Should of changed it to Ron Artesticals.
Artest is one of the biggest idiots in the NBA.
Should change his name into: Mental Guy
The round table on First Take keep talking about it being a "distraction". WTF? That word is soooo over used. I bet you if you asked Kobe about it he'd say Ron can do what ever he want with his name as long as he keeps his committment on the court.
Newsflash media: It's only a "distraction" because your the only ones who will need to talk about it every damn day. Rodman's hair colors weren't distractions on the Bulls. Guys are pros and take care of their business on the court/field.
Bad mouthing your team on TV or through social networks is a distraction. Changing your own damm name is not a distraction. Stupid media.
Why are you a tool for changing your name? He's free to do whatever he wants. Stop hating, its sad and pathetic.
Artest is the dumbest player in NBA history no doubt.
Criticize the dude all you want, but the man changed his life around (with the exception of choking out purple drank last year lol), and you gotta give him props for that,
