Ron Artest: June 16, 2010 - Where Amazing Happened

November 19th is an important day for Ron Artest. Ten years ago today, Artest triggered one of the ugliest moments in NBA history, the "Malace at the Palace." I'm taking a different approach, focusing on a different date in the great career of Ron Artest.

If you don't know why June 16, 2010 was a note worthy day, then please allow me to assist your recollection of why it will forever be the stuff of basketball lore. The Minnesota Timberwolves host the New York Knicks and it's hard to find history between the two teams worth writing about, so let us venture outside of the box and take that proverbial trip down memory lane to write about former Knick (albeit brief), Ron Artest...when he was a Laker (and yes I know that that is definitely a stretch).


If You Think the Pohlad's are Cheap, Here's a Challenge For You

Ah yes, here we are again…the Major League Baseball offseason. For those not lucky enough to see their teams make a deep postseason run in to October, the “offseason” started in September. Heck, it basically started in June for some of us. This also seems to be the time when fans think they have the quick fix answers to make their teams relevant. I'll admit, I’m one of them, but I tend to have more realistic thoughts/ideas than most fans I come across (you’ll know what I mean shortly).

So, to those fans (or any fan really), I’ve got a challenge for you. This is your chance to prove you’re smarter than the general managers and owners who spend every day of the year looking for ways to improve their teams. Read on if you are interested…(actually, read on anyways as this topic is a touchy one)


If Adrian Peterson Doesn't Play This Year, Should Vikings Fans Care?

Before you start bashing me hear me out. Everyone knows that Adrian Peterson has pled no contest to the reckless assault charges. According to the recently signed Collective Bargaining Agreement, that would be enough grounds to automatically suspend him for six games, no questions asked. Since he has sat out eight games already many people have assumed that he has served enough time and could be ready to suit up next week at Soldier Field. That may not be the case.


If Roger Goodell Allows Adrian Peterson Back in 2014, When Will That Be?

By now, you've probably heard (a few hundred times) that Minnesota Vikings' running back, Adrian Peterson, decided to plead no contest to his child abuse charges and is looking to be reinstated immediately. With all the heat Roger Goodell, the NFL and the Vikings took in handling the Peterson case early on, will the former MVP get his wish? If so, when should fans expect to cheer (or boo) the best running back in the game? I have a theory.


Ricky Rubio's Contract IS Worth It to the Minnesota Timberwolves

When news broke last week that the Minnesota Timberwolves and Ricky Rubio had agreed to a four year, $55 million contract extension, the collective reaction was “WTF?!” Minnesota fans were quick to argue that this was more money than Stephen Curry or even Kemba Walker had recently received, and how both of them are better scorers then the Spaniard. While this may be true, Rubio offers an awful lot to the Timberwolves young roster.

Here's why.
