Thank goodness we have the Ron Artests of the world to put the Brett Favre situation in perspective.
At this point of his career, there's no way that Artest's abilities as a player compensate for the b.s. that streams from his mouth on a weekly, if not daily basis. He obviously does not want to be a King, so I would advise the Kings management (not that they've ever listened to me before) to get rid of him, the sooner the better.
And I'm even OK with Artest heading to the Lakers. It will make it all the easier to boo him when the season begins this fall.
