And the story is a really good read:

Giving Wade that award was total bull****.  Ron Artest got ripped off big time.

He'll have his chance to pay Wade back when the Heat and Kings play each other tomorrow night.  Well ... assuming that Artest is back from his sprained vagina by then.

Artest is gonna slap Wade silly and make the riot at the Palace at Auburn Hills look like a boy scouts meeting.

This stat line is for you Ron-Ron (and you too, Dressel):

32 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists, 3 steals, 2 blocked shots

But the most important number?  Points scored in overtime:

Wade - 7
Kings - 6

Yeah but Artest came off the bench with the strained back and I saw Dwyane Wade cheating his ass off the whole night as usual.

What about the stat line of Wade's blatant slap on Bibby driving the lane for game winning shot. Superstars like Wade don't receive foul calls on final plays even if everyone in the arena hears the the arm slap foul ::).

Anyway the Kings suck now...Jury's still out on their new coach too, I wonder if Adelman could've have his team win these last 3 crushers Spurs, Magic and now Heat >:(

Care to comment on how he was "cheating his ass off the whole night", and how, in your sick and delusional NBA world, that seems to be a regular occurrence?

Don't be bitter.  Artest D'd Wade up rather well on a few occasions, and the Heat almost gave the game away at the end.  Regardless of who won, the last few minutes of both regulation and OT were ugly.  What was even uglier was that I stayed awake until about 1:30 AM EST to watch the game.  My ass is draggin' today.

And I'll agree that Wade hit Bibby's off-arm, but the refs are only going to blow the whistle in that situation if you behead someone.  Which, like I've always said, is the main reason that NBA officials suck.  They lack in consistency.  There were A LOT of terrible calls last night, on both sides of the ball.

Thanks for recognizing that Neal and lemme just say this..though I'm a Kings fan
They just suck lately and I'm not thrilled about it either..They should play better so the game doesn't come down to final plays..especially at home anyway. Their stat line of 0-3 in close games as of late is crappy.

You know, I think ole Mitch Richmond should come out of the cellar and those these punks how to get it done! >:( ;)

Hey just wondering which of you other NBA fans have ordered the official Ron Artest jersey from www.sacramentokings.com yet.  I'm sure at least half of you have, just looking for some feedback before I put my order in.

Thanks in advance.

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."
