Last year was Laker small forward Ron Artest's first year on the Lakers, and his first year running the triangle offense. It is a very tough offense, and it took Ron a while to pick up on it. He seemed like he was firing away many threes and missing most of them.
This year Ron Artest knows the offense a lot better, and I think he will be a lot more comfortable from possession to possession. He has shown he can hit the three at times, but what the Lakers should a probably will do is post up Ron so he can use his strength to get easy buckets. A more comfortable Artest makes a more productive Laker team. Oh yeah, and Ron should still be the lock up defender he his, all year long, just ask Kevin Durant.
