Lakers star Ron Artest made the decision to be on "Dancing with the Stars" after his daughter, 8, urged him on. "My daughter Diamond was like, 'Daddy, you should do it,'" Artest told People.
The proud father apparently can't say no to Diamond, who battled cancer when she was 4. Artest turned his opportunity to be on "Dancing" into a charitable cause. "She asked me to do it, and I thought I could dance and raise some money for cancer research. I'm going to donate my profits," the Lakers forward explained.
