I love Artest's last line in bold here. I believe him, too:
Update: Artest (back) was moving so well at Saturday's practice, that Kings coach Eric Musselman said it was "the best he's ever looked, since the first of training camp," the Sacramento Bee reports.
Recommendation: Just two days ago, Artest was saying the back was 75 to 80 percent, but he's feeling much better as the Kings prepare to face the Hawks on Sunday. "I feel I'm back to normal," Artest said. "It's been about three weeks (with the back problems), almost a month, where I couldn't practice a lot, couldn't stay in game shape. Now I get a chance to play at 100 percent, like I can play. A lot of teams are going to have a lot of problems now."
