 MTV News | Ron Artest Battles In Basketball/Boxing Game, Funds His Own Rap LP
Ron Ron (his nickname from the 'Bridge) is starring in his own as-yet-untitled video game where he gets to take his court frustrations out in the squared circle.
Artest, who is currently training for his next season with the Indiana Pacers, didn't have a release date for his game yet, but he said early 2006 is when he's going to show the world what he's been doing with his salary besides paying fines and donating money to kids.
Ron says although he's going to be keeping it "get-toe" on his LP, the record is clean and definitely won't cause the backlash Allen Iverson did a few years ago when he was going to release a rap record (see "Misunderstood Allen Iverson Skips Hip-Hop For Hoops").

But it was Artest's behavior that thrust him into a select hall of infamy, alongside basketball's Latrell Sprewell, who choked his coach, P.J. Carlesimo, seven years ago, and Todd Bertuzzi, the NHL player who is awaiting trial on assault charges stemming from an on-ice sucker punch last season.

Artest (.800 on the year) has asked to be traded from the Indiana Pacers, and team CEO Donnie Walsh has stated that he will oblige.

Up until this season, Ron had been voted an All-Star, NBA Defensive Player of the Year, and been suspended seven times, once for smashing a television on the court that was talking shit to him during the game.
