ARE YOU CRAZY?
What's crazy? You need to decide. On Twitter you could say I'm pretty crazy, or you could say I just have a weird sense of humor. Off the court you could say I'm pretty crazy, or you could say I'm just ghetto. On the court you could say I'm pretty crazy, or you could say I just play really hard. To each person, I could be a different person. So you need to decide. Of course, there have been times when I've done crazy things. But I don't think I'm crazy. I just grew up in a crazy world.

NOW THAT YOU'VE WON A TITLE, DO YOU STILL HAVE ANY PERSONAL GOALS IN THE NBA?
I would love to get back to first-team All-Defense. I own defense. It's like my corporation. I'm the CEO and everyone else is just an employee. The fans and players know I belong. When you need a stop, who you going to call? Not the goddamn Ghostbusters, I'll tell you that. You call me.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KOBE?
I thought you'd never ask. We'll be on the plane, playing cards. Kobe will walk up, stop the game and say, "Ron, come to the back of the plane." Then, he'll show me some tape and say, "Look at this. Here's what you need to do." I'll go back to my seat, and then he'll walk up to Shannon Brown, stop the card game and do the same thing. And it doesn't matter if you're sleeping. He'll wake you up and show you things you've never thought about. He puts so much time and passion into the game. I have no problem following somebody who's worth being followed, who works as hard as me. I will follow Kobe anywhere.

WILL IT BE A LAKERS-HEAT FINALS?
Don't sleep on Boston, but I like Miami in the East. It would be an honor to face the Heat. I'll take LeBron. Kobe's on Wade. Gasol's got Bosh. It'll come down to Andrew Bynum. If he's healthy, we can't be stopped.

there's much more btw. good read through and through.

I agree with what he said about Bynum at the end but him staying healthy is a big if.

Also I never get the Kobe hate. Its hearing about stuff like this that makes me like him and Im not a Lakers fan by any means.

Man I love Artest. If not for the brawl he used to be one of my fav players of all time. I still love him and wish he had played for NYK at some point and he wanted to but timing was never right. Great NYC baller.

The cool part about it was his interview with Spencer Hawes. Ron-Ron being Ron-Ron I guess.

I really like Ron, he's a very fun person to have on your team when he's not being a distraction. I hope he makes good on his defensive talk next year.

DO YOU STILL WANT TO PLAY FOR TEAM USA?I want a gold medal so bad, I'd be the water boy. But they won't even let me try out! I've been trying to get on that team forever. Three years ago, I called Jerry Colangelo. He answered the phone. I said, "Hi, this is Ron Artest," and the dude hung up! At least let me try out. Give me a chance to represent the ghettos of America. Come on, Team USA! I don't have much time left.

lol.

Like what he said. Kobe on Wade is equal. LeBron is > than Ron but Ron is one of the best 1 on 1 defenders in the league. Gasol vs. Bosh is equal. A healthy Bynum > Ilgauskas or Joel Anthony or Juwan Howard or whoever the Heat wanna through out at center. Fisher/Blake >Chalmers and Odom/Barnes ***** on Mike Miller and the old hags.

Does he need his psychiatrist again since he's probably talking to himself again?

The defending champ, on a team that has repeated and been to 3 finals in a row without a healthy Bynum isn't supposed to say "we can't be stopped if Bynum is healthy" ? :eyebrow:

Ron Artest majored in math? Man, didn't see that one coming.

Then again, I never see what Ron throws coming.

Pau Gasol is better than Bosh.

And most people would say Kobe is better than Wade.
