Michael Jordan speaks out against National Basketball Association super teams

Charlotte NC USA- Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan watches his team play the Miami Heat in Game 4 of the NBA Eastern Conference quarterfinals at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte N.C. Monday

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint", "You're going to have one or two teams that are going to be great, and another 28 teams that are going to be garbage".

"I don't know if I could have survived in this Twitter time where you don't have the privacy you would want".

They aren't the only teams with a conglomeration of stars: The Oklahoma City Thunder boast Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George; the Houston Rockets have Chris Paul and James Harden; and Boston Celtics have Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward and Al Horford.

Charlotte managed to get Dwight Howard via trade and the team will have to improve to keep rising star Kemba Walker on the roster before he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2019.

It's not hard to figure out which top teams he believes are super teams, just check the NBA Finals the last three years. "I would never say one is greater than the other". To say one is greater than the other is a little bit unfair.

Interestingly enough, Jordan was on the Bulls when they won multiple titles in the 1990s, along with Steve Kerr, who is the head coach of the Warriors.




"When I hear people say that [Golden State and Cleveland] are now the two teams that are dynasties". "I think you're going to see these things have a way of working themselves out over time".

On who is the greatest of all time: "I never played against Wilt Chamberlain".

"He in a transitional period", Jordan said. Bill Russell won 11. Tiger evolved it to where it crossed a lot of different boundaries, where it's not just a white guy's sport - black guys, African-Americans, all minorities play the game. Does that make Bill Russell better than me or make me better than him? For me, it was the best thing to happen to me, because it allowed me to go back to the game [of basketball] with a stronger passion. We've talked. I'm a big fan.

Jordan, who many believe is the greatest player in National Basketball Association history, said there is one way to compare the two, and that's how much impact the player had on the game. Additionally, the 54-year-old revealed in the interview that he smokes six cigars a day.

"I have no patience for coaching".
