The Los Angeles Lakers are clearly at a low point, though it is a relative low point compared to their usual brilliance, as they look to finish up the team's Grammy-influenced seven-game road trip with a fifth win in Cleveland on Wednesday. And though Phil Jackson was in no mood to talk to the media following what he termed an "embarrassing" loss to the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday, Ron Artest(notes) was his usual Artest-ian self following his 4 for 11 performance.
From KCAL 9:
And calling Charlotte Bobcats center Nazr Mohammed(notes) "37 or 36" years old, when he's actually 33? Or pointing out that Bobcats big Kwame Brown(notes) "never hit a jumper when he was with the Lakers?"
That's just Ron on a Monday. Smellin' sweet, tellin' it like it is.
