Ron Artest Hosts Ring Series After-Party At Conga Room LA Live After Lakers Win
With 4 seconds left in the game, at Staples Center, the Lakers were down by one to the LA Clippers. Until Derek Fisher took over…
Fisher took an inbounds pass and went to the hoop, banking home the game-winning layup as time expired and improving the Lakers record to 16-6.
As celebrating Lakers fans poured out into Nokia Plaza, many of them found their way across LA Live to The Conga Room. It was there where Ron Artest was hosting a Ring Series after-party for charity. Biz Markie DJ’d the event and former Clipper center, Olden Polynice, presented Artest with an award from the City Of Los Angeles.
Artest signed t-shirts as fans swarmed the stage. The New York product was all smiles as he raised money for charity. He has said that he will be donating either part or all of next year’s salary to charity.
The Lakers are about to embark on a huge seven-game roadtrip. They should get center Andrew Bynum back, during the trip. The Lakers will meet with President Barack Obama on Monday in Washington, D.C.
