Ron Artest Provided Every Lakers Fan Two Tickets To The Gun Show Last Night

And it was good. During the third overtime of the marathon matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns last night, Ron Artest threw down a pretty nice dunk which gave the Lakers a 135-132 lead with less than two minutes remaining. The Lakers held on to win the game by the score of 139-137, Kobe Bryant scored 42 points, but what everybody is talking about today was Artest’s impromptu celebration after his impressive dunk: he flexed and kissed both his biceps. Nice.

But I suppose that’s just Artest Being Artest. And as The Basketball Jones points out, it was only the fourth dunk by Artest all season, so there’s that.  I guess a person has to take advantage of rare opportunities whenever they happen to be presented, especially when you’re as crazy – and apparently, love your biceps as much – as one Mr. Ron Artest. Good for him.
