Gary Varvel takes note of Ron Artest's contributions to winning a championship with Los Angeles by pointing out the damage he did to the Indiana Pacers. Varvel needs to open his eyes about the flaws of the Pacers organization. This isn't to minimize Artest's behavior. He lost control of his temper and charged into the stands after a "fan" in Detroit. Now, the "fan" is a notorious thug with a long criminal record, but Artest is a professional athlete and should know better. When you are making as much money as pro basketball players do, there is an expectation to hold yourself to a higher standard of behavior than the general public.
