Ron Artest Misses Michael Jackson Too, Y'all

Recently departed Rocket Ron Artest has never had any trouble making headlines on or off the basketball court, so it's easy to forget that occasionally he also fancies himself a musician. Now the ever-misunderstood Artest has put his feelings about Michael Jackson in song with "Michael Michael." Before admitting, "I cry for Mike," Artest calls Jackson (who he never met) his neighbor, except he doesn't say "neighbor." Most puzzling is the line "I know you in heaven/ I hope to see you next year."

Do the Lakers know about this?
