Ron Artest: ‘I Can’t Really Understand the Triangle Offense’

You get the feeling that Ron Artest is trying to act “extra-crazy” during this interview, but he does reveal one truth about himself: he has no idea what’s he doing offensively. From ESPN: “The shootaround is over, but, sure enough, Artest is shooting 3s. He’s hot. He’s making four out of every five. A very good 3-point shooter, he has hit about a third of them in his career, yet he rarely takes them in games now, and when he does, they always seem to be from the corner. ‘See, I can’t really understand the Triangle [offense],’ he admits. ‘There’s 1,000 plays in the Triangle. It’s such a challenge. I get so frustrated about it, I have to call my psychiatrist. So I just stay in my one spot in the corner. If I leave my spot, I get yelled at. Phil’s gonna say, ‘What are you doing over there?!?’ So I just don’t move.’”

    what? the Seed without his patent tri-exclamated booking of the upper-case it? Wishes do come true! Ok, so he found a new, albeit equally redundant path to annoyance, but still…

    Ron is smarter than you think

    Oh man.. I hate the lakers but Love Ron-Ron. Especially when he broke down his version of the malace at the palace on the great wall of china. Who else can let you type that?

    He should go to MIA and then Dwade and Co will be unstoppable.

  • hiphopcop

    Please, you miami clowns are still searching huh? You better hope we don’t cherry pick some players from you guys, oh, that’s right! You don’t really have that much to take from.

    the triangle offense is easy…PASS 2 KOBE!!!

    When in doubt pass to Kobe or Pau.

  • unrel

    if he’s for real.. he should just watch some old tapes phil’s SFs.. but keep a player lock on rick fox (since he’s played with kobe and a solid big down low).. as opposed to watching pippen with the bulls…

    well considering the small forward in the triangle offense is not the same thing as the small forward in the starting lineup that wouldn’t be a good idea. (fe – MJ played the 3 in the triangle).

  • unrel

    that’s why he should watch the guys that played with kobe and shaq..

  • Hammer

    Even jordan admitted that it took him yrs 2 fully comprehend it. And this is artest’s 2nd yr under the offense,so I wouldn’t say he’s lying. But could we just go 1 day w/out hearing and dissecting every blurb that comes out of his mouth. We all know “He’s crrraaaazy. Derrraaaanged”

  • The Philosopher

    As I’ve said before, Ron Artest is the biggest clown in The History of The NBA.

    @unrel gotcha my bad, misread your comment.
