Ron Artest’s Post-Game 5 Workout

TMZ with yet further proof that Ron-Ron is one of the greatest characters in NBA history. I particularly love that he worked out in the same shirt from the post-game interview: “Right after he hit the winning shot in last night’s Game 5 NBA Playoff Game — Los Angeles Lakers hero Ron Artest didn’t head straight for the party scene …. instead, dude went straight to the gym!!! After finishing up some post-game interviews, Ron rolled over to a gym right near the Staples Center  around 10:30 PM PST — and banged out a couple of sets of legs and abs.”

    Was ShinShin there?

  • Hedo Turkeyglu

    Say, “Queens Bridge”

  • Fat Lever

    Still not as cool a story as applying for a job at Circuit City when he was a rookie with the Bulls, but not bad.

    @Fat Lever: haha, is that true? i’ve never heard that before.

    If ron artest asks you to say “queensbridge”, you say “queensbridge”. Then sh!t your pants.

    Was ShinShin his spotter?

    Dude doesn’t need to work on his abs and legs. Try working on your shot, Ron. Or at least the mental capacity to not fire TWO ill-advised three’s in a span of 3 seconds in the waning moments of the game.
    Thanks, Ron.

    @JE that’s a true story dude. Ron’s one of a kind.

    @JE: apparently, Ron wanted the employee discount on a stereo, so he applied for a job at the store. he filled out an application, and listed jerry krause (bulls GM) as one of his references. Krause found out when the Radio Shack manager (who apparently had no idea who Ron was) called Krause to talk about Ron. great story.

    letsmotor – i’m surprised krause didn’t try for a sign and trade… ron artest for a washing machine…? it’s semi pro all over again…. oh and is it just me, or does artest sound exactly like dennis rodman?

    we all know he hoisted up some bad shots, but it seems he realized his mistake and did everything he could to redeem himself plus he got a bit lucky by having the ball come right at him, (although his rebounding positioning was excellent).

    As much as id prefer other teams winning the title, id be so happy for ron if la won

  • http://slamonline.com tealish

    @RON- he lost the game for them, and then won it back.

  • Roc

    Thanks for posting, I got a kick out of this. Ron rocks! :) ))

    Haha I’d be surprised if he didn’t stop by the practice court to practice his early-in-the-shot-clock three pointer.

  • clos1881

    Early in the shot clock late in the shot clock all you want is a good shot he was wide open if it was fisher would it have been a problem

  • underdog

    Ron Ron is awsome.

    Artest is needed, we didn’t bring Artest in to shoot, we brought him in to play DEFENSE.
