Ron Artest Making Statements?



Lakers small forward and top personality Ron Artest decided to get creative en route to LA's third consecutive loss in Orlando. Earlier he reached out to his followers on twitter, asking how to write "Defense" in Hebrew and India...We all saw why this afternoon when he introduced his new hairstyle to the thousands in attendance at the Amway Arena. Turns out the languages picked out in bold purple were Hebrew, Japanese and Hindi.

But what's the point of writing defense if no one playing can read it? I know Vince Carter couldn't translate as he went on to net 25 points. Dwight Howard controlled the paint with 15 points while collecting 16 boards over Pau Gasol all day long.

Some of the Lakers apparently dubbed the Magic as "puppies" before the game, calling out their "soft" style of play. Howard had a few choice words following his dominant performance, saying "Alpha dogs usually have the big bark. But since we're so-called puppies, we won't bark as loud."

Lesson learned for Ron Artest and the LA Lakers: Spend more time preparing on the court over the hair salon so you don't lose three in a row. We'll see if Artest keeps the look for their next contest against the Raptors Tuesday night.

    I liked his hair. I mean, if you're going to lose anyways, go out with style...
