Michael Jordan WRECKS James Harden and Russell Westbrook

Michael Jordan WRECKS James Harden and Russell Westbrook

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

The former Chicago Bulls great is now the owner of the Charlotte Hornets, who are hosting the All-Star Weekend festivities in his native North Carolina.

Clearly, MJ was joking while staying true to his competitive spirit, though from a team standpoint it's fair to say that he makes a legitimate point, as neither Westbrook or Harden have won an National Basketball Association title despite their undeniable ability to score at will.

"Michael has always been very sharp, very smart", said Peterson, who now works as an assistant general manager for Jordan's Charlotte Hornets.

Both players continued impressive streaks during games Monday. Jordan was asked which was harder, from a player'd standpoint, to achieve: James Harden's streak of 30 straight 30-point games or Russell Westbrook's 10 straight triple doubles.

Wizards Likely Remain Big Underdogs; John Wall Out For a Year
Wall has had three knee surgeries with his first dating back to September 2002 when he missed the first 33 games of the season. The surgery was a "debridement and fix of a Haglund's deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury".

"Frankly, no", Jordan said Tuesday (Wednesday, Philippine time) in a news conference previewing the All-Star game.

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

The Hornets have typically operated at a loss, but league documents showed Jordan's fellow owners sent him more than $130 million in revenue assistance between 2012 and 2017. "Six championships, by all means".

"I'm very proud of how both guys have done because they're making their mark for the league, and I think it really helps grow the league".

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.
