    I'd like to hear a recap at least. Any bone thrown to the out-of-towners would be awesome.

    I guess he's live in the studio. They are making a big deal out of it. Shockingly before they could get to how hot it was today (like it's never been 93 degrees before) They had a preview of the interview

    I thought Artest came across pretty well in this interview. There was no real new ground broken that I recall but he seemed to be fairly well grounded.

    Thank you, Hicks. I appreciate you getting that up very quick for everyone that isn't in Indiana, including myself.

    As far as the interview, I thought it was pretty good. There were a few comments that I really liked (such as him saying that Larry is a businessman and would trade him instantly if he is not a top 5 player in the league, etc.). I really am not too thrilled about Ron promoting his music again, but he could be doing worse things.

    Also, I liked seeing the summer league footage. Now if I could only find Edwards vs. Bogut

    I liked the part when he said that Pacer's wins will come before anything else. He said if he had to take a punch in the face and eat it, then so be it. He sounds like he has his priorities straight. I am glad to see him back on the court. I think 2006 is our year!

    I would have been happier had he not said he should have been MVP two years ago.

    Thanks Hicks!

    This was Artest's best interview yet, IMO. Very nice.

    Im as big of an Artest fan can be,But doesnt it seem like he has had someone in his ear telling him "listen you better say this".

    He seems like a robot in interviews.Like he has read a script of what to say before he goes on,and he kinda strugles to remember what to say.

    I do think partially he's saying what he knows people want to hear, because I mean come on... if those same questions were asked to him last year do you think he would have said he would go in to the stands and punch fans if a bear was thrown on him?

    That said, I would be surprised if something even remotley like that happens again.

    About the robot thing, I've noticed that too, but I just think he's a bad public speaker.

    In his ESPN interview he said "but at the same time" about 200 times.

    Thank you Mr. Hicks. This is why PD rules the roost. Also, Hicks did you get implicated in Rovegate or something? Why the new secret agent ID?

    ron is not very comfortable being interviewed in front of the camera....he definitely struggles with verbalizing his thoughts....the fact that many (some on here) are just chomping at the bit to take something he says and make an issue out of it doesnt help matters....but that comes with the territory....magic johnson isnt the most well spoken person either....it happens

    No but with Magic you can tell he just isnt good with public interviews.

    But with Artest you can tell he had some PR guy in his ear telling him "If they ask you this,say this". "If they say this,you reply with this".

    You're correct. It seems this way because he HAS hired a PR firm to help him with post-brawl damage control. It was a place out of Tennessee, if I recall correctly.

    They were given credit for Ron avoiding all public appearances after the post-brawl interviews. Those were awful. No remorse, plugs of his CD, complete ignorance of what he should do or what he should say.

    He was right to hire them.

    Exactly,thats what Im saying so when all the people on here are saying "oh he just doesnt speak well in public"..yes part of that is true,but Id say its like this 70% of what he says is what some PR person told him to say.And about 30% of the rest of what he says is the "real" ron.

    Like when Ron says "ill always be hood"....that is not PR related.

    When Ron was on Donny Deutch and said "My wonderful teammates"...that was PR related.
