Former Rocket Ron Artest Set for Dancing With The Stars
Maybe he's doing it to improve his balance. Last night, ABC announced that former Houston Rocket and current L.A. Laker forward Ron Artest will join the motley crew of Nancy Grace, Carson Kressley, Rob Kardashian and others on the ninth season of Dancing with the Stars, which will premiere on September 19. According to a press release, dancers will be required to perform either a Viennese waltz or a cha-cha in the first episode.
Also in the cast are David Arquette, Chaz Bono, Elisabetta Canalis, Kristin Cavallari, Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez, Chynna Phillips and Hope Solo.
Artest only spent one season with the Rockets, in 2008-2009, before heading to LaLaLand to play for the Lakers.
