NBA Power Rankings: Ron Artest and 15 NBA Players That Should Join MMA

So Ron Artest was getting mixed up in more extra-curricular activity on the court last night after getting into a mix-up with Gerald Wallace of the Trail Blazers.

It's just the latest on-court antics from Artest, who was in the middle of the infamous Malice at the Palace seven years ago and has had some dust-ups since. Remember, this was the man who started the whole thing by using the first two rows as a giant hurdle and then slapped some guy into next week.

So with that in mind, and considering Artest is a noted boxing fan from his guest column in Sports Illustrated a while back, it got us to thinking about NBA players and the world of MMA.

They're not as separate as you might think. Nowadays a lot of players use MMA to help train and keep in shape during the offseason. In that same vein, these are the 15 players we think should take a shot at MMA. 

And of course, Ron-Ron is on the list. I wonder where he could end up.
