In related NBA news, yes, Ron Artest is as tough as I thought he was. When he said game 2 against the Lakers wasn't the most physical game he's ever played, 'cause he played in a game where his friend got stabbed with a broken off table leg. For real. Ron Artest, not like us! not at all! way, way too tough & scary.
Note to nephew V: sorry for doubting your admiration of Chauncey - he's awesome. Okay, not as much of a tree-hugging, war-hating hippie as stevie, but still very cool. Even Sweet Melon isn't as annoying as he once was. Go Nuggets!
