Ron Artest Wears a Fake Beard, Plays Football With Jimmy Kimmel (VIDEO)

Ron Artest Wears a Fake Beard, Plays Football With Jimmy KimmelNBA star Ron Artest is an odd fellow. He's won a world championship, but he's better known for his unique brand of behavior.

Artest was the first basketball player to ever run into the stands and attack a fan. Less dangerously, but just as weirdly, he drank cognac during the halftime of games, wore a bathrobe to practice -- and applied for a job at Circuit City, so that he could get an employee discount (while earning millions of dollars a year).

All of this makes Artest a risk to have on your team -- but it also makes him an excellent guest on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

Ron has been on the show before, and Jimmy is excited to have him back. Kimmel is ready for some weirdness. Artest doesn't disappoint him. Mr. Artest showed up in a fake beard, and also wore a crazy hat and socks with sandals. This was a major fashion faux pas, but that was just the beginning. Next, Ron made Jimmy play touch football, and confessed his undying love for singer Celine Dion. It was all so bewildering that ... well, you should just watch it for yourself.

I see that Artest is still a LOSER. He's the reason I quit watching pro baskeyball.
What a dumbass.
People in Indiana are glad he's gone.

Scott, It's not about individualism, it's about you understanding that there are other definitions of "self-respect, propriety and judgment" than your own. You don't even know the man personally, so how can you claim to know that he does not respect himself. You apparently have a low intercultural IQ. (Yes, I'm making the determination that you are from a different culture than Mr. Artest. ) You, like so many Americans, are soooo interculturally incompetent. It amazing how you think that it's his responsibility to make you and others feel comfortable with his behavior; that in itself is enough evidence for make me believe that you haven't spent much time your circle of "norm" There are people who are culturally different from you. Do yourself, and everyone else, a favor and learn how to see through lenses other than your own because one day you may just wake up and discover that your definition of self-respect, propriety and judgment does not reflect the majority.

He just provided L.A. sports fans with a fantastic resource. Rather than throw away all those old Manny wigs, brush out the dreads and turn them into Ron Artest fake beards!

YOU CAN ALL TALK ABOUT INDIVIDUALISM....but there is still a time and a place for everything. Equally important are things like self respect, propriety, and judgement. He embarasses himself and those around him. MAKING OTHER PEOPLE UNCOMFORTABLE IS NOT FREE EXPRESSION, it's bullying people.

Scott, you wrote, "MAKING OTHER PEOPLE UNCOMFORTABLE IS NOT FREE EXPRESSION, it's bullying people." How ironic because most white Americans have for centuries, and still today, been making people who aren't like them feel uncomfortable by expecting them to reflect their own definitions of normative behavior. So, if making people feel uncomfortable with behavior is bullying, you just called yourself a bully.

Good job Mr. Artest, because were you come from (QB) and the way you are behaving now is much better than selling drugs, mudering people or stealing...... Keep up the good work and continue to pay ur taxes, be yourself, express yourself and love yourself

your friends @ Queens Bridge

Hey, Tony! Let's see... Mr. Artest has been able to realize his full potential as an athlete and CHOSE to remain a person who marches to his own beat. You, on the other hand, probably have not been able to manifest a fraction of the potential he has been able to realize, and have remained a mindless puppet unable to resist indoctrination into societal norms that marginalize those who are different. It seems to me that you're the one who's going to need meds, especially if you choose to remain doped up on cultural norms. Wake up, puppet. You can definitely learn a thing or two from Mr. Artest about pulling your own strings instead of being conditioned to allow society to pull them for you.
