Ron Artest Video: Watch Lakers’ Ron-Ron Steal, Dunk and Flex Against Suns

In a season that has been filled with more negatives than positives for Ron Artest, this dunk certainly categorized as a positive for the troubled Lakers forward.

Leading by one in triple-overtime, Artest steals the ball from Steve Nash and then races down the floor before throwing down a thunderous left-handed dunk in the face of Phoenix forward Channing Frye.

Not only was this a memorable dunk, but it was a game-changing play, which gave the Lakers a three-point lead with under two minutes remaining and propelled them to pull out the victory.

This game has to go down as one of, if not the best, games of the 2010-11 NBA season thus far.

It was exciting from start to finish and this game-changing dunk really put an explanation point on just how good this game was.

But who really would have thought that Artest would make the biggest play in a game that had playoff implications on the line for both teams?

It's interesting how Lamar Odom was the only Lakers player who came up to Artest and gave him a high-five for the highlight play. Chances are that if that were Kobe Bryant, the entire team would have surrounded him in a congratulatory celebration.

The best and certainly most entertaining part of this video is how after he throws down the dunk, Artest decides to flex his muscles to the Los Angeles crowd and then proceed to kiss each one of them individually (his muscles, not the crowd).

After watching this, you have to ask yourself, would you really expect anything less from Artest?
