“When Adelman had me on the court in Sacramento he used me at every single position,” said Artest, who will wear No. 96 with the Rockets. “Sometimes he would play me at the two, when there was a dominant two such as a Kobe (Bryant) or a Dwyane Wade. Or Steve Nash was killing us one time in Phoenix. He put me at the one. He put me at the five."
“I work on my game every summer so I get better. I don’t make a big jump at one specific thing, but I make a good enough leap at everything to be able to play every position. I’ll be ready. That’s how I play my game."
“Whatever Adelman needs me to do, whether that’s come off the bench, sixth, seventh man, start, I don’t even care. Whatever he needs me to do, I’m 100 percent sure it’s going to work.”
