Look Ron Artest should probably be in jail. He should have gone to jail after the Malice at the Palace. He’s clearly a fucking lunatic. Like downright insane. Capable of violence. He’s got alter egos and multiple personalities and he’s just not safe to be around. He just should not be allowed to walk amongst the general population of society. Last nite was just another shining example of how hes an unstable criminal.
But goddam it this dude is sticking to his guns about it being an accident. “Celebrated too hard.” Even got Pau Gasol in on the act with him. Not like I expect Artest or any athlete to be like “Yea I fucking tried to knock his head off,” but usually you get some sort of “I got caught up in the heat of the moment, I thought he was coming at me, I thought I was defending myself, I overreacted” blah blah. Something admitting what you did was wrong, but you’re sorry, etc etc. But nope. Artest is just sticking to the “My King Kong celebration went a little too far, James Harden’s medulla oblongata was just collateral damage.” “Not sure if he’ll ever hear out of that left ear ever again but I didn’t do anything.” Borderline Costanza behavior right here. Its not a lie, if you believe it, Metta World Peace.
