Ron Artest-themed T-shirt gives credit where credit is due

Artest_Thanks
I know the Los Angeles Lakers' Game 7 win over the Boston Celtics for their 16th NBA championship is now a month old, but there still seems to be a lot of Laker-related merchandise floating around town.

My new favorite is a T-shirt I spotted in the window of a 3rd Street boutique a few weeks ago, and I couldn't stop chuckling about it so Sunday I stopped by and snapped up one for myself -- and a couple more for the Laker fans in my life.

The yellow T-shirt is screen-printed in purple with the image of a basketball and the words "I want to thank my psychiatrist," a reference to Ron Artest's post-win interview shout-out to his own therapist, whom he credited with helping him improve his game.

I've since seen a handful of similar shirts floating around the Internet, but this is by far the best-looking of the bunch. I picked mine up at the Kingsbury shop (a few doors west of Joan's on Third) for $15 each, but if you''re looking to score one, you better move fast. The T-shirts have been a popular seller according to the guy behind the counter, and only a handful of the shirts are left.

*[UPDATED 7/19/10 12:06 PM]: We've also been informed that the T-shirt can be purchased online from another source by clicking here.

Kingsbury, 8366 W. 3rd St.,  11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

Ron Artest did not shrink from psychotherapy
