Ron Artest was raised with two younger brothers. He started playing basketball while he attended La Salle Academy high school, where he played in the school team. Later, Ron enrolled at the St. John’s University for two years, and played basketball for the Red Storm. He was one of the best players on the team which reached Elite Eight of the NCAA Division I Tournament, however, they lost to the Ohio State. In his last year at the University, Ron received the Haggerty Award and was named into the First-team All-Big East.

Ron entered the 1999 NBA Draft, in which he was selected as the 16th overall pick by the Chicago Bulls. He stayed with the Bulls until the mid of the 2001-2002 season, when he was traded to the Indiana Pacers, with players Brad Miller, Kevin Ollie and Ron Mercer, for Travis Best, Norman Richardson and Jalen Rose, and in addition Chicago was given rights for a second round pick. While in Chicago, Ron played in 175 games, averaging 12.5 points a game, and had four rebounds on average.

Ron stayed in Indiana until 2006, when he asked to be traded after a suspension of 86 games, which he received after he and several other players of Indiana and Detroit Pistons were involved in on court altercation. However, he played his best basketball at Indiana, averaging 18.3 points a game, and had 5.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. He earned All-Star appearance as a reserve in 2004, and was also named as the Defensive Player of The Year in 2004. In 2006 he was traded to the Sacramento Kings for Predrag Stojakovic, and stayed with the Kings until 2008, which increased further his net worth. However he was then traded to the Houston Rockets in 2008, but spent only one season there.

Afterwards, Ron signed a contract with the Los Angeles Lakers worth $33 million for a period of five years, however, in his final year of contract, the Lakers used the amnesty clause and Ron was waived. Following his departure from the Lakers, Ron signed a contract with the New York Knicks, which further increased his net worth; however, in 2014 he was also released by the club.

He continued his basketball career in China, playing for the Sichuan Blue Whales, staying there for several months, which only added to his net worth, and after that he signed a contract with the Italian basketball team Pallacanestro Cantu, before he returned to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2015.

Apart from his successful career as a professional basketball player, Ron is active in the entertainment industry as an actor and hip hop recorder – he has his own reality TV show entitled “They Call Me Crazy”. Ron is also known for founding the Artest Media Group, which has added a lot to his net worth. In 2006, he released the album “My World”, which features guest artists Capone and P. Diddy, among many others.
