NBA Star Ron Artest's Sacramento Home Sale Was No Slam Dunk

The funniest thing about the Sacramento Bee story on ex-Sacramento Kingsbasketball player Ron Artest (he now plays for the Los Angeles Lakers), who was having trouble selling his Sacto home, is the paper's attempt to get a quote from him about the situation:

"Artest was busy Thursday night, earning his first NBA championship as his Lakers defeated the Boston Celtics in the seventh game of the NBA finals, and did not respond to Bee efforts to get a comment from him regarding the house."

Hmmm? So strange that Artest wouldn't open up to a reporter during the NBA championship game and celebration about how his home didn't attract any serious buyers when it was priced at $1.85 million.
