I KNOW WHY Ron Artest went oops upside his head, say oops upside his head. Pay attention now.
I know it's old news but I have had this swirling in my head for two months it seems. In Portland I haven't been able to discuss this Laker information with anyone and have a productive conversation about it because we all hate the Lakers in PDX. But I think I've found my safe zone. I am brand new to SB Nation and like you I am instantly addicted. I have found my bliss...my happy cave.
Finally a place to get some knowledgeable feedback.
I feel like nobody except me, WMP, Serge Ibaka, and whom ever else they both told know what I know. Did you see it too? Did you see what made Ron Ron so angry that he felt compelled to throw a elbow hammer through Harden's head?
I saw what made him so mad. It was in plain sight for everyone to see yet no one witnessed it. But I saw it. In fact I turned to my girlfriend and said "oh hell naw there is no way that crazy fool Ron Artest is going to let that **** slide!" and she didn't say a word back because she knows nothing about hoop and was online watching "16 and Pregnant" with her ear buds in. I followed up by telling her "There is going to be payback and someone is going through the floor today. I feel sorry for someone."
So here is what happened:
The day game at the Staples Center where Metta showed no peace and dropped a world class elbow upside the bearded one's dome was on national television. Early In the second quarter Serge Ibaka and WMP locked horns going for a rebound. As they released from the tangle Ibaka quickly out of the corner of his eye looked Artest in the face and came down with a fierce forearm shiver across the bridge of Ron Ron's nose. Ibaka tried to disguise it as an accident. It was so smooth the announcers said it was an accident and never questioned the intent. But as a former player and coach I know for a fact the intent was purposeful. So did WMP!
Metta is a savage so he didn't fall down, scream, show agony or his anger. He stood in place a few moments grabbing his face, walked over and grabbed a towel under the backboard, and waited out the pain like the true tough guy that he is. He then knocked down two free throws and continued to play.
It was right then that I knew it was going to be WW3 in the Staples Center. The rest is history.
