23 year old Ron Artest (formerly Metta World Peace and now Metta Sandiford-Artest) shoots 10 for 16 for the field, grabs 6 boards, dishes 4 assists, and makes life unpleasant for his opponents, the Memphis Grizzlies. Announcers are not big fans of Artest’s, I must say. Almost every time he did something it went unnoticed by the Memphis telecast.
Artest was t’ed up for “hanging too long on the rim” in an atrociously officiated game, costing money out of his pocket after sprinting as fast as he could to the rim on the fast break.
