Metta World Peace is one of the best defenders in NBA History, and through his career, he played against the best scorers in the world like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady, Kevin Durant, Allen Iverson and LeBron James.

This week, World Peace sat down with Chris Broussard on the “In The Zone” basketball podcast on FOX Sports and he talked (and gave some insights) about  Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
