Michael Jordan concerned about National Basketball Association super teams

Michael Jordan concerned about National Basketball Association super teams

In a recent interview with Cigar Aficionado, Jordan says he feels sorry for Tiger Woods, another high-profile athlete with many vices, and wonders if he could have survived Twitter.

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint", MJ told Cigar Aficionado Magazine. "You're going to have one or two teams that are going to be great, and another 28 teams that are going to be garbage".

He also talked about his friend Tiger Woods, the 14-time Major victor struggling to return to golf after multiple back operations, and said he himself might not have "survived in this Twitter time". Minus the Warriors and Cavaliers, how many other good teams are there?

Jordan, who many believe is the greatest player in National Basketball Association history, said there is one way to compare the two, and that's how much impact the player had on the game.

Regarding Woods, whose Major total ranks second to the 18 won by Jack Nicklaus, Jordan said the injured star is in a transitional phase perhaps made more hard by today's social media.

This move isn't surprising when you consider T-Mobile is pushing unlimited plans more aggressively than it was in 2015. The feature was and still is available to certain T-Mobile subscribers, but that will be changing on November 12.

The Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics all may have something to say about that, but Jordan was likely just using hyperbole to make his point.

Even Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time, whose name is on the most expensive and sought-after sneakers on the planet, wonders if he could have made it in the age of social media.

Jordan also weighed in on the never-ending debate about who is the greatest player of all-time, telling the magazine it was unfair to try to compare anyone who played in different eras.

Who's the GOAT?"I never played against Wilt Chamberlain". They never played with the same equipment. He promised not to smoke more than one a day, presumably lighting up his other daily five from slightly less premium brands. I won six championships; Bill Russell won 11. "No, because we played in different eras". "For me, it was the best thing to happen to me, because it allowed me to go back to the game [of basketball] with a stronger passion". People don't see that.

"Jack is the greatest major champion of all time, but Tiger Woods played by far the best golf".
