The back story on this is pretty interesting. According to several people in the Houston Rockets organization Ron Ron would often show up on the team bus with nothing on except his boxers. The funny thing is sometimes executives or VIPs the team are trying to impress would be allowed to ride the team bus. Imagine their shock when Artest would show up with less clothes on than Beyonce has had on in any of her last 40 videos.
This is not to be confused with the story of Artest sneaking into the Lakers shower after they lost to the Celtics to console a nude Kobe Bryant. He does address that with Kimmel.
The interview is pretty good. I am sure the ladies liked it in the audience.
I have a saying:
“Normal is boring”
I like Ron Artest in all his peculiar ways. He maybe a little crazy, but that is what makes him interesting.
People remember interesting people. It is the reason Dennis Rodman name still comes up. Not saying Artest will be dressing up in a wedding gown if he goes on Letterman but you never know.
My people within the Lakers organization says he hasn’t been a problem at all and has done whatever Phil Jackson has asked him to do.
From the interview you can tell he is happy to be LA and a happy Artest could be the key to another Lakers’ championship.
Here is the interview in it’s entirety. Try to keep your shirt on ladies.
