    Default "You can expect Ron Artest to be in camp with the Pacers next season."

    Direct quote from Mr. David Stern himself, and not the guy who uses that handle on RATS. He said that Ron has done everything that the league asked him to do and that he was in good standing with the league.

    Sounds like to me that the Pacers asked for a 4th time for his reinstatement and this time it was a success.

    We all already knew that Ron would be reinstated for next season. It didnt suprise me at all at what Stern said.

    .....this wasn't the plan since day 1 of his suspension?

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I do beleive Stern said he would have to be "reinstated", meaning Stern could say yes or no.

    Maybe that was filing of paperwork, maybe that was just the league saying he has gone to counseling or the likes.

    Since86, where did you hear that?
    Stern just said it on ESPN.

    Plans don't come with guaruntees.......

    He never said that he would be back next season, only that he hoped he would be back. Now he's saying he is back.
