    Boston had no chance of getting Ron. He stated he always wanted to be a Laker, not a celtic, and he wanted to shove the words down pierce's throat ("Im the best player in the world") lmao.

    Well he beat him up physically, won a championship, and put pierce in the Hall of Shame when he trudged off Staples without congratulating the Lakers. (just like LBJ)

    Ron wanted to become part of Laker lore, he made it!

    kb24rules,

    Artest did nothing about shoving words...stop the internet warrior comments. What did paul avg in the finals?. he was one of his team leaders in ppg. So did artest really dominate??..NOPE....
    IN 08 phil didnt congradulate doc for the celtics title...kobe wanted to run off like a ferry. but kg caught him and kobe was crying like a baby.
    Just remember kobe is not better than mike..MIKE is 6 for 6. Kobe hasnt lost 1 but 2 finals.....remember that.
    PS: just for good measure boston 17 rings
    lakers 16
    so are you going to bring up the internet or change the year the NBA started or what..IMFAO

    I agree with you.  The Celtics definitely needed Rasheed or someone similar last year.

    Artest game is a joke

    hits a lucky shot and kisses the crowd

    overrated defender as well

    It sickens me to hear ANY Celtic fan promote his name and game

    Ariza would have been the better MLE signing to Sheed and Artest, Sheed would have gone to Orlando or SA, then we could have (MAYBE) had McDyess for the LLE if our big 3 begged at his door

    Artest is a punk, his fans are teens ignorant to the game or else live in Cali and root for the bad guys

    To answer the OP's question: NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Was Artest going to come off the bench?  NO!!!!!!  Tony Allen this and Tony Allen that.  Is he now the Kobe -Stopper? or LeBron-Stopper?  Did he hold Kobe to under 20 points for the series?  Ray Allen gaurded most of the time.  Did Tony stop LeBron, who by the way had a hurt elbow?  NO.  Pierce gaurded him most of the time.

    Artest was worse for LA than Ariza would have been last year

    LA was crushed by Boston in '08 and then got helped by the refs to win by 4 at home in '10

    They felt they needed Ron to beat the tougher Celts, but really, other than his lucky shot, he dragged them down, didn't fit in the triangle and is 32 years old

    LA was silly not to keep Ariza... DESPITE the title... b/c they got lucky and ron is crazy and costs them a ton of cash

    DoctorCO,

    If losing in the NBA Finals makes you a bad player then what do you consider Larry Bird or Magic Johnson. I think they were 2 of the top 4 players to ever play the game and they lost a combined 6 championships (4 by Magic and 2 by Bird). And as for Paul Pierce, Artest didn't exactly shut him down (he averaged around the same points but shot a way lower percentage) but he did a good job keeping him in check and not letting him blow up like he did in the '08 Finals. As I see it both Sheed and Artest earned their paychecks and they were both good pickups.

    [QUOTE]You all know, if you've been here at all since 2007, how big a fan of Artest's game I am. I am wondering know if we went after the right guy last summer. Especially now that we possibly could have deducted him from the Lakers + have him and Tony Allen to throw at Wade and Lebron. We might have the crown this year despite the refs! Or we may have lost to Orlando without Sheed's defense on Dwight Howard! I am conflicted.

    Ron always wanted to be a Laker.  You never had a shot!

    Artest was the MVP of Game 7.  Stop the whining and accept that your team lost!  The Lakers are the champs...back to back champs!

    Everyone knows that had Bynum and Ariza been healthy in 08 the Lake Show would have 17, Boston 16, a 3-peat completed and heading for a fourth.

    Oh well, 3-peat will be finished after the next season and the world will know boston got lucky. Such is life.

    Bynum has NEVER been healthy.  Get real!

    Artest wasn't meant to "shove words down Pierce's throat" - I agree with the assessment that those are the words of an Internet Warrior.

    Artest was meant to guard LEBRON, but he choked, so guarding Pierce wasn't the worst thing either.

    YOU GUYS HAD VLADIMIR RADMONIVIC PLAYING IN THE NBA FINALS!  YOU DESERVED TO LOSE IN 2008.

    Give it a break Laker troll..........show all the highlights you want......how about pulling up some of the video of ref calls in the 4th quarter.......face it....you have the championship, but it is TAINTED. When 2010 is brought up the lopsided ref calls will always be part of the conversation.

    Straight from the horses mouth as to why the celtics lost. No mention of phantom fouls/no calls. Just got beat, introducing Doc Rivers.

    And to re-iterate the point, Paul Pierce why the celts lost. Rebounding, Laker length and big shots. Nothing about fouls, oh yeah that's the excuse for people who can't handle getting beat!!

    Thsi is like saying if Lewis and Bias had lived the C's would have had more titles. It's unproven and unprovable.
