Self-Proclaimed “Head Case” Ron Artest Speaks on Drinking Henny During his Games, Smoking the Kush, and Being Ghetto

- By Bossip Staff

NBA “Bad Boy” Ron Artest sure is one interesting character:

Ron Artest—best known as the central figure in the infamous Malice at the Palace in 2004—bared all, including a startling admission that he drank alcohol during games as a member of the Chicago Bulls, for whom he played from 1999-2002.

“I used to drink Hennessy … at halftime,” Artest says in the interview, which hits newsstands this week. “I (kept it) in my locker. I’d just walk to the liquor store (near the stadium) and get it.”

“When I was a 19-year-old father, whew. I was a single pimp! I was wild. A lot of marijuana and alcohol—even before (that age). … I (still) party and I have fun, but not like I used to. I used to drink every night and party every night.”

On why things fell apart for him in Chicago and Indiana: “It was all my fault. The first team, in Chicago, I was a head case. I worked really hard but still had this ghetto thing in me that I could not get out. … I could’ve stayed at Indiana my whole career, but I said I wanted to be traded. I was getting more stable, but I was still unstable and I was a bad teammate. They had to get rid of me.”

The first step to resolving a problem is admitting that you have a problem. Kudos to Ron for realizing that he is a little bit of a nutcase.

    Artest actually showed what a coward he is in Detroit that night when he attacked that fan. Ben Wallace was the one who really tried to start the fight by hitting Artest but Artest took one look at Ben and ran away from him and then Artest goes right into the stands and attacked this fat defenseless dude. What a punk. If he was so crazy/bad he would have fought Ben Wallace.
