This kind of thing is way less aggrevating now that he's in a different city. From Henry Abbot of True Hoop: "Ron Artest is completely well-intentioned. He is willing to accept any role, including role player around Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady as planned. The problem with that is that McGrady has rarely been the McGrady that Artest planned, and McGrady has not played at all the past three games (the past four if you count his statue imitation in Miami.) With the Rockets short-handed and Artest so determined to solve their every need, he has apparently decided that the Rockets need him to play as he did for the Kings last season when Kevin Martin was out. Artest carried that offense and led the Kings to a surprisingly solid season. This season, however, he is playing more minutes and on a still-sore right ankle. Far too often, we get dribble, dribble, dribble, force a shot."
