Ron-Ron’s Sales Pitch

The newest Laker is doing his part to keep Lamar Odom in SoCal: “Now that he’s a Laker, Queensbridge product Ron Artest is lobbying for the defending NBA champs. The former St. John’s star says he has reached out to fellow Queens star Lamar Odom, who has yet to re-sign with L.A. and turned down a four-year, $36 million offer. And Artest thinks their home-borough connection will do the trick. ‘I hope that helps,’ said Artest, who drew a crowd as he made an impromptu appearance with the Queensbridge team in the Hoops in the Sun tournament at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Saturday. ‘I hope he comes back to play with us. I already reached out to him and will (again).”‘

    Don’t stay Lamar. That Lakers lineup will implode sometime in June next year.

    I find it amazing that Ron still plays blacktop hoops. A summer or two ago, he was EVERYWHERE in the NY area.

    Surely playing with Ron Artest is more of a reason not to come back rather than a reason to come back

    Ron Ron was awesomely well behaved for the rockets last season….i dont know why you think there is a time bomb waiting here….
    Ron ron has the stage to be noticed, the coach who can contain him…and the SOB leader in Kobe that this guy would respect…. bring back Lamar because this would be a gorgeous team to watch next season?!?!

  • Big Kobe Fan

    i agree with dacre
