Metta World Peace says his childhood hero Michael Jordan left the NBA players high and dry in the never-ending lockout drama -- by forgetting he was once one of them ... and acting like every other stubborn owner.

Jordan -- the Charlotte Bobcats' big cheese -- is among a group of NBA owners who are taking a hard line with the players in the lockout negotiations.

According to MWP, the players don't hate His Airness ... they just feel like, "he didn't support us when we most needed him."

HE FORGETS JORDAN PLAYED IN THE ERA WHEN PLAYERS ACTUALLY EARNED THEIR BIG CONTRACT NOT JUST NEGOTIATED ONE. WHEN MJ PLAYED ROOKIES DIDN'T MAKE MORE THAN PROVEN VETS AND ENDORSEMENT DEALS WERE REWARDS AND CASH COWS TO PROVEN PLAYERS. ALSO MJ NEVER MADE HIS BIG MONEY FROM BASKETBALL BUT FROM HIS ENDORSEMENTS. SO HELL YEAH HE HAS AN OWNERS MINDSET B/C OF HOW HIS CAREER WAS STRUCTURED SO WHY ARE THE PLAYERS SHOCKED. THE OLD SCHOOL PLAYERS HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT TODAY'S PLAYERS WERE SPOILED AND MOST OF THEM UNDESERVING SO ITS NOT JUST MJ HE JUST HAPPENS TO BE AN OWNER.......JENNY JONES!!!
