Ron Artest wants to play Michael Jordan 1-on-1 to end lockout
Metta World Peace, as the former St. John’s star is now known, has been throwing out ideas on Twitter recently as the labor battle between owners and players continues to rage on with no end in sight. Metta – or do we call him World Peace on second reference? – challenged Michael Jordan to a game of one-on-one Tuesday with the fate of the two sides resting in the balance. Michael Jordan I challenge you I’ll spot you 20 and a bag of cheetos If I win end lockout Keep the cheetos" he tweeted.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It doesn’t matter how it ends. It only matters that it does end.
If it takes Ron Artest beating Michael Jordan in one-on-one to end the NBA’s five-month old lockout, so be it. The fact that Artest wants to throw in a bag of cheetos is irrelevant.
Something else is worth noting: Jordan is a target.
The shine has come off ‘His Airness’ since he took such a hardline as owner of the Charlotte Bobcats during negotiations.
Not long ago, Jordan the player was rather direct when telling former Washington Wizards owner Abe Pollin that he shouldn’t own a team if he can’t make money or turn a profit.
Jordan, of course, has gone against his word. Expect the backlash to continue after the Collective Bargaining Agreement is settled.
