i do think this makes them better but the people who are acting like ron isnt a nut are just as nutty as ron.

someone here OBVIOUSLY doesnt frequent the Clutch BBS forums. those rocket fanatics have been lobbying for Artest for as long as i can remember

Rockets fans 'over there'' aren't all jumping around with excitment, and of course some of the more intelligent ones realise the baggage that Artest brings along.

yeah thats probably it. unfortunately the respectable rockets posters like fatboy, ElPigto, ClutchCity and others aren't here and the rockets fans who are here are giving the team a poor representation.

I'm not doing too badly am I?

You mean brantonli24? I don't think so though, I just lurk there and rarely gave my own opinion on Artest there.

Okay, yeah, Yao was joking. We all know that. But it wasn't a bright idea on his part. Ron Ron doesn't strike me as a guy you could joke about/with like that without him taking it the wrong, you know what I mean?

Everyone's blaming the media, and they are to blame partly (but it is their job to do stuff like this), but this whole thing could have been avoided if Yao would have just let that joke pass. It was a poor decision on his part and now we see why.

yeah, I think it was pretty obvious that he was making light of the situation. as far as irresponsible journalism, whatever. he didnt edit the meaning in thequote or take it out of context. if people didnt realize that he was joking thats on them.


but behind every joke is a kernel of truth.

how was it out of context? he has the entire quote surrounding this statement. its not like the headline was some sensationalist "Yao worries for the safety of fans at the Toyota Center with the arrival of chemistry killer, failed rapper, and known dog abuser Ron Artest". Now that would be some bad journalism

He better get used to it? Are you serious?

Ron Artest doesn't get used to stuff. Stuff gets used to him. That's how it works....
