Default Phil: Artest-Rodman

Ron Artest has done an admirable job defending Kevin Durant this postseason, but he's still having issues learning the Lakers' complex triangle offense.

Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times wrote Saturday, "Long before tipoff, just past noon on Saturday, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum were instructing Ron Artest after the Lakers' shoot-around."

The pair were trying to help Artest find the best angles for entry passes.

"We were trying to show him how to do certain things," Gasol said.

Phil Jackson told Artest beforehand to pass more often, but the Lakers' coach isn't frustrated with himů yet.

"He's a na´ve, innocent lamb," Jackson said. "I think he's mistaken in a lot of ways, put in the same category as Dennis Rodman. There couldn't be a bigger disparity between people."
Lakers are in trouble.

Put in the same category as Rodman....based on hairstyles...right?

based on hair styles, also based on eyebrow-raising public behavior, and lack of emotional control on the court. I suppose there are other loose similarities in terms of playing styles, but really not as much as Artest would like to believe.

I like how Phil calls him "naive and innocent lamb". Leave it to Phil

I think Phil just wants him to concentrate on being Ron, and to quit trying to invoke Rodman, whether it's with hair styles, with jersey numbers or anything else.

That's what made Rodman, Rodman. He wans't trying to evoke or emulate anyone, he was being himself.
