Michael Jordan: 6 NBA titles tougher than Harden, Westbrook streaks

Share

Westbrook has made history by notching his 10th straight triple double and surpassed Wilt Chamberlain for the record. "Six championships, by all means", Jordan said during a press conference ahead of the NBA All-Star festivities, which will be hosted in Charlotte, N.C.

You wanna score 30 points in 30 straight games, or do you want to win six rings?

Jordan praised both players for what they're doing, nothing that both streaks are hard to accomplish. Jordan answered as you'd expect the greatest of all-time to answer.

"Michael has always been very sharp, very smart", said Peterson, who now works as an assistant general manager for Jordan's Charlotte Hornets. Harden will be suiting up for Team LeBron and Russ will be playing for Team Giannis, and Jordan will likely be closely watching. In a December video clip, James said that his role in leading the Cleveland Cavaliers past the favored Golden State Warriors for the 2016 championship, making National Basketball Association history along the way by overcoming a 3-1 series deficit, "made me the greatest player of all time".

Ladies and gentlemen, that's just a classic line from Jordan. "That's because I never played against all the people that represented the league prior to Michael Jordan".

The connective thread between Jordan's 2009 remarks and those he offered at the news conference was a clear appreciation for players who have helped the National Basketball Association become such a successful enterprise.

The only thing seemingly that has eluded Jordan is ultimate success as an executive and team owner.

I think it's safe to say that the world of sports would be much better if we had some more athletes with the mentality of Jordan.
