Remembering Ron Artest and Preparing For World Peace

ARTEST RELEASES RAP SONG

After winning the 2010 NBA Championship in seven games against the Boston Celtics, Artest wrote a rap song called “Champions.”

The song begins like this:

Moment of silence for the champions
For those who make goin’ hard a lifestyle
Never waver
Nothing, gotta get it right now
I’m in the spotlight
When they turn the lights down
Only a champ swings the hardest in the 12th round

ARTEST VS LEBRON

Yet again, Artest does not back down. Ron Ron gets into it with LeBron James in this clip from Christmas of 2010. The Lakers had earned a reputation as a team that wasn’t very tough, but Artest proved to be an enforcer for L.A.

ARTEST VS BAREA

Does it surprise you that the last notable memory that Laker fans will have of Ron Artest is this moment that occurred with 24.4 seconds in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals. The frustration of the team was evident through the actions of Artest, who “clothes-lined” J.J. Barea as the Mavericks inbounded the ball.

ARTEST, “THE SHOW

All-in-all, Artest is about grabbing the attention. In this clip, Artest follows a Shannon Brown reverse dunk with one of his own.
