Artest still doesn’t get it

NEW YORK — Ron Artest admitted to ESPN.com that he doesn’t get the Lakers’ triangle offense, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone who has watched the burly small forward attempt to fake his way through the many options of the offense. Here’s what he said about trying to grasp the triangle: “See, I can’t really understand the triangle, There’s 1,000 plays in the triangle. It’s such a challenge. I get so frustrated about it. … So I just stay in my one spot in the corner. If I leave my spot, I get yelled at. (Lakers coach) Phil (Jackson’s) gonna say, ‘What are you doing over there!’ So I just don’t move.” Artest had two points on 1-for-6 shooting in Friday’s loss to the Chicago Bulls. He is averaging only 7.8 points this season. His career average is 15.5.
