Artest Plans To Reach Out To Vick August 29, 2007Posted by Marquis Chapman in Basketball, Football, NBA, NFL, Sports.
NBA star Ron Artest plans to come to Michael Vick’s aide after he heard the Falcon’s QB speech on Monday.
I want to call him and support him, you know, be there for him. [He] lied and then came back and apologized to everybody, I felt that was classy. I was touched that he took full responsibility. I felt that was a real man. I know for a fact he’ll come out a better person.
Surprisingly, Artest did not say anything idiotic or crazy. The NBA star actually sounded like a wise verteran that had learned from his mistakes, and had great advice for any player that has gone through tough times.
I think athletes just gotta be more aware. At times things happen so fast in your life, you just stay living that same lifestyle. You can’t do it no more. I just hope people can take the mistakes I made, mistakes other people are making and just learn from them.
First Marbury and now Artest. Vick probably wishes that he had players that aren’t somewhat crazy backing him up. I’m not so sure that Michael Vick would want somebody like Artest in his corner, but in Vick’s case, he’ll need all the help he can get.
