7:15 a.m. -- Yes, Ron Artest is crazy. Crazy people think Ron Artest is crazy. But he's not crazy 24/7. For instance, this morning, Artest is taking his kids to school in his Escalade, not his bright red, open-wheel Indy race car.â†µ
"Cops always pull me over, but it's street legal!" protests Artest, 31.â†µ
That's Rick Reilly writing, and with today's feature at ESPN, we can now add "made Rick Reilly bearable" to the list of amazing thing Ron Artest's done in the past twelve months.â†µ
Seriously, Reilly takes us Inside the Brain Of Artest, and it makes for a great way to start the day. No different than most of what we've heard from Artest the past few year, but this story still hasn't gotten stale. Hilarious, honest, and completely original. "Beans are nature's steroids!" Artest screams at one point in the article. And Artest is journalism's readymade acid trip. Take a few minutes to enjoy the ride.
