A look under the 2009 Lakers Christmas tree

Lakers Examiner: For last year’s holiday season, we figured out which Los Angeles Lakers were naughty and which ones were nice, and gave them gifts accordingly. This year, however, it’s been pretty difficult to spot a Laker that hasn’t been nice (with the possible exception of Sasha Vujacic), so we’re just going to skip that step.

The Lakers’ Christmas tree in the Staples Center locker room is covered in gifts from all over, and I was lucky enough to sneak a peek at some of the presents. Here is a list of what I saw:

To: Ron Artest

From: Mike from MTV’s Jersey Shore

Gift: The loquacious, self-proclaimed “Guido” from the hit MTV show was kind enough to give Artest the thing that means most to him: his nickname, “The Situation.” It makes sense given the similarities between the two. They’re both from New York, they both get into trouble when they drink alcohol, they both are “ripped up like Rambo” when it comes to the abdominal region, and they both are capable of exploding at any moment. So there you have it; RonRon will henceforth be known as “The Situation.” Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

Side note: I didn’t know Artest was in Mike’s league physically until I recently saw him on the cover of Fitness RX Magazine…goodness.

To: Shannon Brown

From: David Stern

Gift: After much lobbying, including a personalized website, LetShannonDunk.com, David Stern has succumbed to the will of the people (at least in L.A.) and agreed to “let Shannon dunk” in the contest this February. No word on whether the super-athletic Brown will make John Ireland‘s suggestion of dunking over all three Kardashian sisters come to fruition, but it should be entertaining nonetheless.
