Video: Jimmy Kimmel gets Ron Artest good

Posted by Royce Young

Ron Artest has been a very giving, caring person over the years. He donated his championship ring to raise money for mental health awareness, raising some $700,000. He's been active in a lot of charities, giving money, helping out by attaching his name to things or by volunteering.

So Jimmy Kimmel thought he'd take advantage of Ron-Ron's kind heart -- by getting him good. I have to tell you, some videos people say, "Man, this one is funny, watch it." But I mean it. This one is good.

Ron Artest tried to play pop-a-shot in boxers

Posted by Royce Young

You should really read Chris Ballard's fascinating piece on Ricardo Reyes, the Pop-A-Shot king who defeated five NBA stars on Jimmy Kimmel Live. But there was actually supposed to be a sixth NBA player for Reyes to take on. Only there was a problem.
An interesting side note: there was supposed to be a sixth Kimmel opponent, Ron Artest, but then Artest showed up for his interview with Kimmel wearing only boxer shorts. The Lakers handlers, sensing disaster, whisked him away from the studio before he could film his showdown with Ricardo.
So, so many questions here. Did Artest drive to the studio in only boxers? Did he not bring any pants? Why? Did he know he was going on TV? Why couldn't he have just put on pants for the pop-a-shot contest? Did Artest have some sort of stipulation that he'd only appear if he got to wear boxers?

Here's the thing though: Artest still went on TV in only boxers. He just didn't film his competition with Reyes in boxers.

Wade talks to Jimmy Kimmel on how it went down

Posted by Royce Young

Dwyane Wade appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and talked a lot about the whole situation in Miami. Well, actually Jimmy Kimmel just pretty much prodded Wade a bit, and made fun of the Knicks. It's good stuff. One interesting note: Sounds like Wade's eight-year-old son is actually the architect of all this.
