"You're never going to say who's the greatest of all time", Jordan said. "Or they're going to have a tough time surviving in the business environment". "To say he's any less than Jack, I think, is unfair". Jordan's Hornets have made it out of the first round of the playoffs just twice since the 2000-01 season. Golden State had a quieter offseason but, of course, that team scored one of the biggest free agent acquisitions ever previous year when Kevin Durant joined the likes of Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. After all, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony joined Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City, Chris Paul teamed up with James Harden in Houston and Boston brought in Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward. "And that's how people are judging certain things", Jordan said. Oddsmakers largely agree, having installed the two teams as 5-12 and 4-1 title favorites, respectively (per ESPN), with the Celtics next closest at 10-1. "I smoke six cigars a day, maybe", he said.
Jordan, whose Hornets are certainly not a superteam, was blunt in his assessment of the league, saying it's damaging the competitive balance of the National Basketball Association and that it creates a few teams at the very top that are great and a bunch of teams that are "going to be garbage", per an excerpt tweeted out by Sports Illustrated's Ben Golliver. I think when you can see the similarities and you understand, this is one way you can judge the tow-how much impact did each change or evolve the game? Does that make Bill Russell better than me or make me better than him? "I would never say one is greater than the other". "I was more into stock vehicle racing than I was into anything else".
