Ron Arter also known as "Metta World Peace" doesn't want his co-NBA Players to go overseas and play in a different professional basketball league because he thinks that doing so will further hurt the economy of the USA. As a way of stopping them from going abroad he is willing to play one on one basketball against the respective NBA Team Owners on a condition that if he wins, the owners will be the ones who will propose to end the lockout. Aside from that, he also challenged Dallas' Team Owner Mark Cuban to an arm wrestling competition.
The fans of the NBA liked his idea and it made them admire Ron Artest more...but just recently their admiration dwindled down because Ron seemed to have gone beyond his borders after he challenged the legendary Michael Jordan to a one on one basketball game. That's a no no especially to the people who idolize MJ.
Did he just forget that he's asking the Greatest Of All Time? He is taking too much risk in asking MJ to a game of one on one basketball. If he thinks that he can beat the man just because he's 48 years old now, he should think twice or maybe thrice. That's the GOAT he's asking.
