I don't pretend to know why Artest wanted out. I'm not even writing this diary so much as to even levy an opinion as I am to let Pacer fans know what the Kings beat writer, Sam Amick, said about Artest & Mike Wells.It reminded me of Artest's trade demand from Indiana only in this sense: when Ron wants to speak up, he'll speak up. When that story was broken by the Indianapolis Star's Pacers beat writer Mike Wells, he took all sorts of grief from inside the organization and out for allegedly stirring the pot, as if he tried to get Artest to say he wanted out. The truth, as told to me by Wells? Artest came his way, letting him know they needed to talk on the record and knowing full well what he was doing. As I said I just thought everyone round these parts should know. I'm sure many Pacers fans already knew this but I found it interesting nonetheless.
