Did you guys see Ron Artest’s interview in the locker room last night after he got ejected and Houston lost to the Lakers? Seriously, take a few minutes to listen to the man pontificate (HT: ballhype.com):
Yes, this is what Ron said in the second interview: “The broke a piece of leg from a table, and threw it; it went right through his heart and he died. Right on the court.” And yes, that did happen:
A 19-year-old basketball player from Queens was fatally stabbed with a broken-off table leg today after a fight broke out during a basketball tournament, the police said.
The player, Lloyd Newton, was stabbed in the back with a leg from the scorer’s table at the championship game of a Y.M.C.A.-sponsored tournament at the Niagara Falls Boys and Girls Club, the police in Niagara Falls said.
I am hoping that Ron’s conversation with Kobe (which you can see in the first video above) was the equivalent of Samuel L.’s “Say what again! (link NSFW)” proclamation for the series.
