Drunk Artest

So who here thinks he was drunk during that brawl at the palace?  A bit of information for you to consider as it pans out. The brawl happened in November of 2004.  This is two years after he left the bulls and the supposed drinking at halftime habit.  He happened to stop the halftime drinking by the time he was legally of age to do it in 2002.  That season (2004) he was coming off of his All-Star and Defensive Player of the Year honors.  He turned 25 a week before the brawl.  

I find it hard to believe that he magically quit drinking at halftime after he left the bulls.  We all know that party mindset personally or know someone very well who has it.  I doubt he magically stopped, he is a "balla" isn't he.  If having a kid didn't slow him down, then why would millions of dollars and a professional basketball career slow it down. If he was drunk for that brawl, I hope he is banned from the league.  Does the NBA really have to become like some of those playground scenes out there, where people drink 40's and smoke blunts, then get out there and ruin the game by jackin up 3's, playin no D, and talking shit.  This is the kind of thing he should have talked about publicly after he retired, he should have kept his mouth shut.
