On purpose.. lol He learned to atleast to act like it was an accident instead of ignoring that it happened all together.

I'd ban that fool for life man, enough is enough.
I hate how he keeps getting away with it, they should at least take away his World Peace name because he simply doesn't deserve it. I for one never accepted the name change anyway. He'll never change...

If he would ever come to TO I'm done being a Raps fan...

nothing with ron-ron is on purpose because he doesn't actually use his brain to process actions. stuff just happens and it takes him a few minutes to catch up and figure out what he did...

damn Lin's a warrior. I used to think that Artest only had a couple screws loose but it's obvious this guy is missing major pieces.

I think that's exactly it. His instinct is to swing, then when he realizes what he's actually done he starts apologizing to Lin. It really the same way he play on the court, he routinely gets brain freezes on offense where he just holds the ball and doesn't know what to do or does something completely irrational.

No... He intentionally wants to hit someone but plays it off like an accident to fool everyone so he can avoid technicals/ejections. Just look at this play...

I should hope he does then, and soon.

Bargnani's hair gel would provide an extra layer of defense.

BTW I just finished watching the Rockets-Lakers game and Artest hasn't regressed as much as I thought he had, he was really contributing to the offense as well as the defense.

But man do I like my man Parsons, if we would trade Calderon for any (reasonable) player please let it be Parsons. It would actually make sense since Lin could use some veteran help at the PG spot. But it will take a lot more than Caldy to get Parsons...

I think it has a lot to do with the shape Metta's in. He came in to camp almost 20 pounds lighter than last year. The only thing holding him back is his brain.

As for Parsons, he's a nice well-rounded player, but his stats for the Lakers game were really inflated because they put Kobe on him and that usually means wide open shots as Kobe plays roamer and sits in the paint.
