNorcal Laker fan so I cant really just meet in the bay anyday... But I will be in Sacramento for the November 3rd game!

I went off on Jordan yesterday, won't do it again, but I totally agree. Here is someone who quietly got run out of the league because of his gambling problems/mobster ties, and who has had numerous infidelities over the years and he gets a pass for basically saying he relied on no teammates but himself in close games at the HOF - and gets a pass for everything he does.

Now, Kobe makes a mistake one time, sleeping with some little tramp that has slept with 3 other guys in 24 hours and runs off to some bars and friends bragging about it, sees $_$ in her eyes and reports a 'rape' happened - which was never proven (because it didn't happen...) and it has tarnished his reputation.

I'm sick of MJ. If he had played the C's, he'd have averaged no more than 25 on them. Everytime he would have headed into the post, they'd have eaten him alive. KG had the length to smother his post-up game, Paula is more physical then most players in the '90s, and Perkins would have eaten his lunch if he tried posting up down-low.

MJ is straight-up wrong. He would have been LESS successful nowadays, there are stronger teams/players now than there was then. Kobe takes a more difficult shot on average than MJ, who kept his shooting percentages up by posting up a lot more. He's full of crap, he should just acknowledge that Kobe is on the verge of reaching him, then passing him, and not look like the bitter ex-athlete he is making himself look like...


GO LAKERS!!!!!

@ Laker Tom - your welcome!
@ mamba24 - it is certainly one of the most iconoclastic matches of song with scene in movie history!
@ 63 Footer - ah yes, the late, great Connie Hall - in addition to Butch, he's lit some of my all time favorite films: Cool Hand Luke, The Day of the Locust, Marathon Man, Jennifer Eight, Searching for Bobby Fisher, American Beauty, Road to Perdition - one of a kind, he'll be missed to be sure.

Board on fire today!

Loved Ron Ron scraping the reality show. Didn't care for him calling out Lebron. But as long as he Walks The Walk...its good.

@Mamba - I went to Webster's to look up the definition of foxy...and a picture of Pam Grier came up....good call on Paul Harvey!

@Art - no deejay...just a regular music loving guy :-)

@Lew - I like Young Guns much better than your NKOTB suggestion. One of Bon Jovi's best IMHO...or maybe I'm giving it extra love because of the movie.

@FEARless - So Barkey wasn't fearless???

@LakerTom - Sinead definitely did Prince proud...dare I say nearly surpassed him! She's also has a good remake of House of the Rising Sun. Oh yeah...loved your Dick Enberg story.

@Utz - What time is It! I expect a selection entered by you when you get home.

@63 Footer - Good selection Mick getting his rap on! How was the movie?

@jefe - great entry. I don't know which is best the movie or the song? Too close to call.


Searching for Bobby Fisher, American Beauty, Road to Perdition - one of a kind, he'll be missed to be sure. Posted by: Jefe101 | October 15, 2010 at 11:23 AM

Searching for Bobby Fisher, Now that was a GREAT FILM!! I had each of my Daughters learn from that film. I had forgotten about it thanks. I think I'll watch it again tonight

A Liverpool fan. gulp. I'm an Everton man myself. But we're together on the Laker bandwagon though, so all is good. But if you think Liverpool's got problem's, just look right across to Goodison Park and you'll see some REAL problems, lol. No problems here though, we are all united on the Laker front!

BTW, for those unfamiliar with the EPL, Liverpool/Everton is about as big a rivalry as Lakers/Celtics - except that their teams are located about a mile away from each other...

WTH? A picture of The Fabulous Justanothermambafan should have come up. Never use Websters again I say. NEVER!!!

Jordan saying he would score 100pts in todays NBA...is straight out of the Wilt I'm retired but don't forget about me because I'm still the greatest handbook.

Remember Wilt would always bash Kareem and tell of the feats he would accomplish if he was still playing.

Anyway just extra motivation for Kobe. Not that he needs it.

@ AndTheJellosJigglin… “Whats up NorCal Lakers fans!? I am a WayFarNorcal Laker fan so I cant really just meet in the bay anyday... But I will be in Sacramento for the November 3rd game.” Even though you’re way north, I’ve added you to the list. Got to with a handle like that.

And yes, we is on fire today! Full of moxie and all! lol...


GO LAKERS!!!!!

Hey Mamba24............ Awesome bandwagon!!!!!!!!About time for this season to start..YEEAAA!! I had to take a little time off from posting, cause I am real fiesty and had to control my self from replying to the the Favre haters. You know people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones....unless there at Princess Jimmy's house!! LOL Your Bears are really doing good. If we don't beat the Cowboy's Sun....it's probably over.
I have to say, I love that Ron Ron. more and more. Now that he knows the triangle.........watch out NBA!!!!!!!! And he does respect Kobe, props for that!!

@LRob: You're late, brother. I did The Bird in my cubicle sometime around 9:15 AM today. I've moved on to my Blaxploitation Movie Music playlist called (AHEM) "SUPERBAD"! It's a compilation of theme songs, memorable cuts from specific scenes like chases & love scenes, and a batch of old Blaxploittion radio commercials I downloaded a few years ago.

Hey NewMexicoLL, there you are. If anybody knows about taking a little time off it's me! LOL! Yeah you need a bulletproof vest for some of the shots coming from some of these shows. Don't worry about it. It is what it is. Yeah sadly I have to agree if they don't beat the Cowboys, things will be looking grim but...Things were looking grim for the Freakin LA Lakers going into The 4th quarter of the 7th game and look at us now. So don't give up till Charles Barkley sings. LOL! Good to see you back on The Blog.

And I hope you had Curtis Mayfield's SuperFly on the download.


@JAMIE… “@LakerTom - Are you getting to watch any of the non-European pre-season games? Secondly, and you may have been posed this question before, but do you consider the Warriors to be your second favorite team?” Jamie, the only game that was trouble was the last one in Sacramento which I had to watch over the web which was so jerky I ended up not watching. Haven’t checked Comcast’s schedule for the game against the Nuggets on Saturday but hopefully I’ll get to see them.
~
As for the Warriors, yes they are my second favorite team, which really hasn’t meant much during the reign of Chris Cohan. If you recall, they were my first favorite NBA team because of Wilt. I am going to enjoy seeing the team respond to the new owner and coach. And because I’m half Chinese, I will be rooting for Jeremy Lin to make it in the league. Warriors fans are some of the best in the league after Lakers fans. The support they have given this franchise who totally disrespected them is something the Bay Area should be very proud of. Of course, I am still mad that they came in and stole Lin from us at the very last minute due to Joe Lacob.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@CCX… I’m actively rooting for the Giants just because I want a chance to see another Yankees World Series Triumph. My only other live series games was at the old Yankee Stadium when we lost to the Dodgers in 6. Looking to erase that bad memory from my hard drive. Getting my old Yankee gear out of storage, Mike.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@ANDTHEJELLOSJIGGLIN… I love “Artesticles” as a nickname for RonRon. It says it all. How can you not love the guy. And I think he should continue to do what he’s doing. No need to tone it down out of fear that it will motivate LeBron. He can take all the notes he wants and it ain’t going to make it easier against Ron.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@LROB… I’ve never been a fan of women with little hair but I have to admit that Sinead in that video looks simply beautiful. I have about 100 YouTube favorites that I shuffle to close out the last hour of work every day as I send out hordes of sales reports and I have to stop and watch every time that video comes up. By far my favorite Prince song, probably because of Sinead. You are truly the blog Music Master, my friend.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TOM

JellosJiggling - 'Artesticles'...excellent...I love it...

Mamba24 - LEWSTRS present and accounted for Roll Call...awesome roll call today...and great edit from a great suggestion from Utz...can you please add Cofm99 on the roll call...our new free agent signing...lol

Laker Tom - Heck I'll try to show up for the Nor Cal Council Meeting...can a former So Cal boy, and present Vegas guy attend...

iheartkb24 - Great to see you Mare...I for some reason thought you live in England...maybe you were just on vacation...good to see you on the Blog today...

LRob - the Nation IS on fire today...so many great songs posted...here is one more for the road...in honor of our Laker Family...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YZpbYqOw4o

MVP888 - Kobe has to fend off LeBron and now MJ is coming out to rain on the parade...No biggie...Kobe can show off his 6th ring in the Figueroa parade...and let that do all the talking...

justa - where are you my sister...you have been MIA for the last 2 days...you are probably slammed at work...

Jon K - I hope the best for the city of Cleveland and their Cavs...now that I think about it...I had no problem with the Cavs or their fans, till Lechoke showed up...then I hated them...but when it comes down to it...I just hated the LeBrick fans...and not the Cavs fans...There was this die hard Crab fan named Cavintampa from my old blog...he was a major troll and big trash talker...But after the 'decision'...he actually tried to sell all his LeBron stuff...no takers...sold only one item...and he burned the rest...lmao...

Hope everyone has a safe and great weekend...Don't forget it's the Staples Shootout for the week end treat...

Lakers Dynasty - The Next Generation...

#17 Coming Up!!!

@ Mamba24 - "Other Teams may River Dance..."

Still lmfao - I can't get the image out of my head. That was FUNNY!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytcZIfvSWW4

Laker Tom -

Technically the baseball team I root for are the St. Louis Cardinals...but for the American League it's the Angels and the Yankees...

I will be sporting my Yankees jersey tonight while watching the game...Giants vs Yanks in the WS would be great...I hate the Phillies...

But in the essence of competition...It would be great if the Yankees can beat and shut up those Phils...and their excellent pitching...

Like the Lakers...Yankee fans want to beat the best to be the best...Like us bragging about winning the Finals...which is a bigger 'brag'...beating the Nets or the Celtics...lol

Lakers Dynasty - The Next Generation...

#17 Coming Up!!!

@Lew: We (the Cards) started out like gangbusters but the wheels came off around the All Star Break and never got it back on track. Oh well...next year.

"Other Teams may River Dance..." Still lmfao - I can't get the image out of my head. That was FUNNY!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytcZIfvSWW4 Posted by: frmkt | October 15, 2010 at 01:03 PM

LMAO! Good Piece! That was the Triangulators quote I just put it on Roll Call.

@LakerTom. Thanks twice brother! I grew up in Ventura county and have been representing the LakeShow in northern California with even greater passion for the last 11 years; nice to be on that list. As to the 'JelloJigglin': Moment of silence for the great Chick Hearn...

@LEWSTRS & LakerTom. Yes! Artesticles is the greatest nickname for that beastly defender. He obviously has some big ones, ask the likes of the Durantula and PP. He guarded them so close last spring that they probably have a good idea.
