Ron Artest tweets he may give away his a second NBA ring (assuming he gets one)

54469036There have been plenty of signs that Ron Artest feels confident the Lakers will return and win in the NBA Finals this season.

He's expressed little concern that he might regret auctioning off his championship ring once he receives it on opening night, Oct. 26 against Houston, saying the funds will go toward mental-health causes and that he will have even more motivation to win another ring.

After practice Saturday he said he'd like to drop down to 245 pounds once the playoffs started but worried about having to bulk up again once he matched up with the Miami Heat's LeBron James in the NBA Finals.

And he's asking fans via Twitter to write an essay on how they could make America better, with the winner earning Artest's second ring.

If you are inclined to enter the contest, feel free to send your essays to Artest at his Twitter account, RONARTESCOM. But I'm sure there are a number of you who would rather Artest keep the ring. After all, he earned it, and it's possible he'd regret giving it away no matter the good intentions. So feel free to use this forum to enter your essay, to give Artest your two cents on whether the giveaway is a good idea or to tell what you would do with the ring if you won the contest.

Banks are closed so I figured you'd have time for a quiz. Very good. Sorry but you don't win Ron Ron's 2nd ring!

LRob -

How did you like my selection of Do You Feel Like I Do...

Just hearing that song brings back so many memories...The Summer of 76 was one wild and crazy year...lot's of memories...blurred by too much partying...LMAO...

I love how this Blog has so much knowledge in music and it's history...who said Laker fans are shallow...We have great taste and wisdom in music, food, sports and of course...The Lakers...

Lakers Dynasty - The Next Generation...

#17 Coming Up...
Posted by: LEWSTRS | October 11, 2010 at 12:56 PM

wow and WTF!! The Miami Heat get their own micro-site on BSPN??

So, how much down low would BSPN go to put their mouth up Bron's behind?

Answer: All the way down south to Miami!! LOL

@Jon K (RE -Doc Rivers agonizing off-season) NO feel no guilt at cackling madly at Doc Rivers. Remember, he still seems to think we haven't beaten his team at full strength (which is a two way street since they've never beaten us at full strength either). Now he's already talking about how their window is closing (why he's realizing it just now is something that would make a GM scratch his head...but OK) and starting a brand new pity parade. That will be the perfect whiny team with an all NBA whiny GM, an all NBA whiny head coach, Paul Pierce who never met a whine he didn't want to try and Shaquille O'Neal providing the, "I don't like Kobe too much" sub plot the NBA craves in it's marquee match ups. Yessir, it's a gonna be a helluva season!


Also, i find it a bit strange that ESPN has created a separate Miami Heat site...kinda lame...but not unheralded, they can only react to the market and the guppies want more LBJ. So...


@LEWSTRS - cue Star Trek TNG theme music to your procolmation ad we're all good. Title #17? Make it so.

RON RON KEEP YOUR RINGS!!!! YOU EARNED THEM!!!!!

Please, please, PLEASE Someone in the organization make him a 2nd ring if he auctions this first one off to charity, with the understanding that he MUST keep it!!!!!!

- - -

Jon K: Frankly, what Doc is experiencing is only a small, small percentage of the misery that the Celtic globetrotters inflicted on those Jerry West/Elgin Baylor Laker teams and Laker fans.

BTW, yes, the Celtic dynasty in the '60s was impressive, but compiling 7 HOF'ers in an 8-team/9-team league, it was like the Yankee's of today x2 in terms of outspending and such. Celtic fans always bring up those teams, but since 1970 they're no better than the Bulls:

Lakers: 11 Titles in 19 appearances
Celtics: 6 Titles in 9 appearances
Bulls: 6 Titles in 6 appearances

I'm just sayin...


GO LAKERS!!!!!

@LakerTom - Astute observations regarding Mike Singletary, it's so rare for a player to make a good coach in the NFL, you kind of get the feeling this hire was a gimmick. Also, they don't have the personnel to play smash mouth, too light up front, too slow in the back field. Too many QB questions for a team that, historically, features great QBs...it's too bad because (since I've always hated the Faiders) I've considered the 49ers kinda like a home town team since the Rams bailed on Anaheim. I wasn't into football until the last few years and so haven't really assigned any single team as mine, although if you put a gun to my head I would say the Vikings first (pre-Favre, but I love them getting Randy Moss back), then the Eagles (with Michael '2nd Chance' Vick leading the way, talk about resurgence, geez), then the Niners followed by any underdog playing Pittsburgh, Indianopolis, any team from NY (how many football teams does one state need?) or the Cowboys. I hate the Cowboys. America's team my tuckus.

@ Jamie...

Great suggestion...and it ties in beautifully...

@LakerTom -
I'd love to see what Vernon Davis could do as Ron Ron's backup.

All that offensive firepower wasted - Davis, Ginn, Crabtree, and Gore. We're talkin about 4 pro-bowl talents at the skill positions and a fairly decent O-line. There's a disconnect somewhere and it starts at the top.

Don't count on Luck going pro. He doesn't need the money and if the NFL has labor troubles this summer, count on him to stay. Mrs. HTJ is a Stanford Alum and she reminds me every weekend that he said he's staying. Seems like he means it.

Don't we have some preseason games on tap? Twitter reports KB didn't practice today, just weights.

@Laker Tom and MVP888 - Man sorry to say, but the Niners are a bust this year...

======

Lew, by the way, LakerTom and I have another dynasty we root for ... the defending World Champion New York Yankees. So as "painful" as the demise of the post-DeBartolo 49ers has been, two out of three ain't bad!! So we really don't deserve ANYONE's pity, now do we?! :)

@ JUSTA...
"Hiya LakerMike - say hi to MrsLakerMike will ya? And don't forget to tell her she MUST be on here this year. Or else LOL!!! Justa sayin...... :)

I am passing along your siren-like threat to MrsLakerMike. She is an English Teacher, so any compositions by her would no doubt accompany a litany of proofreading remarks on previous comments. I have warned her that only LakerTOM and MM write with perfect syntax (perhaps we should add KobeMVP888 to the mix as well), the rest of us being the hacks.


@MM...
"LakerMike - Hah. you are indeed correct. NBA 2K10 predicted the Lakers would lose to Boston in five games. But you have to give them credit. They were correct in the Lakers advancing past OKC, Utah and Phoenix lol
MM

Add this to the reasons we all support you so much! Admitting you are wrong, but still ahead by a 3 to 1 count! lol Great combo of humility and efficiency! BRAVO...

Mike

I'd like to see the match up, Cousins vs. Caracter, against the Kings on Wendesday. I also recall Cousins trash-talked against Bynum but we wouldnt see that match up. Speaking of which, I heard that Pete Mickeal trash talked to Kobe. Mickeal now all figured out how to be a Laker. He is now waiting for Kobe to recruit him next season.

Especially for our blog, I've went ahead and compiled the secret little game modes, menu's and settings in NBA 2k11. If anyone knows any other secret game modes or tweaks please share them with us! =D


LIST OF SETTINGS, MODES AND TWEAKS IN NBA 2K11:

* THE STERN SETTING:
I think you left the Stern Setting on when you played the Heat game. You have to scroll through the "preferences" menu on the game, and buried deep down is a little thing you have to "uncheck": the Stern Setting. It changes how the refs officiate the game towards the Heat, and makes every player on the opposing team get a foul every time they come within five feet of Lebron or DWade.
It's automatically initialized, and most people don't even realize it. Turn it "off," and you'll get a more realistic result. (63 Footer)

* THE DON'T CRY LIKE A LITTLE BYATCH AND FOLD UNDER PRESSURE SETTING:
That's useful to turn off as well, though it doesn't make as much of an impact as the Stern Setting. (63 Footer)
Which possibly includes THE GIVE-UP RULE:
Has anyone found out if 2K11 includes the new 'give-up rule' for the little princess, and if it's enabled by default for the meat?

* THE PHIL THINKS IT'S A REGULAR SEASON GAME SETTING:
MM had the "Phil Thinks It's A Regular Season Game" Setting on. You gotta turn that one off, too, or he NEVER calls a time out, and leaves weird player groupings on the floor far too long. (63 Footer)

* THE PAULA PIERCE CRUMBLES TO THE GROUND ON THE SLIGHTEST OF TOUCHES MODE:
Wonder if anyone has found a way to turn off the 'Paula Pierce crumbles to the ground on the slightest of touches' mode, or is it always enabled like in real life? (CCX)

* THE YOU'VE NEVER BEATEN OUR STARTING FIVE SUB-MENU:
Yes, there is a switch for [switching off the Paula Pierce crumbles setting], but it's under the heading of Wheelchair Mode, which is a sub-setting on the "You've Never Beaten Our Starting Five" menu. (63 Footer)

* THE RAY ALLEN OPTION:
Under the You've Never Beaten Our Starting Five Sub-Menu, there's the 'Ray Allen one good game a series' option too, for added realism.

* THE BIG BABY RENAME RULE:
I did see the "rename" when you right-click Big Baby Davis' character. It lets you type in anything but "Big Baby," then changes it back by the time the game ends. (63 Footer)

* THE KG INTENSITY STARE MODE:
Searching around I found there's a 'KG intensity stare' mode too, under the "You've Never Beaten Our Starting Five" menu. It's set to 'on' - but it makes KG settle for 20 foot contested jumpers and not get any rebounds. (CCX)

* THE DROOLING DONKEY AND SHREK KIDS MODE:
There's a 'Drooling Donkey and Shrek' mode for the kids, in which you can change Big Baby and Nate Robinson into cartoon characters, but in that mode Kobe turns into a black mamba and bites them both, so by the end of the series they just sadly stare ahead and don't contribute. (CCX)

* -UNCONFIRMED- SHAQ GAMEPLAY SETTING:
I heard that in the new versions, if you play Shaq more than 15 minutes, or two consecutive games, he stops running, scoring and rebounding.

* KG CAN BARK LIKE A DOG AT HIS OPPONENT AND/OR BEYOTCH SLAP A REF, AND NOT GET CALLED FOR A 'T' SETTING:
don't forget to turn OFF the "KG can bark like a dog at his opponent and/or beyotch slap a ref, and NOT get called for a T" mode.... (justanothermambafan)

* THE TYREKE EVANS RACING MINI-GAME:
If you play the Kings and win (very difficult to do) you enter into Tyreke Evans racing mini-game, in which you try to drive 130mph and avoid any police cars. (CCX)

* THE UDONIS HASLEM 'HIDE THE BLUNTS' MINI-GAME:
Under the Stern Settings sub-menu, you can choose to play the Udonis Haslem Hide The Blunts Mini-Game. It is played like hot potatoes, the last one in the car holding the blunt loses. (CCX)

THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE FEW NBA2K11 HIDDEN TWEAKS AND SETTINGS! PLEASE SUBMIT ANY NEW SETTINGS YOU MIGHT FIND OR KNOW ABOUT SO THAT WE CAN KEEP THE LIST GOING!

@Lew - I missed that post. When was it? Summer of Frampton. LOVED IT!

@Cyber - I'm with you on Doc. But wait til they get spanked this year...then he'll know misery. Although he did once blow a 3-1 lead when he was with Orlando and as we all know that's pure misery.

@LakerPeace - Stairway to Heaven or Free Bird?? Hmmm I may have to flip a coin on that all though its hard to ever go against Zep!

#17 Coming Up...

Posted by: LEWSTRS | October 11, 2010 at 12:33 PM

I WAS working, but the TYREKE EVANS RACING MINI-GAME was too funny to pass up. If I were drinking milk, it would have shot out my nose.

This is the kind of stuff I like to read.

LakersReporter (Mike Trudell from twitter): "Jackson said today's practice went well, & was pleased with the focus. Team's getting back on track after Euro trip."

As we all know, Phil Jackson coaches in practice more than he does in games, so when I hear that practice "went well" from Phil Jackson and that he "was pleased with the team's focus" that speaks volumes more to me than if we lose a meaningless game during the regular season. I know that sounds weird, but the team probably got more out of today's practice than it will get out of Ring Night on October 26th or practice season loss #1 in Phoenix on October 29th.

CyberCosmiX, That was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL

You tell ‘em, Kenny. As Meat Loaf so aptly put it, “Now don’t be sad, ‘cause two out of three ain’t bad.”
And speaking of great rock songs, who could forget these great lyrics:
~
“You'll never find your gold on a sandy beach
You'll never drill for oil on a city street
I know you're looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks
But there ain't no Coup de Ville”
~
And all I can do
Is keep on telling you
I want you (I want you)
I need you (I need you)
But-there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't be sad (Don't be sad)
'Cause two out of three ain't bad. – Meat Loaf
`
With starting pitching like we got against the Twins, the Yankees are looking to go back-to-back while the Lakers are shooting for another 3-peat.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@HTJ… Vernon Davis probably could have been an NFL tight end. I’ve heard those same Stanford rumors that Mrs. HTJ was quoting but what if Harbaugh leaves to coach the Niners AND they have the #1 pick in the draft? What a dilemma? We’re o-5 and well on our way to the #1 pick but because the NFL West sucks so bad, we actually still have a chance to win the division and make the playoffs. How silly is that, counselor?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@Jamie … Thanks for the comments. Singletary reminds me of a guy who still thinks with his balls rather than his brain. I love his ability to motivate his players but he is looking more and more like a one-trick pony. It’s really hard to believe that LA still does not have a football team. Someone earlier had proposed that the city trade the Clippers for the Chargers. Sounds to me like the best solution to the problem. LOL!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@LAKERMIKE… “I am passing along your siren-like threat to MrsLakerMike. She is an English Teacher, so any compositions by her would no doubt accompany a litany of proofreading remarks on previous comments.

~
LOL. Of course, my first ambition was to be a high school English teacher and basketball coach, which is why this is the perfect blog for me. MM needs to start a spouses’ thread so Mrs. LakerTom, Mrs. HTJ, Mrs. LakerMike, and Mr. JustanotherMambaFan can tell us all what they really think of all the time and effort we put into the Lakers and this blog. On second thought, maybe better to leave well enough alone. LOL.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
@CCX… Man, the Mike and Mike show is running full throttle today. What a great list of options for NBA 2K11. I especially loved the The Udonis Haslem Hide the Blunts Mini-Game. I can still remember receiving all sorts of neat paraphernalia designed for secret stashes. My favorite, of course, was always the Coke can.

@LROB… “No pity is right. You guys could be Lions fans...now we deserve pity. Speaking of Lions & Niners. I'm still mad at 49ers because of Matt Millen!”
~
I have to say, there was a point in time when I was really jealous of the Lions for hiring Matt. I was so sure he was going to be a great GM. Just goes to show you that no matter how great an analyst someone might be, that is no guarantee that they will be a great general manager. Never understood how Matt kept wasting draft pick after draft pick on wide receivers, one of the most difficult positions for college football players to make the jump to the pros. Reminds of the Timberwolves trying to draft every point guard prospect there is. LOL. And yes, you have our pity. At least the Niners have a legacy to live up to that is more than Barry Sanders. :-)

Meatloaf and the New York Yankees will forever be linked to Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light." What was on the radio when the two youths were doing that thing they were doing? None other than Yankee great player and announcer Phil Rizzuto (may he rest in peace) announcing a baseball game!

Radio Broadcast (Phil Rizzuto):

Ok, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker
going here, two down, nobody on, no score,
bottom of the ninth, there's the wind-up and
there it is, a line shot up the middle, look
at him go. This boy can really fly!
He's rounding first and really turning it on
now, he's not letting up at all, he's gonna
try for second; the ball is bobbled out in center,
and here comes the throw, and what a throw!
He's gonna slide in head first, here he comes, he's out!
No, wait, safe--safe at second base, this kid really
makes things happen out there.
Batter steps up to the plate, here's the pitch--
he's going, and what a jump he's got, he's trying
for third, here's the throw, it's in the dirt--
safe at third! Holy cow, stolen base!
He's taking a pretty big lead out there, almost
daring him to try and pick him off. The pitcher
glance over, winds up, and it's bunted, bunted
down the third base line, the suicide squeeze in on!
Here he comes, squeeze play, it's gonna be close,
here's the throw, there's the play at the plate,
holy cow, I think he's gonna make it!

@KOBEMVP… Thanks for the memories. I had forgotten all about that. Gotta love Phil’s “Holy Cow.” And speaking of the Yankees, how great was it to see Yogi throw out the first pitch the other night. I still remember playing hooky from school to watch Don Larson throw that perfect game and seeing Yogi jump up into his arms after the last out. Perhaps, my oldest and most indelible Yankee memory. By the way, hope blogging with us doesn’t reduce your billable hours. The solution is just to find a client who is a Celtics fan to bill.

LakerPeace: "Mickeal now all figured out how to be a Laker. He is now waiting for Kobe to recruit him next season."

Yup. I thought the same thing, wrote as much in his HoopsHype.com blog LOL. Seriously though, he showed he's got some game, and some range too with those 3-pt bombs. I'm positive that game he had has GM's antenna's 'up' and I bet he'll be in the league soon...

LRob/justa: Best song? My mind immediately went to Master Of Puppets or Fade To Black (Metallica) - but deep-down I really think Stairway to Heaven should get the nod, it would be first on my list.

I agree 100%. I would put take the 72 Lakers over everybody. Top teams in last 40 years.

1. 1972 Lakers
2. 1987 Lakers
3. 1983 Sixers
4. 1986 Celtics
5. 1996 Bulls

STOP RIGHT THERE!!!!!!

Before you go any further - do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of your life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?

So would I, and I do agree with your list too (although most youngsters would consider it heresy not to put the 72-win '96 Bulls first - but you rightly slotted them about where they should be).

What I most like is that you've placed that '83 Sixers team in the top-5. That was an incredible team, with Moses Malone coming over, on the heels of being MVP, and made a great team with Dr. J/Cheeks/Toney/etc... that much better. In the early-showtime days, the C's wouldn't be able to get by the Sixers much (outside '81). It was the Lakers vs the 76ers playing for the title in 3-out-of-5 years.

I suppose one of those Russell-led green teams gotta be thrown on there too, at least top-10 for sure. Also, the '67 Sixers, and the '71 Bucks led by Kareem & the Big-O. Maybe too the back-to-back Rockets in '95, and the '00 Lakers...


GO LAKERS!!!!!

STOP RIGHT THERE!!!!!!
Before you go any further - do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?

Ron Artest May Give Away 2nd NBA Ring

What an Idiot....Fool, why don't you have the ring appraised, take the value of the ring and give cash in exchange to your favorite charity and keep the ring. Duh Duh Duuh! Where's my Prozac? Or give the ring to me. Bitcsssh!

Hmmm....

I think two things:

1) RonRon should keep his second ring.

2) I think I'll enter the contest anyway. But, I would then auction off the ring and use a good portion of the proceeds to make some MUCH needed upgrades at the school where I teach. The rest, sadly, would go towards bills, as mundane as that sounds.
