Once Again Ron Artest Gives a Great Post-Game Interview

LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 06:  Ron Artest #96 of the Houston Rockets points to his neck as he talks with referee Bill Spooner before he was ejected in the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game Two of the Western Conference Semifinals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at Staples Center on May 6, 2009 in Los Angeles, California.

Ron Artest was tossed out of Game Two of the Western Conference semifinals for confronting Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

After taking a hard foul, Artest had had enough of Kobe's antics, and he was ready to let him know.

Of course, being who he is, Artest was stopped by the refs right away and tossed from the game—an overreaction, perhaps, but that's what you get when you are Ron Artest.

Perhaps the best part of this whole situation was Artest's explanation of his actions during his post-game interview. For once he actually makes sense, and frankly he makes a valid point.
