Ron Artest is pure crazy. One of my favorite anecdotes ever about an NBA player is that, after his rookie season with the Bulls, Ron Artest took an off season job at Circuit City so he could get the discount. So the fact that he attracted a female that crazy isn’t all that surprising.
In 2002,Ron Artest’s girlfriend (who was five years older than him, and the mother of two of his children) admitted to smacking Artest around.
That happened right around the same time Ron was accused of stalking a different woman and leaving her threatening messages.
It was about two years before he started the brawl at the Palace of Auburn Hills, though… and about three years before he was suspended by the Indiana Pacers because he asked for a month of vacation time to promote a R&B album he was producing. Man I love Ron Artest.
Basketball never got so interesting.
Get well soon,Wetangula.
