Ron Artest Liked to Drink Hennessy During Games


Lakers forward Ron Artest is a wacky dude, whether it’s appearing in just his boxers for an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, his “rap career” or charging wildly into the stands fists blazing, you never know what’s next from him. Case in point, he recently revealed to an interviewer that when he entered the league as a Chicago Bull he regularly drank alcohol during halftime of his games.

“I used to drink Hennessy … at halftime,” Artest said in an interview with The Sporting News. “I [kept it] in my locker. I’d just walk to the liquor store and get it.”

Artest’s hard-partying ways started well before college, “When I was a 19-year-old father, whew. I was a single pimp! I was wild. A lot of marijuana and alcohol—even before (that age). … I (still) party and I have fun, but not like I used to. I used to drink every night and party every night.”

Supposedly settled down now, Artest still can be bristly when it comes to discussing the events that led to his brawl in the stands, especially in regards to then-Piston Ben Wallace, “I see Ben, I’m on my guard now. I’m always in the mood to fight him. … I’ll get suspended 10 games, 15 games (because) I’ll just fight him right there. It won’t go into the stands.”
