Jordan: Super teams hurt the NBA

Charlotte NC USA- Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan watches his team play the Miami Heat in Game 4 of the NBA Eastern Conference quarterfinals at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte N.C. Monday

Now, as the owner for the Charlotte Hornets, Jordan doesn't seem to be excited about teams having that kind of success.

Jordan, who sparked the Chicago Bulls to six National Basketball Association titles in the 1990s, addressed the topic in an interview with Cigar Aficionado magazine unveiled Thursday on its website. As a response to the Golden State Warriors juggernaut, teams such as the Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics and Minnesota Timberwolves loaded up with All-Stars this offseason.

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint", "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". 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. "I think they're both great and I would never say one is greater than the other". Does that make Bill Russell better than me, or make me better than him? "To now say that one is greater than the other is being a little bit unfair". Tiger evolved it to where it crossed a lot of different boundaries, where it's not just a white guy's sport ― black guys, African-Americans, all minorities play the game.

"Yeah, Jack has got 18 majors and Tiger has got 14".

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.

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 USA city to lift themselves out of poverty. "We athletes go through that".

"So when you try to equate who's the greatest of all time, it's an unfair parallel; it's an unfair choice".

On Tiger Woods, and the advent of social media: "Tiger played at his peak somewhere towards the end of my career". He is, to me, in a very unique situation.

Not surprisingly, Jordan was also asked about his love of cigars. And then what changed between that timeframe to now - social media, Twitter, all those types of things that has invaded their personality and their personal times as individuals.

On his childhood sports idols: "I also grew up a NASCAR fan, a Richard Petty fan".
