Looks like Ron is ready to D-up and lead us, defensively, to victory!
L.A. Times: Ron Artest will receive the defensive assignments of LeBron James and Paul Pierce on the Lakers’ eight-game road trip.
Artest was asked if he thinks of guarding those players as a challenge.
“Not really, because I had those assignments since I was first in the NBA,” he said. “That’s a normal day of work. It’s nothing new, nothing new to get excited about. I get excited for everything.
“Me and Paul, we’ve had tons of battles over there in the East when I was on Indiana [Pacers] — even me and LeBron when I was on Indiana. When I left for the West Coast, I kind of think both of those guys were kind of happy to see me go.”
