From the game last night appears these two have bonded. They just looked like they really enjoyed playing together. Ronnie had a GREAT game and looked better than ever. His shot especially, was looking fantastic.

If we can get Jermaine to gel with these guys, we will be a serious force.

I'm not sure who originally thought of this, but I think I buy the theory that says Jax is the link between Ron and JO. Jax is very important to this team, much more important that he's given credit for most the time IMO.

Lots of people said it before Jax is going to bring Ron and JO together, he is the perfect teammate.

Indeed, Artest seems like more of a team player as of late.

Maybe a year on the bench did him good :) .

I liked what I've seen the last two games ...

I think we should get a patent on the "we ride together" thing.;)

It has to be in clear view of all parties before you can call it. Or is does that only count for shotgun :whoknows:

Their chemistry is great. I hope everyone else can find a way to channel in to the energy they both play with.

"Next, I was pondering the relationship between Jermaine and Artest. Despite what Jay will tell you, I've never believed they were chummy. I do believe that they respect each other. We've heard before, though, that Artest felt alienated his first while here, especially after Brad Miller left. Jermaine, Al, and Bender are good friends and have admitted that, at times, they were a bit "clique-ish." With Al gone and Bender (hopefully) going, that group is broken up. That's the pre-point rambling; here's the beef. I've said before that Jax could be a good "bridge" between JO and Ron. I think Dale could be the same kind of player: a guy that both Ron and Jermaine like and respect. We can discuss this more if people would like."

I dont see why we feel like we have to have one leader. We just need to play as a team. All this talk about Jermaine being a leader would **** me off I was ron, because Ron is so much better than JO. Simple as that.

I was just giving you a hard time. I think SJax has played a roll in what we have heard as the improving relationship between the two.

On another topic: Ron Artest is not a leader. A leader does not promote himself over the team or get upset that someone else is percieved as the leader (I don't know if in fact he is). If I were Ron's teammate I'd accept him back in but would have no respect for him as a leader. I wish Ron came back with a little more humility and kept his head down a little bit more instead of going on every interview that calls him.

No i dont think artest is a leader type. But I don't think Jermaine is either.

But we will see how it all pans out. I think the idea of a leader is overrated, Pistons dont necessarily have one...
