“He potentially could be a really good player,” Artest said. “I think he got to go to school a little bit more. He’s got to work on that IQ a little bit. He got to watch more tape. I don’t think he watches tape. I think he plays video games. I do. I don’t think he watches tape. I think he plays video games and I think he could possibly have an Atari. He should upgrade to a Play Station.”

Atari? He’s that out of date?

“Possibly Atari,” Artest said. “He could potentially become a force, if, if he wants to. But if he doesn’t, he can continue to play Atari.”

Ron....I think you may need to go back and take a few English courses yourself.

Well, first off i would like to point out that Ron should educate himself too. IF you read his interviews, it becomes pretty clear that he is rather unintelligent.

Secondly, his right about McGee. Javale has all the physical tools, the length, the athleticism. The only physical attribute he lacks is muscle. He needs to bulk up a bit.
But his basketball IQ is really non-existent. The solution for the Wizards would be that they hire a mentor to teach the game. Ewing and Olajuwon come to mind as they have done it before.

You might have a point... but, even in below average grammar, Artest has one too...

You know what, Artest was a math major at St. Johns... that's crazy if you think about it. Math is crazy hard in University, I'm just terrible at it. I think we're wrong to call people unintelligent just because they lack proper verbal skills. I agree with you haha, some of his interviews make you scratch your head, but I don't think that reverts back to intelligence.

Lamar sums it up best,


While praising McGee for his incredible athleticism, Odom also provided a rather astute assessment of McGee, noting that he still needs to develop a better feel for the game "because the game is called basketball, not run and jump." * *

he is actually correct. javale could become a top 5 big man. He is very athletic, fairly strong (could bulk up a little bit), and has length. He is also very young which is good, but he is missing that maturity/intelligence. Here are two similar clips. In the first one he foolishly tries to be flashy instead of passing it to a teammate or avoiding the charge. The second one he is just stupid. He couldve had a nice powerful dunk a little more in, but instead he tries to jump from the FT line. Overall, if the wizards want to trade him (:rolleyes:) they wont have to look any further than the heat in the southeast division lol

I don't think he meant school school I think he means like bball school. he says he has no IQ doesn't watch tape. he doesn't want McGee to go back to school he wants him to go to BBall school like spend some time and learn that athleticism only gets you so far in this league.

He's obviously talking about mcgee's basketball iq ...and that he needs to educate and "upgrade" his "playing" to the nba level

..lol so i guess that makes ron ron a metaphorical genius

it's true. The guy has all the tools but he's a ****ing idiot. Pretty weird for Ron to criticize like this though because he was as bad as Javale Mcgee (attitude was) AND SOME. This is coming for somebody that beat the holy **** out of a fan.

I hate when people say this because I guarantee he knows more about basketball than 90% of people in this thread.

I think people make a big mistake today equating education w/ intelligence. THere are a lot of intelligent people that don't have college or even high school degrees. FOr example, one cann tell just by listening to him that Randy Moss is intelligent but doesn't have the college degree.

ron ron just tries to sound so "hood" too often. dont think it has anything to do with his intelligence. then again i could be wrong. but with ron its all about his "hood" and queensbridge. this coming from a laker fan. he does say some dumb funny **** tho. minus the brawl at the palace, i think people would see he is just a big kid, and does funny things to stay loose with all the pressure he faces everyday. you take out that one "mistake" and i think most would agree

hes not trying to sound so hood thats just who he is. he rose up from the queensbridge housing projects to the nba and became a star thats like a 1 in a million chance and he made it. hes just a fun flamboyant guy, im from queens and Ron is the only 1 really reppin for queens i love the guy and a lot of people just dont understand what hes saying or trying to say. keep doin your thing ron

Good things he's not playing against us.

I dont think anyone cares how he stacks up against any of our basketball IQ's, so I'll just keep comparing his IQ to that of other NBA players.

Ron's right, Mcgee is pretty raw, he needs to work on a few post moves or he'll be a 7 foot version of Gerald Green.

He should be measured against other professionals in his area and not against fans such as ourselves. In that regard, his basketball IQ is indeed non-existent.
