Michael Jordan on National Basketball Association parity: 28 teams 'are going to be garbage'

Michael Jordan concerned about NBA super teams Michael Jordan on NBA Superteams: '28 Teams That Are Going to Be Garbage'
Lucia Summers | 13 October, 2017, 08:07

Count Michael Jordan among those who are not fans of the NBA's recent "superteam" trend.

Jordan did an interview with.wait for it.Cigar Aficionado for the magazine's upcoming 25th anniversary issue that hits newstands on October 31, and he was asked how often he smokes.

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint, Jordan told Cigar Aficionado (h/t Ben Golliver of SI.com)".

"You're never going to say who's the greatest of all time", Jordan said.

"I have no patience for coaching", he said.

Of course as the days progress that option will diminish and as time goes by we will continue to reassess our searching options. A crocodile reportedly tried to drag Peter Rowsell, 19, from a tent by his foot at Palm Creek in the Northern Territory.

In those championship seasons from 1991-93 and 1996-98, Jordan's teams won 61, 67, 57, 72, 69 and 62 games, dominating the league. 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.

"There's no way, with hindsight, I would've ever called up Larry [Bird], called up Magic [Johnson] and said, 'Hey, look, let's get together and play on one team, '" Jordan said in 2010 (via ESPN).

In an interview with Cigar Aficionado, Jordan said that having just a few teams building collections of star players ruins the league's parity. I won six championships; Bill Russell won 11.

"I don't know if I could have survived in this Twitter time where you don't have the privacy that you would want". One, you're in Cleveland right now, that franchise before past year had never won in the history of the National Basketball Association.

Some have cited Kevin Durant's decision to sign with Golden State as a free agent in 2016 as a move that worsened the NBA's competitive balance. He indirectly compared Woods' relationship with Jack Nicklaus to his with Bill Russell. It's one more team that you probably would've thought would've been a contender. However, neither those squads nor the Spurs are given much of an chance to derail the Warriors' path in the West, and the Celtics are the only team viewed as a credible threat to Cavs in the East. "I would never say one is greater than the other".
