If Artest Gets Traded to Detroit, Will Earth Implode Immediately, Or Will It Take an Hour?

Filed under: Kings, Pistons, NBA RumorsWant a wild rumor, even worse than some photos of Josh Childress in a Greek airport? Enjoy this bomb from the ’s Sam Amick: the Detroit Pistons might be trying to trade for Ron Artest.[F]rom what I was told from one source close to the Pistons, they [the Pistons] are [interested]. I’ve yet to get this info from more than one person, so stay tuned. But much like the Mavs’ situation, this could be one of those where the player the Kings want (perhaps Tayshaun Prince) would be different than the one offered (Jason Maxiell, anyone?).Sacramento would do backflips for Prince or Amir Johnson; Mad Max might be an opening-day starter at the power forward, but then again so might Wayman Tisdale. But alas, you skeezy non-Sacramentans: Artest at home in the Palace is the hook.

Last year, Ron-Ron was mercilessly booed in Detroit. Artest actually had a decent game, feeding off the negative energy, turning it into bombast and exhilaration. But the level of hatred coursing through the air that night seemed (at least on TV) borderline serious, borderline violent.

Could Detroit fans actually embrace The Ron? I’ll defer to our resident Pistons fan on that query, though I do surely anticipate a Tourette’s-like outburst and some throwing of items.
