Ron Artest To Donate NBA Salary To Mental Health Charities
Theres really only one word that comes to mind after reading about Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artests latest venture in the world of mental health advocacy.

WOW.

Artest is no stranger to mental health advocacy. In case you need a little back story, back in June 2010 Artest gained some publicity for publicly thanking his therapist during an impromptu interview after the Lakers won the 2010 NBA Championship.

1. that's really awesome, but i have to say
that giving away his whole salary sounds like a very manic thing to do. hope he doesn't give away more than he can afford. glad he is giving himself time to think about it.
