    Default RATS thread........



    Has anyone actually heard this?

    "Pistons beat writer Chris McCoskey (Detroit News) just reported on AM 1130 that after last nights after the game (11:30pm) a black Escalade came speeding into the loading dock right next to the Pistons bus.

    Who gets out of the SUV? None other than Special Ron...Artest gets out, walks over to the Bus, looks at the bus and proceeds to rip of his shirt-flexed at the bus and walks into the the loading dock area. McCoskey even stated that he was wearing "short shorts" ala Jon Stockton."

    Well if that is somehow true (doubtful), it would be the most hilarious image I could ever think of.







    And proof that he belongs in a health institute.

    Ron drives a beat up older SUV not an Escalade. As least thats what has been reported. I doubt that durring his suspension he went on a car buying spree.

    If he did it as a prank, then I'm fine with it. A send off to the Pistons reminding them that next year they won't have it so good.

    OMG, this is real????

    I'm speechless. I'd be willing to say that if that was true there is no way Bird or Walsh will have him back. Hell Stern may not let him back.

    LOL......

    Sorry, but if it is true, which I HIGHLY doubt, they wouldn't let him back because he flexes?

    Sorry, but that's a little crazy........

    I just read that whole thread over there. Not sure if it's true or not.

    Until I know and know the details, I'm not going on the deep end.

    beat writers dont ride on the bus so he heard it second hand

    No, showing up and ripping off your shirt, flexing your muscles and posing infront of the world champs at 11:30 at night after they beat us is crazy.

    Clearly the man needs serious help. If it is true then I believe he has learned nothing from this and I in no way want to see him in a Pacer uniform ever again.

    Actually, if he didn't learn anything he would of stormed onto their bus and tried fighting, or started hitting the bus.

    Sounds like he was dressed, if it actually happened, to workout and it was sending the Pistons a message that they better enjoy it this year because next year he's going to be a beast.

    But I've been listening to ESPN radio for the past hour and they've talked about Indy with no mention fo it.

    If this happend, it would have been on other stations not just a Detroit station, they are just probably trying to make Ron look bad.

    Oh c'mon now. How, if this is true, can you justify this???? These guys are supposed to professionals. How can we love Reggie in one thread and then love this in another. If Rasheed Wallace did this to the Pacer bus, then what?

    Justify it? Oh man......

    If that needs justifying, then I hope the government does use satelites and watch me at home. I'd have to go infront of Congress why I flex in front of my full length mirrors.

    You need to relax. All, IF it's true which the longer it goes unreported seems like it's a hoax, he did was FLEX. No banging his head into a trash can screaming that he's gonna kill everyone. No turning green like the REAL hulk. No pounding on his chest.

    If flexing qualifies someone as crazy, and emotionaly unstable then I'm in a world of trouble.

    I'm still waiting for any confirmation on this. Does anyone have an update? Is it real, partially real? Or is it a malicious lie?

    I guess we are just not going to see this eye to eye, mostly cause you are looking at this from a "what harm did it do" aspect. Which is not even remotely why I would find this disturbing. The problem is that, if true, Artest is acting like some stupid teenager or younger. He does not have the mental stablity or maturity to handle professional basketball. Oh by the way, lets leave the smart *** comments at home shall we. Cause obviously I think flexing is a federal crime.

    Beyond that, it is just amazing at what this guy can do and not be held accountable for by people on this board. I'm not saying this is true, but if it is then those who think it is acceptable should just come out and say the Ron Artest can do no wrong.

    Reggie Miller retired last night, I'm just hoping he didn't take the Pacer's professionalism with him.

    Just a WILD guess, but wouldnt ESPN be all over this if it was true...........
    Yes, I agree, and thats why I'm going to assume that only a partial truth exists and was twisted to bash Artest.

    Artest probably just showed up to practice, walked in shirtless, and the Pistons probably saw him from a distance. This would lead the beat writer to say that he was showing off his muscles to the Pistons when most likely Artest didn't even see the bus.

    Ron was probably visiting at Disneyworld with his kids at the time of the fracas.

    Oh wait, that was something else.

    What were we saying about ESPN's cred again?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    In all honesty they do not need to make Artest look bad, he does enough of that himself.
