When Ron Artest dropped by “Lopez Tonight” after last season’s Lakers championship win, big-time Lakers fan George Lopez offered to buy Artest a Rolls Royce Phantom similar to the one Khloe Kardashian bought Lamar Odom. Ron-Ron being Ron-Ron replied, “It’s OK, I’ll take a Hyundai.” It appears George is a man of his word because he bought a Hyundai Genesis, tricked it out in Lakers gold and purple, and presented it to Ron when he came back on his show in March. Finally, we get to see some detailed pictures.
If this was any other NBA player, I imagine he would donate this car to a friend or family member because a true baller obviously can’t be seen driving around in a friggin’ Hyundai. But this is Ron Artest we’re talking about, so I’m almost positive this is now his main ride and that it will make an appearance if the Lakers have a three-peat victory parade in June.
CelebrityCarz.com isn’t feeling this custom job, giving it a two out of 10 while calling it “a joke and gimmick car” and “not too impressive”. In terms of “RonArtest-ness” though, I give it a 10 out of 10.
