    Arrow Do you hate Ron Artest?

    I keep seeing this silly, overused phrase again and again on here, so let's have it. Who actually hates Ron Artest?

    Love the guy. Always have, always will. Suppose I have an expensive pair of Ronnie glasses.

    Like most people would actually admit that. Ok, granted some will, but some would just deny that and say they love him as a players, etc, etc and then the "BUT" kicks in. I guess the "real Ron haters" would trade him for a portion of non-french fries , while the otherones with the "BUT" are more genuinely worried, which I can relate a bit too, just not enough to get rid of Ron Artest now.

    Anyway, count me in on the "I don't mind him, and think he should remain a Pacer" though I'm very close to "Hell no I love him".

    I'm tired of the re-hashed, polarized "I'm wrong, no you are!" stuff that leads to BS, including labeling people as "haters" and "worshipers". That's all BS to me. I wanted to see if anyone claims to actually REALLY hate this guy.

    He's never done anything to me or my family. Seems like a nice guy.

    Same goes for everyone else in the NBA. There may be a few I don't care for but I don't hate anyone.

    Honestly, I can't see how you can compare Ron to Mike Tyson and say that you only dislike his actions. You called listing their actions "over-the-top," but even you listed their personality characteristics. To me that means you have a problem with his qualities, which are the reasons for his actions.

    With that said I dislike Mike Tyson as a person as much as I possibly can, without him doing anything personal to me, because he is psycho.

    Here's something that may be hard for some people to grasp:

    If Donnie and Larry decide to trade Ron, it won't be because they hate him. They'll do it because they think it's best for the team.

    We have two "haters" now. Either one have the guts to speak up?

    I love him as a player but he has issues with himself that he should work out and prioritize ahead of the NBA. I say this because I've had similar anger-issues like him and it wasn't until I focused on fixing my issues that I could truly go back to living a "normal" life.

    I feel sorry for him, I really do because he seems like a great guy.

    And in case someone asks, no I didn't vote for "hate".

    Can you add "I tolerate him cuz we can't get any a better SF for his price" as a choice?

    There should be a category called

    He is both my favorite Pacer and the one I hate the most from minute to minute.

    How about I say I hate his decision making skills when he is under emotional duress

    Hell no! Ron is our only chance at a title! He is the MVP of this league and if he was a PF would be the best in the L. Duncan and KG would not be able to stop him!

    Love Him. Nobody can match the defensive intensity on this man IMO.

    Plus, He's Nuts. I like that.

    He truly is the key to our championship. I cannot say that I have complete and total faith in the guy that he won't go nuts like he has in the past (NOBODY CAN). However (which is different than the word "but"), I love our chances with him on the floor.

    I don't care for Ron the Indiana Pacer, and I don't want him on the team.

    I have no reason to hate Ron the person though.
