Video: Ron Artest ‘Explains’ His Concussion

by Marcel Mutoni / @marcel_mutoni

When the Lakers signed Ron-Ron this past summer, the question wasn’t if some craziness would follow suit; it was simply a matter of how much. And well, at this point, we can safely say that Artest has delivered his fair share.

The latest, of course, has to do with his mysterious fall on Christmas. According to initial reports, he fell down a flight of stairs while carrying boxes into his house … or something.

Last night, Ron-Ron met with the press corps at Staples Center and gave his first-person account of the accident.

NBA.com has the video:

Simply amazing.

We’ve learned absolutely nothing from his “explanation”; in fact, I’m left more confused and with more questions about the whole thing than before.

Thanks as always, Ron. Catch you at the next incident.

    Ron being Ron…I can’t understand S€%t from this…Just a bunch of words.

    hahaha…love how wifey tries to jog artest’s memory w/ a low blow…”you lost by 20!”

  • Sarah

    I love how you have to use the word “explains” lightly when it follows the subject, Ron Artest.

    Being that i’m at work, I can’t listen to the video. However, i’m sure it went something similiar to this:
    Reporter: “Ron, can you please explain your fall at your house and what exactly happened?”
    Ron: “QUEENSBRIDGE!!! Hey man, you know, something happened at my house and i’m glad to be back at practice. What did I miss?”
    Reporter: “That didn’t really explain how you fell with a box and got a concussion, Ron. Could you give us further details?”
    Ron: “No box takes Ron Artest out. You know, this is just a big misunderstanding. I was actually just putting the finishing touches on a Christmas album. I need everyone to check out my new artist, White Mamba!”
    Reporter: “So you are saying the rumors about you drinking and falling at your house aren’t true?”
    Ron: “WHHAATT?!? Awwwww, hell naw. Man I was tore the hell up on Christmas, man! You know how we do it! Queensbridge, stand up!”
    Reporter: “Thanks Ron.”

    Watch how much he twitches and fidgets when ‘explaining’ what happened. Not buying it.

  • Jose

    Ahhh of course….It all makes Less sense now.haha

  • Chris

    LOL Ron-Ron got his azz beat in a bar fight! By the way, he texted Kobe and Lamar and Jordan and Shannon, but none of his white teammates or white coaches? Why don’t he just leave the Lakers and find a team with all black players and a black coach, for crying out out?

    Haha, almost as sketchy as Ben Wallace’s explaination for his 16 stiches on his arm.
    “I was umm…playing football in my backyard and I went to catch the ball and went through the window of a rental pick up truck.”
    Oh okay, did you at least make the catch

    Wait, so he says “I got some staples in the back of my head and some stiches in THE OTHER ONE”?? What “other head” do you have Ron Ron? Oh, never mind. That must have been some party!
