This article focuses on the views of various basketball coaches in the U.S. about basketball player Ron Artest. In July 2005, Ron Artest said that he was happy at the way the Indiana Pacers team stuck by him. Sometime last week, he announced that he wanted to be traded to the New York Knicks team, which should automatically disqualify him as someone capable of lucid thought because he couldn't stand playing for coach Rick Carlisle and needed to start anew. The Denver Nuggets do not have a good shooting guard and an iconoclastic coach who might actually make it work.
