The list of NBA players who are speaking out against Michael Jordan is growing. The latest to have a problem with the way the legendary baller is handling the NBA lockout is Metta World Peace.

When TMZ asks what he thinks of all the players hating on Jordan, the man formerly known as Ron Artest responds, “What do I think of all the players hating on Jordan or what do I think of Jordan forgetting he was a player?”

Explaining the NBA isn’t hating on Jordan, he says “we the same guys that looked up to Michael Jordan when we were kids. The same ones who wanted to fly like Mike and be like Mike.”

Now that Jordan is an owner, MWP sums up the position of many of the players: “Guys just felt like he didn’t support us when we most needed him.”
