From Sam Amick in The Bee:
"He has to balance the way he acts," Joe Maloof said by phone. "He's got to control his emotions a little better. You've got to try and keep your cool a little bit.
"Take a deep breath and quit flying off the handle with comments that don't make sense. I hate to say it that way, but that's how I feel. It doesn't make sense to me."
It doesn't make sense to me either, but it remains impossible to be surprised by anything Ron Artest says (or, uh, emails).
Meanwhile, before Ron-Ron got the message he talked to the Rocky Mountain News.
"I cannot play in Denver because they question my drive to finish my career off strong and not embarrass my family," Artest wrote.
Artest wasn't specific when asked who might have been critical of him. He also was asked if this means he won't consider Denver as a 2009 free agent.
"That's not even an option to be a Nugget," he wrote. "They let me know how they felt about me already."
Way to do Geoff Petrie's job, dude.
