I was delighted last month when I spotted this pic of Ron Artest hugging some random children at Ihawan, a Filipino barbecue joint in Woodside, Queens. (Crappy shot, but click to enlarge.)

More recently, I decided to start following Mr. Artest on Twitter. This was one of the best decisions I've made in a minute:

I asked my dude Doron, with whom I discuss many NBA-related issues, if he thought Ron the Laker was a good idea. "His presence will embolden Kobe to be a dick," Doron said, "and they will pretend to be friends even though Kobe thinks Ron is a certified lunatic."

He's absolutely right and I cannot wait. Don't be surprised if Trapper Juan morphs into Trapper Ron sooner rather than later.
