Phil Jackson on Life With Ron-Ron

It’ll be an adventure, to say the least: “Ron Artest has wanted to be a Laker for years and finally told Phil Jackson about how he could help the team after last season’s Game 6 loss in the Finals. He was so eager, in fact, Artest approached Jackson in the locker room shower…That awkward meeting could be the first of many unsettling moments between the sometimes volatile player and Zen-like coach. Jackson didn’t sound too sure about dealing with Artest on a daily basis. ‘He’s an unknown. He’s a player that even I think his own teams don’t know exactly what he’s going to do that particular night,’ Jackson said.”

    Ron is hilariously quirky. Hahaha he’s awesome! He wouldn’t have been a Laker this year, though, if Mac and Yao were healthy. Bet.
