Ron Artest has changed his jersey number again. For the 2010-2011 season, Artest will switch from 37 to 15, his college number at St. John’s and the first number he wore in his NBA career. Can you imagine the frustration of league officials: “Ron changed his number AGAIN??” No one knows why Ron Ron gets number-happy every season. Maybe he’s bound by legal obligation to change his number at least twice every year. Maybe he really really enjoys filling out forms. Whatever the case, loves him some new jersey numbers. Here’s a breakdown of all his numbers and what he says they represent.

Indiana Pacers:
15 – Artest’s father wore 51, so Ron flipped it to 15 and made it his own.
23 – He wore this in honor of Michael Jordan
91 – He wore this in honor of his twin Dennis Rodman

Sacramento Kings
93 – Stands for qB, which represents his neighborhood, Queensbridge.

Houston Rockets
96 – Queensbridge with lowercase letters (qb)

L.A. Lakers
37 – Represents the number of weeks Michael Jackson’s Thriller reigned atop the chart
15 – Back to his roots?
