Ron Artest is Trevor Arizaâ€™s shoe assailant. Thatâ€™s right, during last nightâ€™s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Houston Rockets, Artest threw Arizaâ€™s shoe into the stands in mid-play. The video of the incident has already gone viral. Read more below.
Ron Artest has earned the reputation of being one of the classiest players in the NBA. Wait a second, I believe I meant to say nastiest. He is no stranger to controversy, and that is exactly what he caused last night by tossing Trevor Arizaâ€™s shoe away while the ball was still in play.
Not only is this unsportsmanlike behavior, but also many, including myself, believe that it was extremely immature. Is it not enough that the bad boy Laker took Arizaâ€™s spot on the team this year? Now he has to throw his shoe too! Is there no decency left in this crazy world?!
To be fair though, I got quite a chuckle from watching the viral video, and I believe many others did as well. Also, to add insult to injury, that was a pretty three pointer by number 37 aka the shoe assailant.
There have already been numerous reports asking the question. Will this incident spark a rivalry between the two? What do you think?
