If you’re looking for clips of Ron Artest on Dancing with the Stars, you’re not going to find them here.
If you’re looking for pictures where I photoshop Ron into a Laker game wearing his ridiculous dancing outfits, you’re looking in the wrong place (though that’s a good idea).
The only dancing I like to see from Ron is the jubilant, up and down version he displayed after Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals in 2010.
The Lakers and Suns were tied 2-2 in a best of 7 showdown, and the winner of Game 5 was sure to take a stranglehold on the series. Tied at 101, with 3.5 seconds left, an inbounds pass went directly to Kobe, who hoisted a deep, contested two-point shot. Ron Ron picked up on the flight of the ball, immediately reacted, and cut directly to the basket to rebound the sure miss.
With a catch, spin and shot all in one move, Ron put in the game-winner at the horn. The Lakers would finish the Suns in Game 6, before heading to the Finals where Los Angeles beat their hated rivals, the Boston Celtics, for the 2010 NBA Finals.
That’s how I remember Ron Artest. That’s how I remember him dancing. Hell, after that basket, all the Lakers danced. Together.

I have an Artest jersey. He is one of my favorite Lakers. This game, and game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals, are the reasons why.
