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.”

Ron Artest Acts Like a Big Boy

During Sunday’s  Lakers/Rockets game last night Houston’s Trevor Ariza’s shoe came off on the court, showing his sportsmanship, Artest picks it up and tosses it off the court. The next possession down the floor, still without his shoe on, Ariza left Artest unguarded for a wide-open 3. Classy.

Ron Artest Blows My Mind

When I think of Ron Artest, I don’t think compassionate social humanitarian, more often I think of his many misdeeds on and off the basketball court. So to counter that image, here is a totally bizarre and weird rap video from Ron Artest for the women of Afghanistan. There simply aren’t words to describe this. Also, don’t adjust your screen, the video is silent for the first 30 seconds.

Never Let Go Ron, Never Let Go

NBA pain-in-the-ass Ron Artest is a man of diverse talents and interests; for instance, here he is at a random Filipno families home singing My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion. While I have ZERO idea how this came about, I do enjoy it. My only complaint is that the girl who can actually really sing (unlike Artest who has a rap album he released in 2006) we never see. Also at no point was anyone knocked out by a punch Artest threw…

Ron Artest is a Man of Fine Musical Taste

017026690From the post-game press conference after game 6, here is Ron Artest talking about some of the best new music out there:

Five dollar footlong is one of the best songs, that’s a hot song. You’ve got the freecreditreport.com, and then five dollar footlong comes on. When five dollar footlong comes on, they should play that in the club. They should play all those in the club.

Considering that Artest has his own music “career,” he MUST know what he’s talking about; they just don’t let ANYONE record an album.

Ron, you will NOT be DJing my next party.
