The bottom line is what matters, at least in the mind of Michael Jordan.
Asked about James Harden’s streak of 30 consecutive 30-point games for the Houston Rockets and Russell Westbrook’s 10 triple-doubles in a row for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Jordan, who led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships — two threepeats in the 1990s — didn’t hesitate when asked about what Harden and Westbrook are doing.
“Which is harder from the player’s standpoint?” the Charlotte Hornets owner said Tuesday, flashing an ear-to-ear grin. “Six championships, by all means.”
However, Jordan made it clear he is impressed by what Harden and Westbrook are doing, saying their milestones show “the talent that we have within the league.”
“It shows progression in the league,” Jordan told reporters during an interview at the Hornets’ practice facility while talking about the upcoming All-Star Weekend. “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.”
