Ron Artest Really, Really Loves In-N-Out Burgers

by January 18, 2011

Artest jokingly (I think) tells the media in LA that he’s only playing in that town because of the awesome selection of hamburgers. The Times reports: “On Monday, the league retracted the technical fouls assessed to Ron Artest and Clippers forward Blake Griffin in the final seconds of Sunday’s 99-92 Clippers victory. Last week, it was Andrew Bynum and his infamous ‘Are you serious?’ set of technical fouls, one of which was erased by the NBA the following day. Artest was apparently hungry to get back the $4,000 he would have forfeited had his ejection not been overturned. ‘I could’ve bought 10,000 In-N-Out Burgers,’ he said. ‘I rather would’ve done that than give it away. I’m going to get 10 burgers [after Monday’s game]. I love In-N-Out. It’s addicting. It’s the only reason I’m here in L.A. If it wasn’t for In-N-Out Burger, I probably would’ve gone to Memphis or something.'”
