Artest: “I would’ve hurt Kobe way more than he hurt me”

Looks like Ron Artest is still talking about the elbow. And he talks about if he was the one throwing the elbow what things would be like. Are we under your skin Artest?

WTOP: “If that was me throwing the elbow at Kobe, first of all, I would’ve hurt Kobe way more than he hurt me,” said Artest, who scored 25 points in Game 2.

“I probably would’ve knocked him out with the same force he used against me. That’s why I’m not going to throw an elbow at somebody’s head. It’s dangerous. That goes to show me, that if Kobe hits me with an elbow, I can just get hit.”

    Ron Ron is an IDIOT! The only thing that he knows to do is to throw in the towel! This guy’s a mental midget! He makes Garnett look like a genius, and Garnett couldn’t even score high enough on the SATs to get into college! Come to think of it… they’re both IDIOTS!

    That’s right, I take every opportunity to say crap about any Celd!ck player!

    Go Lakers!


    Artest talks tough when the opponent is a smaller individual, but when someone his size dares him to bring it-(As Ben Wallace did), he keeps his filthy trap shut, scared fishless, and goes after the drunken shrimp in the stands! …Only Leaderfish can be slipperier than he!

    Ron Ron spewing out more crap. Crap like those three’s he was tossing up tonight. Enjoy the one win you guys had you’re not getting another one. We’re putting this one away in 5.

    Artest is losing, ejected once again.
    The guy is losing completely. I just said yesterday that he would be eject. I am just surprise it was this early.
    I will say again, he will be eject once more and maybe suspended a game. The dude is a psycho and he is getting out of control.
