yes I do, what about you mr stud? :laughing:

No I don't. I'm just curious how you find time to post on TLN. Shouldn't you be spending every single minute of every day dedicating your life to work?

I know this is Los Angeles and Hollywood, but I'm honestly sick and [expletive]ing tired of all of these shows. If this is all done in the off-season, then so be it; I still think that these players would be better suited working on their game (i.e. ANY way to make Artest's offensive game less horrible), but I guess it is their free time...But even though Odom's show was taped during the season, and not the playoffs, I think anything similar to that should not be allowed in the future. We don't know what happened to our team last year, but we need to minimize these stupid distractions.

This.
However dancing may help his agility, foot speed and maybe his lift. And since he barely had any foot speed last season this may be a good work out.
All I'm saying is that Ron doing DWTS in comparrison to filming rap videos while drinking XO is a step in the better direction.

of course not don't be silly stud, posting on TLN only takes a few minutes :laughing: , If I cared about my work enough I would spend "most" of my time taking care of business and that goes for anyone with any job, how do I know if someone spends most of their time doing work? Well I dont, I'm not by Rons side 24/7 I dont know what he spends most of his time doing, but by watching him play and reading his tweets :laughing: you get a good sense of that.

Stud, open your eyes man, Ron Artest had a bad season, have you thought about why? :hmm: here's a wild idea, and this is totally hypothetical now, what if he spent more time going to clubs, partying, recording music videos/songs, reality shows and etc.. then practicing on his game!?!? :o I know I know its a bit of a stretch but its possible ;)

As of now, the players are out of a job, that gives them a chance to do what they want, if Ron Artest wants to be on Dancing With The Stars he has the right to do so, call me crazy but I think if I were him I wouldn't spend anytime doing something that's non basketball related, he already did that during the regular season :huh:

Ariza bailed on us. He wanted a larger role and a bigger paycheck, and he wasn't patient when making his decision.

But, you know that.


bull he gets paid the same as artest, Mitch negotiated for a day then cut tides, artest was thought to be better

Well, provided the fact that I was following the situation closely with a couple of guys that cover basketball (Alex Kennedy being one), I'm pretty sure I know more about it than you do. Mitch didn't cut TIES, it was Ariza that wanted the bigger role and bigger bucks. He was under the impression he was going to get the money, also, and he was willing to wait for it.

The Lakers weren't going to wait, and it was Ariza's agent that told us Trev was done in LA. We listened, found Ron, and it was Trevor who ended up with less money, struggling with a larger role on the offensive end, and probably wishing he was back in Lakerland.

I need artest to do TWO things, defend and make OPEN shots and to be quite honest with you, he does none of them well, especially defending.

thats not how i remembered it, he asked for more money, we took a day negotiating, we called artest and he took less money, undercut ariza. But at the same time, we took 2 whole months negotiating a contract with Lamar, that paid him above the mid level. So why would we take 2 months negotiating with Lamar and a day negotiating with Trevor... because Mitch thought artest who was going to turn 30 wasnt washed up.

But what does he do when he comes to LA... refuses to stay out of the news, while not working on his jumper. You know what it does to the offense when they can just leave artest open in the corner? It forces teams to double down in the paint and clogs the lane for Kobe.

Wow talk about twisting the facts lol Trevor was the first person Mitch called and his agent and said go find the highest offer you can find around the league and we will match it, Ariza's agent bluffed that somebody offered $9 mil, Mitch called it bluff and moved on to find Artest (Who at that time was better than Ariza) for the same amount they would've ofered Ariza. Turns out Mitch was right, there was no team that offered Trev the 9 million per year and he ended up signing up for the MLE which everyone thought he's actually worth.

Artest was rock solid in his 1st year with the Lakers, he was brought here to play defense, our overall team D and 3FG% defense improved because of him. He hit lots of timely shots in the Utah and Phoenix series and made Durant's life hell in the 1st round. We wouldn't have won Game 7 of the Finals if he didn't hit his 3s and didn't lock up Pierce.

To some extent I agree that he hasn't focused on basketball especially over the last year but there's no doubt in my mind he played a huge part in winning the 2010 championship

And as for negotiating with Lamar...we needed to take the time, he isn't easily replaceable especially considering Glass Knees Bynum is always hurt we needed an insurance policy and turns out Lamar became one of the highest paid bench players in the league.

Per Kevin Ding from the OC Register, Ron will be on Dancing With The Stars

http://lakers.ocregister.com/2011/08/29/ron-artest-lined-u-to-dance-vs-rob-kardashian/57889/

Even if it appears Ron Artest doesn’t want to discovered in the accompanying photo from celebuzz.com of new cast members heading to “Dancing with the Stars” rehearsals Sunday, the Lakers-colored shoes and Ball’N brand of shorts (his sneaker brand from last season) are good indicators.

The full list of celebrities to be announced Monday night, according to the DWTSGossip Twitter account, will include Lamar Odom’s brother-in-law Rob Kardashian to compete against the soon-to-be Metta WorldPeace.
The full list of others: Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavallari, Ricki Lake, Chynna Phillips, Hope Solis, Elizabetta Canalis, David Arquette, Ryan O’Neal, JR Martinez and Chaz Bono.

Odom’s loyalties will be torn as he watches the show. Rob Kardashian is Odom’s and Khloe Kardashian’s housemate now (and co-star on “Khloe & Lamar” on E! network), but Artest and Odom go way back to Queens and their youth besides being Lakers teammates now during the NBA lockout.
Artest previously said: “I play defense, but I don’t know if I can dance.” The show’s 13th season debuts with a two-hour Sept. 19 premiere on ABC

Do you think Ariza shuts down Kevin Durant in 1st round series? KD was the best scorer in the game that year by the way
Do you think Ariza locks up Paul Pierce for most of the NBA Finals especially Game 7?

2009 playoff run for Ariza...11.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.7 Turnovers 50% FG 48% 3FG
2010 playoff run for Artest 11.2 points, 4.0 rebounds 2.1 assists 1.1 turnovers 40% FG, 30% 3 FG

they both essentially have the same numbers but Artest played much superior D.

Heck in the recent playoff series vs each other Ron nearly out played, Ariza has higher stats only because he played more minutes while Ron played less because of Blowouts in Game 2 and Game 6

Ariza 40 minutes per game, 15.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists 41% FG 33% 3FG
Artest 33 minutes per game, 11.8 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 50% FG, 40% 3 FG
