"Michael Jordan didn't say that about you...why would LeBron say that?"-Metta Sandiford-Artest says Charles Barkley doubts MJ and LeBron respected him

According to Sandiford-Artest, MJ said sometime in 2002 that he was “his favorite player,” and before he left the Indiana Pacers for the Sacramento Kings, James said he was “happy he left the East.” In all fairness, it sounded real. But not for Sir Charles

In a prestigious league such as the NBA, it's only fitting that the best players acknowledge the qualities of their peers. The same principle applies to legends and the younger generation of NBA stars.

In the past, we've seen and heard  and  laud their fellow NBA greats, and there is an array of them out there. However, many may not know this, but apparently, MJ and "King James" also praised  at one point.

Arguably, those accolades could make a case for the Hall of Fame. But for Metta Sandiford-Artest, those compliments from the all-time greats have already made him one.

 World Peace reflected. 

It is unlikely that Jordan and James would verify those testimonials Metta was talking about. Whatever the truth is, what remains absolute is that a player named Ron Artest or Metta Sandiford-Artest once reached the heights.
