Ron Artest: The feisty Lakers’ forward was asked who he thought were the best players in the league, and he said Kobe, followed by Kevin Durant. No LeBron? “I only count to two. I’ve been out of school for 10 years. I only count to two,” Artest said. Assuming the Lakers and Heat reach the Finals, how about these matchups: Matt Barnes on LeBron, Artest on Wade, Kobe on … ? Or do you put Kobe on LeBron or Wade? That would drain the old man’s offensive game. He’s already off to a terrible start in the preseason (4-for-28).
Big departure from Clipper Land.
Should be a good time.
