Ron Artest speaks

BOSTON — If you get a chance, pick up Sports Illustrated when it hits newsstands on Wednesday. There’s a feature on Ron Artest. I got a sneak-peak today. Here are a few lines from Lee Jenkins’ piece: “During media sessions he talked about the art of taking a charge (‘If you flop and call an offensive foul in my neighborhood, somebody can get stabbed’), the importance of sportsmanship (‘I don’t like playing against guys who are nice to me–then I get vulnerable and weak’), how he perceives himself on the team (‘It’s like I’m watching TV and jumped into the screen and became Scottie Pippen’) and how he wants to be remembered (‘for people to say I was ghetto’).”

P.S. John Wooden is on the cover.
