Ron Artest and Doris Burke: Greatest Interview Ever?

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: From Tha Malice N' Tha Palace to charming the world with a sincere and honest interview following the Los Angeles Lakers winning the NBA Title in a close game-seven against the upstart Boston Celtics.

Yes, it's been a wild ride for Ron Artest, the somewhat unstable, but good natured three-man for the world champion Lakers. Even his harshest critic had to smile after watching Queensbridge shout out his hood, give props to the club, thank his doctor and psychiatrist, and promote his new hip hop single in a quick conversation with ABC's stunned sideline reporter Doris Burke.

There's only question left for Artest: what on earth will he do next?

Is this the greatest interview ever? Watch Artest in the clip below and get at us with thoughts?

ABC wants revenge on CNN, re-airs LeBron James Nightline interview

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: You knew ABC would respond.

Clearly, the rights holder for the NBA Finals wasn't pleased that LeBron James' upcoming interview on CNN with Larry King was making headlines. After all, CNN is ABC's rival. And The Two Kings were upstaging the championship series. 

In an attempt to minimize the King interview, ABC announced on Thursday that they'd be re-airing their Nightline interview with James following game one of the NBA Finals.

So ABC and CNN are competing over James. This will be repeated on July 1st when the three-man becomes a free agent, only teams, not media conglomerates, will be doing the competing.

Watch the Nighline feature with James and get at us with thoughts in the comment box below.
