The artist formerly known as Ron Artest is making the media rounds in an attempt to campaign for induction into the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame.
Metta World Peace recently appeared on Van Lathan’s “The Red Pill Podcast” and made it clear that he should be in Springfield.
“When you get Reggie Miller saying, ‘He’s the best defender ever.’ You get Kobe saying, ‘He’s the best defender ever on the wing.’ Michael Jordan (praised me) early on in my career, it’s documented,” World Peace said.
There’s a strong argument that can be made for this. MWP earned four All-NBA Defensive Team honors during his 18-year career. Unfortunately, World Peace earned only one All-Star appearance during that span.
Whether World Peace believes he should be in the HOF is irrelevant. He pretty much said as much.
