Artest: Pistons game was just 'our next game'

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- When Ron Artest walked past the scorer's table -- you remember that table, the one he laid on and then leapt over during the infamous Palace brawl -- he held his right wrist with his left hand and started gesturing toward the crowd.

The gesture was a small flip of his hand with his palm upturned, and Artest did it several more times as he walked toward center court for the opening tip.
