Michael Jordan impressed by Harden, Westbrook records

Share

Both Harden and Westbrook will be in Charlotte this weekend for the NBA All-Star Game. But Peterson never saw this coming: His roommate becoming an National Basketball Association owner and hosting the leagues All-Star game in his home state of North Carolina.

Jordan on Tuesday said both achievements were worthy of accolades.

The All-Star game will be played on Sunday (Monday morning, Philippine Time) - Jordan's 56th birthday. In a December video clip, James said that his role in leading the Cleveland Cavaliers past the favored Golden State Warriors for the 2016 championship, making National Basketball Association history along the way by overcoming a 3-1 series deficit, "made me the greatest player of all time".

A reporter made a decision to ask Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan, which feat is more impressive. While Harden was scoring at least 30 points for the 30th straight game, something only Wilt Chamberlain had previously accomplished in the NBA, Westbrook was breaking a Chamberlain mark by notching his 10th straight triple-double.

James Harden and Russell Westbrook have been showing why they are both Western Conference All-Stars with their own respective and impressive streaks.

The only thing seemingly that has eluded Jordan, who turns 56 on Sunday - the day of the All-Star game - is ultimate success as an executive and team owner.

"Which is harder from the player's standpoint?"

On the court, after not being able to make his school varsity as a sophomore, Jordan went on to become a two-time All-American, NCAA champion and the national college player of the year in 1984.

The Hornets have typically operated at a loss, but league documents showed Jordan's fellow owners sent him more than $130 million in revenue assistance between 2012 and 2017.
