Off Season: Ron Artest Will Speak to Children About Mental Health

Ron Ron

This one is almost too good to be real.

Ron Artest is one of the most loveable players in the league. But he always throws people off every few months or so...he likes to keep us on our toes. We know he's just messing with us.
The last one was when he had everyone talking after the championship game when he gave his psychiatrist a shoutout in his amazing post game speech. The latest is the community work he'll be doing in Montebello, CA, next week. From Daniel Tedford of the San Gabriel Valley Tribune:
OK, maybe you need like a time and place, oh and the reason world champion Los Angeles Laker and game 7 hero Ron Artest is going to be in Montebello tomorrow.
Apparently, he has teamed up with Congresswoman Grace Napolitano (no, really, I'm serious) to raise awareness about mental health stigma's and advocate for the Mental Health in Schools Act, a.k.a. HR 2531.
That's right — Ron Artest is going to be speaking to kids in school about mental health. Oh yeah!
