Ron Artest Pulls Embarrassing World Cup-Like Dive, Dishonors Queensbridge Roots
“Say Queensbridge now, Ron!”

Jeff Van Gundy took the words out of our mouths on Sunday night after Lakers’ forward Ron Artest pulled off one of Hollywood’s worst acting jobs in Game 5 at the TD Garden.

Approached by two fingers of the 185-pound Rajon Rondo after hacking Kevin Garnett, Artest went all Matrix on the parquet floor to draw the technical foul. He got Rondo T’d up, but in doing so, thousands back home in New York’s Queensbridge housing development could only bow their heads in embarrassment.

Say Louisville, Ron!

Quote of the day

“I’m not that strong. He did [flop] a little bit. He’s probably the strongest guy on the court in this series. I’ve been lifting a little bit, but other than that, I didn’t push him that hard.”
–Rajon Rondo, referring to Ron Artest’s flop

Video of the day

Arguably the best way to celebrate a Stanley Cup victory: calling a defeated opponent “the biggest idiot in the league.”
