Artest's LaSalle High coach , Bill Aberer, was a SJU grad and he helped guide Ron to SJU. Miami was pushing hard for him. Practice must have been interesting in Ron's freshman year with him, James Felton and Fran all together for the first time.

Well done story. Aside from so much craziness on his part, really have to give Ron credit for sitting there and taking so much criticism, trying to get the help he needed, and willing to make things better with so many key people in his life. Was actually excited watching him win a championship. Could have done without all the rap, however.

Very interesting documentary. A lot of these kids go through much more than we can ever imagine. Glad Ron seems to be in a better place mentally now.

The St. Johns’s portion was pretty brief. They did interview Mike Jarvis who looks much different without the beard.

Unless I missed it, there was no mention of Fran, who recruited Artest to SJU.

Just finished watching the documentary. It was very well done. I wish they had spent a few minutes explaining Ron's motivation and decision to change his name to Metta World Peace.

My guess is that medication had something to do with the decision.

Finally caught the documentary yesterday. Well done. At the end I was hopeful that Ron has a handle on some of his inner demons.
I also thought he really was treated harshly after the Detroit incident. Not sure how any man reacts in a situation with people throwing objects in your face. That whole incident was unacceptable and more fans should have been arrested and prosecuted. Oh well, long time ago.
