Love You, Ron Ron
New Laker Ron Artest was interviewed recently by SI.com's Arash Markazi. Artest decided to take things a step further and set up his own photo shoot -- with his own model, Natalin Avci. The photos weren't scheduled to run anywhere and the shoot was strictly for Artest's own pleasure. Now, we can focus on the fact that an athlete's setting up his own photo shoot for kicks is a little out of the norm, but that's really not important. What's important is that luckily for Hot Clicks Nation, Markazi (follow him on Twitter) came through for us and passed along the pictures.
