Puttin' niggaz on skids, jump out and straight crash
'Cause they put 'im on the glass

Many a folk couldn’t swallow The Worm… but from rookie to ‘kooky’ The Menace played his role with more passion, instinct and character than most. And his trash-talk/psych(o)-game was untouchable. But his Bad Boy rep went from glitter to gutter (or vice-versa?) and things don’t look good for the near future.
Now, Ben Wallace is probably my favorite player since Dennis Rodman (obviously D & D is the game for me) but QB rep Ron Artest is a close second with his D-game and street stiggidy. In fact, last year at this time I called a Pacers/Lakers final (eventhough my heart was in Motown… life-lesson learned). However, Artest just got a few points that nudge him towards the top spot…He made the first major public display honoring Rodman as one of the GREAT players. Artest loves switching his jersey number and this year he’s opted for The Big Man’s 91. Let this be the first of many steps that will let that pinball-playing, cross-dressing, drunk, Carmen Electra-Ex, former janitor get his rightful place in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
