View Full Version : Fiery Artest Says You Can't Judge Book by Cover

Some people know Ron Artest only from the brawl with Detroit Pistons fans which got the Indiana Pacers forward tossed out of the NBA for most of last season.

To them, he's a thug, an out-of-control athlete who symbolizes everything wrong with the NBA - all of professional sports, really.

"Maybe I did something on TV and somebody is like, `Man, that kid's out of control.' Or they say, `He needs to change a little bit.' But they care," Artest said. "The people who want to know, they don't just judge because they hear or they see a couple of things in the paper. For those type of people, I don't mind letting them know what I'm really about.

"But some people are like, `Oh, he's a jerk. He's this, he's that.' So you just tell those people to kiss my ***.

when the book runs into the stands and beats up fans........yeah I think you CAN judge a book by its cover.

If you start a riot and do it on national TV, I think you pretty much have cemented your legacy
