Ron Artest -- Los Angeles Hero

5/28/2010 4:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ junkie Ron Artest became an instant hero in Los Angeles last night -- when dude hit a last second shot to clinch a Game 5 Playoff victory for the L.A. Lakers.

It does not go without notice that Ron was one of the first pro athletes to visit the TMZ newsroom.

In related news, former TMZ Live guest Jared Dudley of the Phoenix Suns played pretty damn well last night too.

The lesson here -- TMZ is the new Kate Hudson.

I don't get why people spend so much time watch games like basketball. Let me see. You are spending hours a week watching millionaires run around in shorts bouncing a ball and trying to throw it threw a hole. Then listen to their ever word after the game like they really did something important. Explain it to me.

Its come down to the value of entertainment Eric, such as your perceived value of reading TMZ and commenting on a story, you take the time to ready either because you like it or your feel you get something out of it. A lot of people see value in sports entertainment, others choose to spend their time blogging, perhaps reading online news, or fashion. It's simply a lifestyle choice as to what entertains you. If you do not enjoy sports don't turn on ESPN and if you feel celebrities shouldn't include athletes don't click on stories pertaining to the "non celebrities". Either way we are all entertained by something, enjoy whatever it is you find value in.

Ummm I'm pretty sure Chuck Lidell has been in your newsroom before.



If you don't consider UFC fighters "professional athletes" than you are on glue.

I hope he reads this then. He is a punk, a jerk, a bully. His past proves it. I could care less about him. Frankly, I didn't even think he was still in the NBA. I thought he was jerking off bull frogs with Sprewell. Those 2 clowns are the face of the NBA & why fewer & fewer fans care.

Yeah, he redeemed himself and the suns made a a play that a non-championship team would make. Ron Artest took advantage and became a hero because it was the most important of the playoffs; so yeah, it still makes him a hero

So this idiot shoots a last minute basket and now he's a hero.. people are so fickle... If he missed there's no telling what carnage may have occurred or who he may have attacked.
