“I’m too good,” he said. “If you’re going to trade me, you may as well get LeBron [James] or Kevin Durant. Go get somebody. That’s what I was thinking from the people talking in the media. If it’s not for Dwyane Wade, it doesn’t make sense. I’m too good.”


You've got love RonRon's confidence.

I now have a higher opinion of Jim Buss.


Same here. I think now that he's finally opened up to the media and actually making an effort to explain his views on the organization has helped him a lot... that and getting us players like Nash.
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

Here's hoping that confidence translates to more consistency on the court as well.

He has grown on me too. Validations from other players & former players Reggie Miller, in the league. I didn't like him at first until all these interviews. The guy is just genuine alright.

He looks terrific, better than at most points of last season (until playoffs). RT @GaetanoP76: @LakersReporter does Metta look in shape?

I love Ron Artest. I'm always in his corner because I really do think he brought intangibles to the team. And who can forget that Game 7 against the Celtics. He carried us to the ring. I'm loving his new attitude and conditioning. And let's hope that his back is indeed fixed, and that he put this money where his mouth is. :jam2:

If Ron puts together a solid season for us that could be what puts us over the top.. Nash & Jamison were major upgrades.. A little internal growth from Ron being in great shape all season & we're much deeper than most anticipate

Why would he need to lose weight? He already lost some.

he looks years younger. looks way more in shape and lighter. i think he'll have a good year and show what he can do. he's been saying a lot of things this off season and i believe he'll back it up...especially with Nash passing him the ball.

should be way more athletic and quick on offense and defense this year. Even when he wasnt in shape he still played pretty decent defense...so it should be worlds better this season.

looks really good though..im happy for him that he got the back nerve thing all sorted out. bc you could tell he was really trying but his body wouldnt respond. we saw flashes during the end of the season (ex: harden elbow dunk / averaging 14ppg)...so i expect to see more of that next season (without the elbow of course)

Wow is that really a recent pic? He looks far slimmer than he did even towards the end of last year.
