Jordan threw a bit of shade all while respecting the young guys.
It's well documented that James Harden and Russell Westbrook are both in the middle of some pretty impressive scoring streaks. Harden has scored at least 30 points in 30 straight games while Westbrook just beat Wilt Chamberlain's record for the most consecutive games with a triple-double, with 10. These are some pretty incredible personal accomplishments but for NBA legend Michael Jordan, there is one accomplishment that is much more impressive.
"Which is harder from the player's standpoint? Six championships, by all means," Jordan said at a press conference on Tuesday.
"It shows progression in the league," Jordan said according to ESPN. "I am very proud of how both guys have done because they are making a mark for the league, and I think it really helps grow the league."
Of course, Jordan is currently the owner of the Charlotte Hornets who just so happen to be hosting this year's All-Star game. Both Westbrook and Harden will be playing in the all-star showcase and will definitely be looking to impress Jordan. Perhaps Jordan's ring close to home for both players as neither has won an NBA title.
Both were teammates with Kevin Durant just a few years ago, with Durant being the only player to move on and win a title.
