MJ says winning six National Basketball Association championships was a lot "harder" than what both All-Stars are doing.
Michael Jordan praised the record-breaking exploits of James Harden and Russell Westbrook on Tuesday, February 12 (Wednesday, February 13, Manila time) before mischievously remarking that both players' achievements pale against his own. "Six championships, by all means".
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.
"It shows progression in the league", Jordan said during an interview at his Hornets facility while discussing the upcoming All-Star weekend.
Harden notched his 30th straight 30-point game in Houston's defeat of the Dallas Mavericks on Monday, becoming only the second player after Wilt Chamberlain to achieve the feat. Harden, who is playing with a strained left shoulder, reached the 30-point mark by swishing a 30-foot pull-up jumper.
Westbrook, meanwhile, is on pace to average a triple-double for the third-consecutive season, and just set a new National Basketball Association record with a streak of 10 consecutive triple-doubles.
Both players will be in Charlotte this weekend for the All-Star game.
