Photo caption contest: Ron Artest kisses his biceps

60338221Any time Lakers forward Ron Artest runs a fast break one of three things usually happen.

He either over-dribbles and commits a turnover, he runs like a bull in a china shop and earns an offensive foul, or he misses a layup in ugly fashion. Rarely does Artest dunk, a point he conceded earlier in the season when he said, "I don't jump that high."

He had just enough hops in the Lakers' 139-137 triple-overtime victory Tuesday over the Phoenix Suns, however. When he stole the ball from Suns guard Steve Nash in the third overtime, Artest drove for a fast break and finished with a one-handed dunk, giving the Lakers a 135-132 lead with 1:53 remaining and leaving the 18,997 fans at Staples Center in hysterics.

Artest wasn't done entertaining the crowd. He then stopped and posed, flexing his muscles and kissing his biceps. He shrugged off the theatrics afterward, declaring he was really comfortable basking in the spotlight because he knew what the outcome would entail. "I knew it was going to happen, so half the time I was just on roller skates," he said.

It turns out the antics may earn him a wrestling nickname from Lakers forward Lamar Odom.

"He understands the stage we play on," Odom said of Artest. "He's going to make a great wrestler. He's got the antics and he knows what's going on. He'll hit a guy with a chair. Ron will be one of the best wrestlers ever. His interviews are great and that's what it takes to be one of the champions in wrestling right now. You have to have one of the best interviews."

So here's a two-part contest. What should Artest's wrestling name be and what would be your caption to this photo? On a related note, I will be talking to Artest soon and I will ask him 10 of the best fan-submitted questions. In addition, I'll also forward him the list of wrestling name ideas and photo captions and he'll pick the best one. Feel free to leave questions on the comment threads below or at The Times' Lakers Facebook page

Can Artest's improved play help the Laker's get another 3-peat?

It's up to him and Bynum to get the Lakers to the promised land

@PLG- Congrats on the Friedman. I always love your passion.

Regarding last night's game, I kept hoping that Alvin Gentry wouldn't substitute Aaron Brooks for Vince Carter in OT, which I think would have turned the game in the Suns' favor. He is another matchup nightmare, can hit the 3 and penetrate. Yes, he's small, but with offense dominating defense last night, what would they have lost by playing Brooks instead of Vince Carter? Anyway, it's a thought I had during the game that I figured I would share for what it's worth.

"Charlie Sheen's bi-winning got nothing on these guns! Kiss em Sheen go ahead, it'll make you into a Champion!"

OMG, what a marathon last night, but I kept myself up and was rewarded with an epic game.

All Lakers fans here at work are yawning like me.

But we won :)

Cheers.

Great game to watch, if you like constant drama, ha, ha! Go Lakers!

Perfectly stated. While last night was a poor performance, I still think he adds to the team (esp for the what he is paid). He will be back next year...the Lakers def want him back. The same for Matt.

Thank you for the kind words. Whenever one goes out of his or her way to take the time to put a lot of thought into a post, it is always nice to get positive feedback! Thanks again.

I'm really not sure why some analysts refer to the Lakers as "old?" Here are the ages, which to me seem to be fairly prime:

Kobe-32
Pau-30
Drew-23
UPS-25
Ron-31
Lamar-31
Steve-31
Mat-31

I'm not gonna count Derek, ha, ha.

By the way, D-Wade is 29, I guess he's approaching old, fast, ha, ha.

Tell me about it! As you know, I go to about 1/3 of the home games, but I was buzzing like I was actually there after that one and couldn't fall asleep until about 3:30 AM! What fun!!

It's too bad we couldn't have got Brooks. He's making very little pay in comparison to most quick PG's.

WHEW! WHAT A WEEK, AND IT IS ONLY WEDNESDAY! . . .


Sunday...
--Son calls-- "Dad, contractions are coming faster and harder"
--Lakers win playoff-esque 84-80 battle v. longtime nemisis Portland.


Monday...
--Son calls-- "Dad, good morning, we are headed to the hospital"... Thus begins the nearly 36 hour vigil. Monday never ends, it just merges with Tuesday somewhere between the uncomfortable chair and uncomfortable couch in the hospital maternity waiting room.


Tuesday...
--Son proclaims, "I am a DAD!"... overwhelmed at the reality of becoming a Grandpa for the first time!
--Lakers win TRIPLE OT game v. the Suns.


That's three days, two Laker wins, one Grandson. PRICELESS!

Once Phil is gone, it will depend on the new system that the Lakers run with respect to whether or not changes at the lead guard position will be made. In discussing Fish, Phil even said the other day that he's not really a "point guard." I know Steve Blake gets a lot of flack in Lakerland, but he does what he is asked to do and that can make him look bad. Yes, I wish he would finish more often or pull up and take a mid-range shot, but he's more concerned with organizing the offense and playing scrappy defense, which also goes unappreciated. Has he been what a lot of fans were hoping he would be? No. Has he been a "bust"? Definitely not. Yet I digress...

Regardless, the hope of many fans to acquire a prototypical point guard will probably come to fruition in the next couple of years. Meanwhile, the lead guard position remains the least important position in Phil Jackson's system and, by design, it occupies only 8.4% of the Lakers' payroll. This fan is satisfied with Derek Fisher and Steve Blake, 2 veteran lead guards who take care of the ball very well and play tough team defense. It will be interesting to see whether the Lakers can remain on an elite level the day the triangle is scrapped and the ball is handed to a player not named Kobe Bryant who dribbles around a lot looking for someone to set an illegal screen or, as we saw last night in the case of the great Steve Nash, multiple illegal screens on the same play. I guess it takes more than one pulling guard to rub out the physical Derek Fisher!

By the way, I recently read a breakdown of the average age per minute of playing time of the NBA teams and the Lakers ranked 3rd at about 30.75. I don't remember where I saw that, but that's about the average age for championship team rotations over the years. So while we might be a little "long in the tooth" compared to the rest of today's NBA, we are not old where it matters .. championships!

Thanks buddy. AND, your analysis of PG position is outstanding! We are not going to pursue our PG of the future until we know the future philosophy of our offense via next coaching regime. Perhaps your comments will help many of the bashers and worriers to enjoy the moment and be patient on what is to come... in due time.

Kobe Bryant has supported the following charities:

* After-School All-Stars
* Aid Still Required

* Cathy's Kids Foundation
* Vijay Amritraj Foundation


To be honest I have no idea who gives more $$ and to be honest I don't
really care. I just find it sad that a supposed fan *NEVER* actually looks
to find out if Kobe does anything positive.

http://www.chacha.com/question/how-much-money-does-kobe-bryant-give-to-charity

As of 2009, the Kobe Bryant China Fund has raised a total of 42 million yuan, which is equivalent to 6.15 million dollars, from various enterprises. ChaCha!

“Help Haiti with George Lopez & Friends” will star comedians George Lopez, Cedric the Entertainer, Margaret Cho, Russell Peters, Cheech & Chong and Ray Romano in addition to musical guests Cypress Hill, Slash, Beth Hart and Andy Garcia who will perform with the Lopez Tonight house band, The Ese Vatos for a night filled with music and laughs. Celebrities Kobe Bryant, Samuel L. Jackson, Larry David, Don Cheadle, Amber Valetta, Eva Longoria Parker, Magic Johnson, Charlie Wilson, & Jennifer Love Hewitt will all serve as special guest hosts for the evening.

Tickets are on sale now and priced at $50 and $75, with proceeds going to CARE and their relief efforts in Haiti. Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster locations, charge-by-phone (800) 745-3000 and at Ticketmaster.com.


Yep. That Kobe is a real selfish *&^%$#

Would anyone want to know what the definition of Hell is? To bad I'm going to tell you anyway!!! It's being forced for eternity to listen to this ISH:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0AGiq9j_Ak,
OH THE HUMANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Definately a marathon last night i couldn't go to bed until the game was over.That isn't the best thing if your on the east coast like myself;and only got 3hrs sleep.I found myself sleeping on the job today,thank God my boss didn't catch me napping.I thought we got a raw deal on that foul at the end of regulation which wasn't in the act of shooting for Fry.Earlier in the season they probably would have lost a game like that.But now their really not trying to loose games.
You got to love Rons antics with how he would play to the crowd with the flexing of the muscles and kissing the biscepts after he makes a great play.It seems to me like he's having fun out their now which relaxes him and his game has been much better. I say long as he keeps contributing the way he has been keep it coming Ron Ron that makes our chances of 3peating much easier.

Go Lakers!

Yes Jon K Derek Fisher was the reason the Lakers won the game last night. You definitely are a genius and your analysis is spot on !!! They would not have won that game if Fisher was not on the floor for all 3 overtimes !!!

Fisher did not hit a shot all night. Played terrible defense. Had 2 assists in 46 minutes. But his steal at the end won the game.

Just saw something that was puzzling.

In the race to NBA points leader, it appears as if only regular season numbers are counted.

For example, KAJ leads the table with 38387 pts, followed by The Mailman with 36298.

Why aren't playoff totals accounted for in these numbers?

Factoring the post-season, here's what the top 3 looks like:

1. KAJ - 44149
2. Mailman - 41689
3. MJ - 38279

As for currently active players:
Shaq - 33838

As for *actually* active players:
Kobe - 32613

In ascending order of "ballhog-iness":

3. Dwyane Wade/Kobe Bryant - tied. 0.73 shot attempts/minute
2. LeBron James - 0.74 shot attempts/minute
1. Michael Jordan - 0.82 shot attempts/minute

My definition of shot attempts/minute - (Field Goals Attempted + Free Throws Attempted)/(Minutes played)

Isn't that interesting? Our resident "ballhog" actually is less trigger-happy than LBJ or the GOAT (MJ)*

* For me, the GOAT is KAJ. As many rings as MJ, but better stats/longevity.

I know this goes against every fiber of a Laker fan's being
BUT
Kevin McHale is one smart person and would make a heckuva Laker Coach, that is if he doesn't replace Doc Rivers.

Watching him on his stints with NBA TV and doing commentary on last nights game, his basketball knowledge is very enlightening and refreshing. He's old school but not married to it.

PREACH mamba24!! OMG!!! PREACH!

McHale would throw a whole Laker season just to give his beloved Celtics a better shot at yet another title! Might just as well suggest Tommy Heinsohn! Remember, Pau was not the givaway of the century by Memphis - KG to Celtics was the one that should have caused a jail sentence (KG handover done by no other than McHale to Ainge!)

Sorry Laker Mike.......... My bad, I got my Laker MEN mixed up..So my congrats to you and the Mrs Mike on your
Little Laker bundle!!! It's a lot of fun being Grandparents..ENJOY!
@Laker Tom...Sorry about that mix up. I now THINK I remember you coaching your grand kids. Will be waiting for Awesome Andrew to get back.

Ron's stepped up play is a major reason we will be a tough team to beat in a series. I see improvement in the bench players as well...keep working on the corner shot Steve it will start to drop! I thought the Suns would never go away...nice job starters in the OT's.

McHale as next Laker coach??? .... and by then Rambis will have been released by the T-Wolves (pointguards-a-plenty), will come back to LA...and they can sit next to each other game after game after game..., yup...sounds like a plan!!!

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!! The hell with the game, I'd pay to see that!!!!!

Remember the KG handover of KG to the Celtics was not McHale's 1st boo-boo, he had another boo-boo, sitting on the Laker bench....imagine if he got the job, and next training camp...McHale explaining what he expects out of Joe Smith, who obviously has lost his "game"...16-17 years in the league does that, and he never went deep into the playoffs like Kobe...Joe had plenty of time to keep his body in shape, but I guess he settled into the NBA tour route....Mamba24, that would be fun to watch as well....

Mamba24, Hell happened again...there was a clip of Jordan telling UNC team, not to wear Kobe's, told them he'd hook them up.....I'm sure they already are, but it was kinda childish....

OK, Soooooo, Here we go....
Laker Nation, I have been searching my soul and I have come to the conclusion that I may have been one of the reasons Justanothermambafan left LakersBlog. No, I am not the “Stalker” she was referring to in her message, but I may have been a contributing cause to her leaving. With that being said and Justa being much more vital to this Blog than mamba24 could ever be, I now leave The Blog for good in the hopes that it will help ease Justanothermambafans return. Thank you Nation for indulging me over the years and I’m sorry Justa for anything that I may have posted that may have contributed to your decision to leave. I think you know, all I ever want is whatever makes you happy. OK that’s it. Sorry for everything. No rah, rahs or music, I’ve done that ISH enough times. Let’s try something new…like a simple thank you and goodbye.


Hey guys. Just a reminder: I will be talking to Ron Artest soon and I will forward him 10 of your best questions. Tell me your questions in the comments threat, at The Times' Lakers Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/latimeslakers

Ron's wrestling name? Psycho or Thriller

or Junk Yard Dog

I would pay to see ron in a wrestling PPV!

BTW fav play of the game anyone? I liked 2, the Artest steal dunk and flex, and Gasol banging inside for a bank shot with 2 minutes to go, that was some heavy action! Go Pau!

question for Ron? (for next time)

When will he write an autobiography?

How about Ron "the Artist" Artest as a wrestling name?!
