Saturday, December 18th was a strange night in the life of Ron Artest, even by Ron Artest’s standards. A group of Toronto artists created an art show celebrating Ron’s career entitled, “Lovable Badass.” And, as if to prove how unpredictable he is, Ron decided to show up. Check out the madness!

  9. this is why I love Ron Ron. such an enigmatic, but amazing human being. Such a character.

  10. The basketball flipping the bird is so damn cool! I would buy a print of that. I want to read the whole ‘He Nuts’ comic. And some of the portraits were really well done. The Michael Jackson one is sweet. Great segment but I wish you would have had a full interview with Ron. You drank to much and did not expect that kind of access didn’t you?

    Still, awesome.
