Metta World Peace: « LeBron James Better Than Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant »

Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace, also known as Ron Artest, weighed in on who he believes is the greatest basketball player of all time.


Despite the fact that he won a title while playing with the legendary Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles, World Peace believes that current Lakers superstar LeBron James is the greatest basketball player ever.

World Peace admitted that Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan was one of his favorite players, but he still chose James.

James is currently in his 17th season and is playing in his 10th NBA Finals.

The 16-time All-Star has the Lakers just one win away from capturing this year’s NBA title.

With a win, James would add a fourth NBA championship to his already insane resume.

The Lakers will take on the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the NBA Finals tonight from the Orlando, Fla. bubble.

“It was a mistake,” World Peace told the Scoop B Radio Podcast back in the summer.

“Actually I’m not going to tell you it was a mistake, it was really aggressive basketball. You got to think how strong Mike is and how competitive Mike is and when we were tangling over each other in the post in the summertime, I tried to move his arm out the way and accidently hit him with my elbow…I definitely didn’t mean to hit him in the ribs, but I was really aggressive; whatever I had to do to deny Mike. I remember the play clear as day – I actually got the offensive foul called against Mike. I also hit the ball and got an offensive foul on him. He had refs in the summertime; which is really good play for me because, it was a great defensive play, but I hurt is ribs and I was like, really sad for a couple of days. You know, I really didn’t like that.”
