The Lakers held their championship parade Monday, working its way from Staples Center to USC's campus. While the parade might have been to celebrate the entire team and their NBA Finals win, I'm fairly certain the only reason anyone was there was to take in the delights of Ron Artest.
Artest puffed on a cigar and wore a black top hat festooned with purple and gold feathers that his daughter glued to it, the latest celebratory act for the player who had partied the most since the Lakers beat the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals on Thursday.
"I slept a total of 30 to 40 minutes in three days," said Artest, who has danced at nightclubs in his Lakers jersey since the team won its 16th title and also managed to squeeze in a recording session with noted music producer Dr. Dre for a song called "Champion."
Speaking of Champion, the official music video was also released Monday. It is also a delight.
