Michael Jordan: Six championships harder than streaks

Rockets Thunder Michael Jordan James Harden Russell Westbrook

Michael Jordan was calmly, even quietly, answering questions Tuesday about the NBA All-Star Game when he slyly allowed his legendary competitiveness to emerge. Harden's streak is the longest since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976-77, though Chamberlain holds the all-time record with 65 consecutive 30-point games during the 1961-62 season. The GOAT took the opportunity to take a shot at both Harden and Westbrook on Tuesday.

The All-Star game will be played on Sunday (Monday morning, Philippine Time) - Jordan's 56th birthday.

Michael Jordan said James Harden's streak of 30 straight 30-point games and Russell Westbrook's 10 straight triple-doubles are both impressive and tough to accomplish. The six-time National Basketball Association champion had an epic response. "So from a Hornets standpoint, that is on display this week".

The legendary Michael Jordan praises the record-breaking National Basketball Association stars, but quips: "Which is harder from a player's standpoint?"

"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. 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.

The NBA approved the purchase of the Hornets by Jordan with just $30 million in cash.

Off the court, Jordan marketed his on-court success into a fortune.

"Our parents taught us that you can achieve anything you want, but you have to have drive, that motivation - and you have to work hard at it", said James Jordan Jr., who now works as an executive for the Hornets after spending 31 years in the military.
