Ron Artest Pranks Houston Rockets Postgame Broadcast by Posing as Luis Scola

While Houston Rockets forward Luis Scola was celebrating the team’s 109-99 victory over the Lakers Wednesday in the locker room, Lakers forward Ron Artest took on the role of Scola during a postgame interview on 1560 The Game, an unofficial radio show .

Artest should have had nothing to joke about as the Lakers dropped to 13-6 on the year on the night, picking up their fourth consecutive loss in Houston. Not to mention he only made two baskets in the 17 minutes he was on the court. Scola, on the other hand, added 14 points to his team's win.

During the post-game interview, the host believed he was speaking with Scola when it was really Artest. The Lakers forward tried to mask his identity by putting on a terrible Spanish accent.

Artest (Scola) opened the interview by saying, "I think I am the best player in the world….I feel like Shaq." And to the host's question of "how are you going to celebrate," Artest replied "I am going to celebrate by eating Spanish food." How creative.

It is debatable whether or not the host knew it wasn't Scola by the way he was laughing throughout the short interview.

Listen to the clip below to hear Artest’s impression.
