Artest : “Kobe Is Making Me a Better Player”

Ron Artest had some really cool stuff to say about Kobe Bryant. As Ron becomes a “better player,” my goodness, he scarier this team becomes for the league.

L.A. Times: “Kobe gets up for everybody. He’s actually making me a better player,” Artest said. “I feel like I’m better now than I was ever. He’s just always going for blood. And I learned that now. That’s what I’ve been doing now when I’m out there.”

    • http://LakersNation Marwan

      How about you leave again. We dont want you and your rants.

  • Robert

    This is getting ridiculous. Who are these people? I think they’re all the same person using different aliases.
    Anyway, to stay on topic – everyone gets better playing w/Kobe. LeBron and Carmelo both got ‘better’ after they played alongside Kobe in the 2008 Olympics. Ron-Ron gets to work with Kobe day in and day out, so he’s gonna be a monster. Can’t wait to whup the Celdicks (assuming they get to the finals, which is not necessarily a sure bet).

  • lakerman1

    Man the language on this site is atrocious i am going to look for a more dignified blog. Some of you people have deep issues which goes beyond hatred. I guess TLN could care less as long as they get posters.

    • Robert

      Agreed. If you check out the “Horry” thread, you’ll see post after post of garbage. It’s getting more difficult to pore through all this garbage. Any recomm’s for a better blog, before I check into it myself?

    • NBAmazingkb24

      I agree
      most of the posts has nothing to do with the article or the game.
      If you are Lakers hater
      Why come in to this site and put so much effort into it?
      Coming here to talk down on the Lakers because they played a horrible game or lost to the team you guys are cheering for… Thats okay
      Every sports are like that
      But coming in here talking crap that has nothing to do
      with the game? Thats seriously stupid.
      The Lakers Nation Crew…
      You guys need to do a better job keeping this site more in order. Track their IP? forbid them from coming to the site? Because languages they use are ridiculous. Low class act. This is just garbage

      • FERN DOG

        Hey amazingkb24 maybe your right but there are alot of bitches in this site that talk alot of shit.I dont think that the site is fucked its smartkobe that keeps talking shit and uses different names to talk shit all the time.Hommie you can feel or not but that this fool needs to get the fuck out.

    • Short Dog

      I retaliated on some people that hide behind a computer. I’m not all that but i will get down with anybody that disrespects and that is whats goingon. Ive been in this site for years. Im not new. read before you talk.

  • SD Anthony

    I am not so much discouraged by the language as I am from the lack of any redeeming quality in our local gene pool.

  • Robert

    Agree, SD Anthony. A bunch of viruses have invaded this site (or, maybe just one stupid 15 year old kid who’s just messing around).

    • http://LakersNation Marwan

      What is the big deal with someone using your name and writing something stupid. People know its not you because no one in their right mind would admit to being gay on the internet or admit to doing some stupid thing. Its just…. common sense.

      I agree with you Robert. I used to come on this site and read new Lakers articles and express my opinions on them, as do others, but now everytime I come to this site, I see people swearing and just spamming the comments and talk nonsense.

      • Smartkobe

        That is the way I feel. Short dog has been using my name saying alot of things that are obviously untrue. He is an idiot. He things this site is like a gang and that he is the leader. What a waste he is.

        • FERN DOG

          Smartkobe dont be a little bitch you know that you are useing my name and shortdogs to talk stupid shit.You are just a fake ass fan that changes his name like a little bitch.So what is your real name is ir smartkobe or stupidkobe because to me your nothing but a punk bitch get the hell out of hear and stopuseing my name and shortdogs name too little fag.

          • Smartkobe

            You have alot of people that hate you and your foul mouthed brother Short Dog. I have more important things in my life than deal with two whiney little brothers stroking each other on this website. Go find your other enemies and quit making me your scapegoat idiot.

        • Short Dog

          Stupidkobe. You started this shit now finish it. I gave you my address punk because you wanted it. Dont be a bitch. Or should i say stop being a bitch.
