The NBA has suspended Ron Artest for Game Two of the Kings’ Western Conference playoff series against the Spurs after Artest clobbered Manu Ginobli with his forearm during yesterday’s Game One blowout.

There’s no truth to the rumor Artest’s wages for Game Two will automatically be transfered to the promotion and marketing efforts of the Maloof brothers’ new record label, nor their remarkably bad initial signing.
