Default Re: BREAKING NEWS: Artest expect to sign with the Lakers (3 yr/18 mil)

I like this deal a lot.

I'd rather pay Artest MLE than pay Ariza anything more than MLE.

Ariza was fantastic and a great roleplayer...He was asking for too much though. You can argue that if we had Artest we wouldn't need 2 big steals...we were leading both times anyway I believe.

Artest is a much superior overall player and his on-ball defense will really help this team.

Did we just go from one of the softest to one of the toughest teams in 1 year? wowza...
