    Default Ron Artest: Stern's Little Whipping Boy

    I know that it's been months since the incident that shook the Pacer's franchise, but I can't help my incessant fuming. I understand that the NBA wants it's credibility back, but isn't this a little extreme?

    Ron Artest's agressive nature is what made him who he is in the NBA! His strong, forceful ways are what made him 2003-04 defensive player of the year. In addition, Ron Artest is what would have made the Pacers a strong championship contender.

    If people don't believe me, look at last years record!!! Amazing!!! Granted we were knocked off by the Pistons, but hey, I think thats what brought Reggie back.Sure, this has been talked to death, But I can't help it.

    I think that we should start a bring ron back petition, it probably won't help, but at least we can say we did something!

    By the way..... Another Question, would u have changed what happened even if u knew that that would mean Reggie wouldn't be scoring and playing as well as he has been?

    oh Another one... What would you do if it was Hitler who threw the cup?

    His aggressive nature makes him a lot of things.

    well its not as if you ever DO anything about it.......

    And nothing I said related to 11/19 in any way, unless every ron artest topic is 11/19 by default.

    This is, without a doubt, the funniest post I've ever read on here. The Hitler line is classic.

    Apologies to 8.9; but if you've been reading PD for a while, you know this has been talked about to death, so you might not get many replies. I won't hijack it anymore than I already have.

    Because it's a basketball discussion site. This has been covered in depth, just start reading the archives.

    It'll give you something to do, instead of starting 5 threads in 3 hours.

    See, yeah I would do that, but I have the attention span of a 5 year old, and I guess obviously the maturity of one too! Also I'm a speed reader and I do read the archives, but I'm soooooooo self centerd that I have to reply back to my own threads every 5 min. ok?!

    and wait a second, how did all these people get thousands of postings without making threads???

    Damn!

    I posted again!just shoot me now, before i rot your mind with my idiocy!

    I actually just pretend to.

    You'd be a decent enough guy if you weren't so wishy-washy.

    Uh - I know! I know!

    I'd replace all references to killing six million people directly and starting the events that killed another twenty million and substitute "cup-thrower" for "sadistic psychotic megalomaniacal mass-murderer" in all the history books.

    Isn't that right???

    I just HATE coming into these deep intellectual discussions late.

    Oh - and I'd jump in my time machine and go back to smother baby Hitler. I struggle whether to do this over killing 25 million people but how could I not for throwing a cup?
