Metta World Peace Challenges Michael Jordan To End Lockout

Tuesday November 22nd, 2011

Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, has challenged Michael Jordan to a game of one-on-one with the result of the NBA lockout at stake, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"Come on Jordan!! Bring it. One on one. I win lockout over. I'll beat u with my eyes closed and a in and out burger in my right hand!!” World Peace tweeted to Jordan.

World Peace is one of several players who believe Jordan has turned his back on the players with his hard-line stance on lockout negotiations.  The former Bulls’ star was believed to have led a faction of owners who did not want to offer the players a 50-50 split in basketball related income.
