NBA Loud - by Rick Gillispie

Kevin Federline Beats Ron Artest.

Now that Ron Artest’s album has been released for about two weeks
Sorry Ron but your album isn't going to be number one.
there would be more than one reader dying to know how much of a success his album has been. The pre-release hype in the basketball media was deafening with the talk of another Ron-Ron emerging through art.

The album ‘My World’ was supposed to blow up and make Artest larger than his basketball playing thug persona. Has that happened? Well, do you really want to know all you fine readers out there in cyberspace?

Can we get a drum-roll please?

The official first week figures of units moved for Ron-Ron’s album is: 343 records sold!

Hmm, in any language that is a rather paltry effort. Come on! NBA fans go out there and blow your precious dollars on Ron-Ron’s album because I am sure it is a worthy purchase. I mean
Think about it: Almost as many people bought this man's record in comparison to Artest's!
going through past history with NBA players releasing rap albums there is certainly a great pedigree there for all you hip hop aficionados for some quality MC’ing (cough, cough).

Does anyone want a little perspective on how badly Ron-Ron’s album sales figures have been? Kevin Federline’s album sold 6142 more albums than Artest’s! Talk about an emasculating statistic.

Ron-Ron should take heart that at least he outsold William Hung’s Christmas record by one – with that in mind it can’t be all bad right? Right?

In other NBA related news Kobe Bryant is being sued by an Arkansas man who has accused the Laker star of deliberately elbowing him during a game against the Grizzlies last year.

Ben Geeslin has accused Bryant of coming off court during a play, landing on him then intentionally and without provocation elbowing Benny boy. Geeslin seeks more than $75, 000 in unspecified injuries that required medical attention from the alleged incident.

Don’t you just love lawyers?

I wonder if K-Fed can take a well planted elbow. Probably make for a good song.

that would be a sentiment that many around the world would share.
