Why are so many people already assuming an Artest-Maggette swap is becoming imminent and the way to go? Sure Artest has reportedly been a bit crazy but I still don't understand why people are being so impatient with Artest? Mike Bibby deserves the criticism, he stinks right now and Artest is a bonafide player. He hustles,defends and gives this team a shot in the arm. He's misunderstood right now but he's not the only reason the Kings stink. I thought Petrie's MO was patience and the Maloofs desperately wanted to bring Artest over even though Petrie didnt want him. You can also blame management for not stepping up by resigning Wells and bringing Adelman back for maintaining continunity.
