The Odyssey of The TruWarrier

The Lakers, along with Artest, stand a mere three victories away from striking championship gold. It’s all Artest has ever wanted and the reason he came to LA. There were haters, there were doubters, but they will all be put to rest once the Celtics are sent back into mediocrity, where they’re destined to reside for the rest of their days.

It has been quite the journey for Artest, and I’m sure it would make a hell of a book. From watching a guy get stabbed to death with a table leg over a pick up game, to drinking Hennessy during half times, to brawling with NBA fans in Detroit(!), to being a key-cog for a NBA Champion? Truly fascinating.

Everybody has a place they want to get to. Some just take longer to get there. It’s those people, though, that end up appreciating the journey (and the result) that much more.

Ron Artest has found himself a home in Los Angeles, and really, that’s all I think he ever wanted. I think peace has finally found him.

Welcome home, TruWarrier. You’re among family now.
