Free Ron Artest!
The day of the 2005 NBA All-Star Game, Ron Artest—the league's best defensive player, the guy who would be in Denver playing in the all-star game right now if he hadn't gone charging into the stands after a fan who threw a beer at him, inciting the now infamous Brawl—is at home in Indianapolis, baking a cake.

"It's an ice cream cake," says Ron Artest.
He pads over to the oven in socks with holes in them to check on his creation. "You never had an ice cream cake? See, first you make this..." He proudly shows me the empty box from the Pillsbury Moist Supreme Lemon cake mix that he whipped up this morning. "Then you put this..." Lined up on the counter is an array of cans: cream-cheese frosting, raspberry spread, pineapple spread, vanilla frosting. "This all goes in the middle, with the ice cream. I got strawberry ice cream, but then I put extra strawberries in it. Here, I'll show you." He opens the freezer door to show me the mashed-up ice cream he made, in a tinfoil pan. "Then you put the other cake on top, and more vanilla frosting, until you make it look real nice, and then we're done."
Is this a...recipe?
"Um, I guessed it." He smiles shyly. "This past Valentine's Day, for my wife, I just guessed it. Usually, every holiday or on birthdays, we get an ice cream cake from Baskin-Robbins." But then he figured, Why spend all that money at Baskin-Robbins? (Things are a little tight this year, what with the $5 million he lost from getting suspended for the season.) "So I just tried to make it. And everybody said they liked it. They asked me to make it again, so I said okay." He giggles. "I hope you like it."
