Artest staying or going?
December, 18, 2005
NEW YORK -- Rudy Tomjanovich was at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night to scout the Pacers-Knicks game, which raised a few eyebrows given the Lakers' interest in Ron Artest. But Tomjanovich said he was not looking at any particular player, and he even asked if Ron Artest would be playing when he stopped by the press room before tipoff.
In the Indiana locker room prior to tipoff, Stephen Jackson was talking about how he had spoken on the phone Friday night with Artest, who was feeling remorseful and wanted to remain with the Pacers.
