Michael Jordan on Tiger Jack'I would never say one is greater than the other

Count Michael Jordan as one of the naysayers of super teams.

In the past few months, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder have added star talent to their rosters, trying to match the Warriors, who last season united Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry to form a dominant squad that claimed a second title in three seasons. In an interview with Cigar Aficionado, Jordan said the superteam era will leave the league with one or two great teams while the 28 other teams "are going to be garbage". "My biggest problem from a competitive standpoint is the focus of today's athlete".

Jordan' s spokesperson Estee Portnoy said Jordan was largely spurred by a 2014 study from Harvard and the University of California that found poor children in Charlotte have the worst odds of those in any big U.S. city to lift themselves out of poverty.

Jordan will fund two Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics that are projected to open in late 2020.

"Obviously, Jack won more during the time he played; Tiger evolved it to where it crossed a lot of its boundaries, where it's not just a white guys' sport; black guys, African-Americans, you know, all these play the game", Jordan said.

"I never played against Wilt Chamberlain", he noted. To say one is greater than the other is a little bit unfair. "I never played against Jerry West". Bill Russell won 11. "No, because we played in different eras".

"I have no patience for coaching".

On his childhood sports idols: "I also grew up a NASCAR fan, a Richard Petty fan". Like, am I the reason that they're not that good (laughs)? "And if he didn't do it, there's no telling where my emotions would be".

Not surprisingly, Jordan was also asked about his love of cigars.

The Chicago Bulls legend and six-time National Basketball Association champion who now owns the Charlotte Hornets shared his thoughts on stars around the league joining forces in an interview with Cigar Aficionado magazine.
