    Default Artest likely to end up in Denver

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Well this analyst from S.I. is claiming that Denver will more than likely end up with Ron Artest. My initial question is, where does he play? I mean Ron is physical and strong enough to match up with Power Forwards, but he really isnt a 4. Well actually that is just bitterness from him not being a Knick talking, Ron probably will do pretty well at the 4 spot, and should make Denver a better team. I think the writting on the wall that he was not coming to NY was when he started talking about not wanting to be traded anymore. I think he would still love to play for The Knicks, but playing with AI and Melo may calm that somewhat. Maybe this is a 3 team trade that sends Zach to Denver and Ron to NY?....not likely though. Well atleast Kidd appears to be leaving the Division

    I don't think Ron Artest will go to Denver. The Kings obviously are trying to get some cap room, and the only person I see Denver offering them is Kenyon Martin(who makes a lot of money).I guess the Kings could also include Kenny Thomas, to balance it out, but I doubt it.

    I read in hoops hype that the mix of Artest with AI, Melo, and J.R. Smith would be a bad idea. They said they don't want to turn into the Pacers. Too many bad attitudes in one team is not good. There has to be a balance. Team chemistry is essential in the playoffs.

    I agree. I like Ron Artest's balanced, multi-dimensional game, but he's always getting into trouble. If you look at Artest's games played, you'd think he's always injured, but in reality it's that he's always getting suspended, arrested, or thrown out of games for picking up technicals.If he stayed out of trouble, he would easily be one of the top 5 best small forwards, but he's always messing it up by getting into trouble.

    I dont consider any of the above players to have bad attitudes. I think Artest and Iverson use to, but Iverson has clearly grown up, how long can people hold his opinions on practice and other things that happened before that against him? Anyone who still has any problems with AI is a bitch ass hater. This is the same guy who plays every game like its his last and is still one of the best/most entertaining players in the league.

    Besides punchin Mardy Collins, what the f*ck did Carmello ever do? He seems like hes dedicated to staying out of trouble, being a positive example for young fans, and winning at least to me.

    Artest never had a bad attitude on the court, his problems are off the court, but who judges the players by what they do off the court? I cant deny ARtest says some questionable things but the only thing that counts as that he does his job on the court. When hes playing, hes intense, hes a leader, hes everything the Knicks need: offense, defense, and toughness. I dont know how the Nuggets would play him but im sure they would find a way. Has Artest gottin into any trouble this year? No, not since last year when I think he had problems with his wife or somethin.

    **** Hoops Hype

    key word hype, i dont give a f*ck about the hype im all about the facts, real talk.

    The Kings want Linas Kleiza included in the Denver deal for Artest. Denver isn't trying to give up Kleiza. Talks should continue until the deadline. If Denver is smart they'd go for Mike Miller before Indy gets to him. My bet, the Knicks will get a PG or wont make a trade at all. Look for a quiet Luke Ridnour trade.
