Another depressing loss for the Lakers last night (It’s ok, it’s still early), but this part early in the game was good for a little laugh.
Shout out to Ron Artest for hooking the makers of this site up with tix to the Lakers-Suns game last week.
Also, shout out to Trevor Ariza who went to Westchester High School with the makers of this site.

Once again, the Twitter world was shaken up by some NBA news, especially for Lakers and Rockets fans. Two important players basically swapped teams as Trevor Ariza verbally commited to the Houston Rockets and Ron Artest. Being a Lakers fan as well as a high school classmate of Trevor Ariza (Westchester stand up!!) I’m sad to see him and his relentless effort go elsewhere, however, with Ron Artest coming to join this already dangerous team it’s hard to stay to sad for too long.
With The Spurs, Magic, and Cavs making moves and Boston close to making a big addition, the Lakers have made their mark on the offseason. Next priority: resign Lamar Odom and Shannon Brown.
Can the season start already?!!!

Say what you want about Ron Artest but you can’t deny that right now he is the best in the league at soundbites. Justhearing/watching him try to explain is hilarious. While I believe what he says about the situation in game 2, he can’t help but come across as a bad kid trying to lie his way out of trouble by using a story that no one would possibly believe based on his prior offenses… and the childhood b-ball story, tragic as it sounds, the fact that he referenced it .
As funny as Rafer Alston slapping Eddie House was, House just set up himself for some broken ankles, or some more physicality…plain and simple.

Since his arrival into the league in 1996 alongside Kobe Bryant, I have never seen this kind of action from Fisher. As head of the players union, Derek has the reputation of a level headed figure who sets a positive example for those around him. That being said, he was setting an example, for his team that they must display a level of toughness and tenacity that isn’t expected of them. I will admit it was a cheap shot, but it’s a guarantee that with that play looping constantly during Sportscenter and during NBA highlight reels throughout the playoffs, softness is no longer one of the first things you associate the Lakers with.
Result: Derek Fisher suspended 1 game.
While I don’t hide the fact that I’m a Lakers supporter, I (as well as Kobe) admit that Ron Artest shouldn’t have been ejected as a result of this. I also don’t agree with the notion that Kobe should be suspended as a result of this play. This play by Kobe was nowhere near as deliberate as Fisher’s. While Kobe may have a history of allowing his arms to flail and smack opposing players in the face, this wasn’t intentional. Also, I don’t find fault in Artest addressing Kobe after it was clear that the refs would do nothing.
Result: Kobe Bryant later assessed a flagrant foul and fined.
This one one had the funniest reaction. Notice the “owww” by Eddie House by right after Rafer made his headband ripple. It was obvious that this was out of pure frustration. I wouldn’t be surprised if Skip to my Lou tried to put one of his And-1 streetball mones on House the next time their head to head.
Result: Rafer Alston suspended 1 game.

I didn’t catch this during the game last night, but I would have died with laughter if I did.
Millions of dollars and you cant buy a good set of teeth? Smh.

I left the house while this game was in the 3rd quarter so unfortunately I missed the most important quarter of them all! I also missed the jabbing and jawing back and forth between Kobe Bryant and Ron Artest. It appears Kobe got the better of the two as he dropped 37 points to lead the Lakers to a 102-96 victory against the Rockets.

So just a few hours after my Lakers gave it to the 2nd best team in the West. The 2 teams battling to be the 3rd best decided that they should turn the game into a physical one. Check out T-Mac fly to the ground when Shaq pushes him. Also, anyone else surprised that Ron Artest didn’t get involved?
Update: Rafer Alston and Matt Barnes have received two game suspensions while Steve Nash has been suspended for one game

So everybody and dey mama (I know! lol) thought Ron Artest was coming to La La Land to play with the Zen Master and Kobe/24/7 or atleast going back to his hometown of New York! Buuuuut the Rockets had other plans! Houston scooped up the sometimes-confusing-yet-brilliantly-talented player for what looks to be a steal. The Sacramento Kings received first round pick, Donte Greene, former King Bobby Jackson and a 2009 first round pick. Supposedly Artest is very happy with the trade because not only will he be reunited with his former coach, Rick Aldeman, he will also team up with T-Mac and Yao to create a problem. By problem, I mean all the troubles the trio will give the rest of the western conference! Can’t Wait! (to see the Lakers win! lol)
Do you think this trade will make the Rockets a lot better? Will T-Mac finally get over the hump? and who is the favorite right now to come out the West? Post a comment!
