You should really read Chris Ballard's fascinating piece on Ricardo Reyes, the Pop-A-Shot king who defeated five NBA stars on Jimmy Kimmel Live. But there was actually supposed to be a sixth NBA player for Reyes to take on. Only there was a problem.
An interesting side note: there was supposed to be a sixth Kimmel opponent, Ron Artest, but then Artest showed up for his interview with Kimmel wearing only boxer shorts. The Lakers handlers, sensing disaster, whisked him away from the studio before he could film his showdown with Ricardo.So, so many questions here. Did Artest drive to the studio in only boxers? Did he not bring any pants? Why? Did he know he was going on TV? Why couldn't he have just put on pants for the pop-a-shot contest? Did Artest have some sort of stipulation that he'd only appear if he got to wear boxers?
Here's the thing though: Artest still went on TV in only boxers. He just didn't film his competition with Reyes in boxers.
