Ron Artest Scouting Report: A small forward with extremely versatile offensive skills, and widely known as one of the best defensive players in the game. Strong enough to handle the most rugged of forwards. Quick enough to defend star shooting guards and small forwards. Can make open outside shots. Muscles defenders down low... Head issues. Loses temper sometimes in dramatic fashion... Considered a bit crazy.... More coming soon.
