Ron Artest Would Have Been A Grizzly, If Not For In-N-Out Burger

The NBA rescinded technical fouls on Blake Griffin and Ron Artest from the very end of the Clippers' Sunday win over the Lakers. Ron Artest is glad, because according to quotes in the Los Angeles Times, it means Ron-Ron can now use that tech money a few thousand double-doubles.
Artest was apparently hungry to get back the $4,000 he would have forfeited had his ejection not been overturned.
"I could've bought 10,000 In-N-Out Burgers," he said. "I rather would've done that than give it away. I'm going to get 10 burgers [after Monday's game]. I love In-N-Out. It's addicting. It's the only reason I'm here in L.A. If it wasn't for In-N-Out Burger, I probably would've gone to Memphis or something."
Thisclose, Memphis. You could have had an All-World defender and quote machine if only you'd convince the company to expand to Tennessee.
Speaking of Artest, FanHouse's Sam Amick has a wonderful look into the budding rivalry between Ron-Ron and Kevin Durant.
