Is it too early for a Grand Theft Auto joke?

Shoot, how about Dance Dance Revolution: NBA Edition?

Maybe he is in the new G-Unit game? I heard he almost signed some type of deal with them.

Yup. Supposedly its going to be a basketball game and then when you get into a situation that might bright about a fight, the players will be taken to a boxing ring and you can duke it out there instead of on the court.
P.S. doesnt the guy on the far left in that video game pic look like Scot Pollard (sometimes)?

I'll keep you posted, but just because he mentioned the idea for it existing, that doesnt necessarily mean that it will really come out and be able to be purchased by the masses for video game systems. It just means that the idea exists.

Ron reminds me of the guy from Office Space that got into the accident and created the "Jump to a Conclusion" mat. I can't wait for his next product release.

You know, its really sad.

I know Ronnie is just trying to make some money, but he just doesnt get it.

I would say someone is giving him really bad business advice, but he has fired all of his agents and business advisors.

I guess he feels like they were doing nothing but making money off of him. Sadly he doesnt realize the benefit these types of people can have, esp. when it comes to PR. They might even be able to make life a little easier for Pacers media relation people...
He fired his people last year but since the brawl he got a new PR company, TriStar. They are based in Tennessee.

I thought this couldn't be serious... You guys were just having some fun. I'm still not convinced somebody wasn't having some fun but I finally followed a link (since nobody gave us the text)....

According to MTv.com: Ron Artest Battles In Basketball/Boxing Game

Indiana Pacer Ron Artest is fresh off his suspension for going up in the stands and trading punches with fans in November 2004. Allowed to compete in the NBA again, the Queensbridge, New York, native is ready to fight.

Now hold up one second,

NBA Commissioner David Stern — save your fines and suspensions. Ron Ron (his nickname from the 'Bridge) is starring in his own as-yet-untitled video game where he gets to take his court frustrations out in the squared circle.

"It's boxing and basketball; it's crazy," Artest explained recently in New York. "If you wanna get into a little scuffle, but you can't fight 'cause you might get suspended, you go to the boxing ring. And it's not any NBA players, its 'hood legends. The 'hood be fighting with each other. After you knock somebody, you go back and play."

Artest, who is currently training for his next season with the Indiana Pacers, didn't have a release date for his game yet, but he said early 2006 is when he's going to show the world what he's been doing with his salary besides paying fines and donating money to kids. He's funded his own album, New York, on his own label, Tru Warier Records.

Ron Artest Battles In Basketball/Boxing Game, Funds His Own Rap LP

Indiana Pacer Ron Artest is fresh off his suspension for going up in the stands and trading punches with fans in November 2004. Allowed to compete in the NBA again, the Queensbridge, New York, native is ready to fight.

Now hold up one second,

NBA Commissioner David Stern — save your fines and suspensions. Ron Ron (his nickname from the 'Bridge) is starring in his own as-yet-untitled video game where he gets to take his court frustrations out in the squared circle.

"It's boxing and basketball; it's crazy," Artest explained recently in New York. "If you wanna get into a little scuffle, but you can't fight 'cause you might get suspended, you go to the boxing ring. And it's not any NBA players, its 'hood legends. The 'hood be fighting with each other. After you knock somebody, you go back and play."

Artest, who is currently training for his next season with the Indiana Pacers, didn't have a release date for his game yet, but he said early 2006 is when he's going to show the world what he's been doing with his salary besides paying fines and donating money to kids. He's funded his own album, New York, on his own label, Tru Warier Records.

"It comes out January 31. It's predicted to sell at least five million records worldwide," he joked.

While he probably has a better chance of dethroning Shaquille O'Neal as beast of the Eastern Conference than of selling more records than the Diesel, Artest has a whole team of all-stars in the studio with him.

"Mike Jones is on the record, Big Pokey from Houston, 112, Nas, Havoc," he said, giving the album's roll call. "Prodigy, Nature. The album is crazy. It's called New York cause I'm just reppin', keeping it simple. The first single is the one with Mike Jones called 'Get Low.' It's a 'hood 'Rocky' type joint. It's gonna get you amped up, get you ready to throw a couple of punches. I got another called 'Oh Yeah.' I got tracks for the ladies, for old people. I got tracks for [Latino] people. And you know I got tracks for the 'hood.

"It's crazy," Artest continued. "I got records people not gonna like. It's controversial. Some people don't like me when I rap. They say I shouldn't rap, but I'm gonna spit some bars. My songs is gonna be crazy and blend in right with the industry, and they not gonna like that."

Ron says although he's going to be keeping it "get-toe" on his LP, the record is clean and definitely won't cause the backlash Allen Iverson did a few years ago when he was going to release a rap record (see "Misunderstood Allen Iverson Skips Hip-Hop For Hoops").

"Nothing like A.I's music," he insisted. "But A.I. is my man. I love him to death."

Artest and the Pacers open their season on November 2 against the Orlando Magic.

I wonder if it will have an NBA lisense and if they will show commericals on NBA TV.

The game will not depict the NBA and its players....it will have local legends playing in a streetball-type environment, *supposedly*.

The NBA will separate itself as far as possible from this game.

I have to assume Ron Artest is not broke and therefore he should separate himself as far as possible from this game as well. This is a terrible move for someone in Ron's position.

I can only hope that Artest was pulling somebody's leg (figuratively speaking of course).
