It’s the potential one-on-one matchup that everyone is talking about. No, not Kobe vs. LeBron, it’s much bigger than that. It’s Michael Jordan vs. Ron Artest (or Metta World Peace if you want to play along with the insanity). Artest said on Twitter that he would challenge Jordan to a game of one-on-one to end the lockout.
“Micheal Jordan I challenge you I'll spot you 20 and a bag of cheetos If I win end lockout Keep the Cheetos”
Obviously we can take this as one big joke. If you look down Artest’s Twitter feed it’s pretty clear he just says things for attention. We’re also assuming here that Michael Jordan has the power to single-handedly end the lockout, which I’m pretty sure he doesn’t.
But let’s say we could see this play out, who would you pick to win the matchup? A Ron Artest that’s a little past his prime or Michael Jordan who’s pushing 50? My money is on Jordan. In my experience, you never bet against Jordan, especially if he's getting 20 points.
Either way, it’s
BEST OF MAXIM

Los Angeles Lakers star Ron Artest has sent out a challenge, via his twitter, to NBA legend Michael Jordan.In the tweet, Ron Artest called out the 6-time NBA champion to a 1-on-1 game, and also added that "IF HE WINS" then the NBA lockout would end. Going to guess that if he doesn't win, then the NBA lockout will continue?Also, a few tweets later, Ron Artest took...
Metta World Peace, the basketball players formerly known as Ron Artest, is one weird dude.
On the court, he looks like he’s never dribbled a basketball before. Off the court, well… he changed his name to Metta World Peace. He’s not the brightest guy, but he does have some funny moments.
I remember when one of the local reporters asked him about a late-season Lakers’ losing...
PBT: Ron Artest challenges Michael Jordan to one-on-one to end the labor lockout.
Just so we’re clear; I refuse to call this f%ckhead by his new name. This is pretty much par for the course for good old Ron Ron. I think it’s safe to say there are MORE people that wish your dad got a vasectomy or at least rocked a dome pal.
Ron Artest, AKA Metta World Peace, is by all accounts – and I’m using a technical medical term here – out of his f*cking mind. Thankfully, though, he’s been a breath of fresh air during this NBA lockout with his ambitious efforts of being a “comedian.” Granted, most of his Twitter jokes don’t induce laughs as much as they cause crickets to chirp, but at least the guy...
Yesterday, we recanted Lakers forward Metta World Peace's epic Twitter story and that was only a small bite of what he did on Twitter for that day.Metta decided to put the challenge out to Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan that he wanted to end the NBA lockout via a game of one on one:
Is it weird that I’m thinking of taking Ron Artest Metta World Peace up on this offer? My chest hair is like a brillo pad and I’m sure Metta’s toenails are nicely manicured with very little fungus. Sounds like a win-win to me.
At this point we all just want the NBA lockout to end, one way or another. The League doesn’t seem to be willing to pick up the phone and call Billy Hunter anytime soon to restart negotiation talks and neither does the Union’s lawyers. So Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest aka Metta World Peace took to Twitter yesterday to propose a possible solution. After expressing his...
At this point, just about any way you can think of to end the lockout is good with me. So if it’s a game of one-on-one to 21 between and owner and a player, I’m good with that. Which is exactly what Metta World Peace — the baller formerly known as Ron Artest — proposed…
After witnessing the antics of Ndamukong Suh on Thanksgiving in Ford Field, it made me wonder where I would rank his nervous breakdown with other memorable sports mishaps through the years. This is certainly a list that will stir debate and naysayers, but that is the point of any sports blog. A negative reaction is much more preferable than indifference.

The NBA lockout is getting to Metta World Peace.
The Lakers star, formerly known as Ron Artest, posted a series of tweets Monday night challenging Charlotte Bobcats majority owner Michael Jordan to a game of one-on-one, saying if he beat the Chicago Bulls legend then the two sides would have to agree to end the lockout.
He then unloaded on NBA commissioner David Stern.
