Good for Ron. He's been working hard to keep himself under control the last couple of years.

Just as he is talking about people he doesn't know like Artest. No matter what you think you don't know these people.


Artest does much good work with kids and has his own kids.

This is great news and great PR for the image of what used to be one of the leagues most notorious players.
