Michael Jordan Reminds Everyone Why He’s The GOAT Of Basketball

13 February 2019

Harden has scored at least 30 points in 30 consecutive games for the Houston Rockets, while Westbrook broke Wilt Chamberlain's streak of nine straight triple-doubles for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Western Conference All-Stars James Harden and Russell Westbrook have been putting up video game numbers all season long, and each player is now on a historic streak of production.

When asked about which he thought was a more remarkable accomplishment, Michael Jordan made a decision to not even answer the question.

"Our parents taught us that you can achieve anything you want, but you have to have drive, that motivation - and you have to work hard at it", said James Jordan Jr., who now works as an executive for the Hornets after spending 31 years in the military.

"It shows progression in the league", Jordan said according to ESPN. "Six championships probably", quipped Jordan, who won six NBA Finals titles with the Chicago Bulls between 1991 and 1998.

"It's a constant reminder that I am getting old", Jordan joked.

Now, when fans see the Jumpman logo, they think of Jordan. 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".

Off the court, Jordan marketed his on-court success into a fortune.

"When I hear [greatest ever], I cringe a little bit, because it's a little bit embarrassing, because no one knows".

"I'm very proud of how both guys have done because they're making their mark for the league, and I think it really helps grow the league".

Forbes Magazine estimated Jordan's net worth in 2018 at $1.6 billion and Hornets president Fred Whitfield said he anticipates the All-Star game will have a $100 million economic impact on Charlotte.
