It wasn't much of a day for Bryant, whom Jackson revealed after the game had been late for shootaround due to a minor traffic accident in rainy conditions. Bryant, held to 21 points, did not make himself available to the media after the game, but Artest was only too happy to address his ejection. "It happened in the past, it happened in the present, it happened in the future,'' Artest said. "Not just for him. All players (get ejected). That happens a lot of times. You see guys get ejected. Rip Hamilton got ejected (recently) in Detroit. Bob Cousy got ejected ... The only person who never got ejected was Jesus.'' FanHouse.com
Artest was asked if he had checked Jesus' box scores. "No ejections,'' Artest said. "He was 10 for 10s, a lot of 20 for 20s (in shooting). Perfect from the free-throw line. Infinity rebounding stats.'' Artest was on a roll after the game. He even cracked, "I'm giving out some good quotes today, aren't I?'' FanHouse.com
Would you pay $500K to go to LeBron James' birthday party?
Miami Heat's LeBron James is looking for sponsors for his 26th birthday party
Investment opportunities are available for between $10,000-$500,000
The Miami bash will boast A-list celebrities according to marketing firm he hired
James is participating in an 11-stop dinner party tour, set to run until April
(CNN) -- He earns millions of dollars every year, but basketball star LeBron James wants investors to splash out up to $500,000 each to sponsor his lavish 26th birthday celebrations.
The Miami Heat player has hired a marketing firm to find backers willing to help fund his December 30 party, dubbed the "Full Court Birthday Celebration."
James, who earned a reported $14.5 million in salary this year, enlisted SA Global Plus -- whose website shows slides from a presentation given to potential investors.
The sponsorship opportunities range from $10,000 for a single event on his 11-stop "LeBron James Dinner Party Tour" to $500,000 for a season package.
Next week's A-list party will take place at the Coco De Ville Lounge in Miami Beach's Gansevoort Hotel, and the presentation promises an array of stars including athletes, musicians and political figures who "reinvent and set the tone for a chic lifestyle."
The celebrity bash "is royal themed fitting for a birthday celebration of a king, channeling an ambience of extravagant court life."

Potential sponsors will have further chances to catch a glimpse of the self-styled "King" as his celebrations -- which started in New York this month -- keep going until the final date in Atlanta on April 10.
But for someone who pays so much attention to the finer details, his name is spelled "Lebron" throughout the presentation -- at odds with his own website's preference.
It is not the first time the former Cleveland Cavaliers guard, who calls himself "King James" on his Twitter account, has attracted attention away from the basketball court.
The six-time NBA All-Star ended months of speculation about his future in July, when he announced he would be joining the Heat on a live television special called "The Decision."
The broadcast, which led to James becoming a pariah among Cavaliers fans, attracted a reported 10 million viewers.
The Heat will take on two-time defending NBA champions the Lakers in Los Angeles in Saturday's high-profile Christmas clash.

The Lakers are not doing well even though their squad is Great and it is obvious that they could use a change (exactly like Bayern)
Kobe missed 13 shots in a row vs San Antonio , and he also admitted that the loss was his fault
but Phil Jackson had a point by saying that if he was playing , he would not have passed the ball to a guy who is missing that much
The Most stupid thing ever was Getting Steve Blake
the Lakers wanted to sign Either Blake or Ridnour (My FAV NBA PG) , Ridnour even said that he is ready to lower the salary he is asking for from 4 millions to 3 millions a year
Yet The Lakers signed Blake for 4 Millions a year , MORE MONEY FOR LESS QUALITY !!!
Could you make a trade that would get Either Carmelo Anthony or Chris Paul to the Lakers
you can put anyone except Kobe and Pau Gasol
and you can also put a 3rd team in the deal

Psychaz wrote:all my crazy but i would never trade away Odom if i was LA, not for Carmelo anyway, Odom is much more valuable to LA, he's way underrated IMO, he play both SF and PF with ease, very good rebounder, good defense and can hit the 3 , maybe for someone like Dwill or D12 but not Melo
