Ron Artest is a man of his word.
Ron-Ron vowed to get a Von Wafer-like mohawk if the Rockets won a first-round series and, sure enough, the Houston forward showed up in Los Angeles with a rise of hair down the middle and a little extra twist to boot — hairoglyphics!
"I just got a little mohawk, a little 'Von Hawk' with a little splash of Rockets," Artest told the Houston Chronicle. "I thought it would be fun. When I first was traded, I put the Rockets' logo on it. Everybody liked it, so I did it again. I kept my word with Von. I didn't renege."
Ron Artest, a Euchre partner you can count on.
