Artest a football player?

MINNEAPOLIS — Ron Artest said he hopes to try out for an NFL team once his playing days in the NBA are done. He said he believes he can be a tight end. He also said he might consider boxing, too. “I’m definitely going to try,” he said before tonight’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. “The worst thing that could happen is they say, ‘You suck.’” Artest laid out his plans to a pack of reporters. Lamar Odom, seated nearby, was incredulous. He asked Artest, “What are you going to do?” When Artest told him, Odom said flatly, “No, you’re not.”
