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.
