Michael Jordan: Six championships harder than streaks

Jordan 6 NBA titles tougher than Harden Westbrook streaks

"I think getting the All-Star game here is an accomplishment that will go on his list, and it will stand out for him because it's really not about him", said James Jordan Jr., Michael's older brother.

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.

The GOAT took the opportunity to take a shot at both Harden and Westbrook on Tuesday. Harden has scored at least 30 points in 30 straight games while Westbrook just beat Wilt Chamberlain's record for the most consecutive games with a triple-double, with 10.

Jordan added that Harden and Westrbook's streaks show how far the league has come from a talent standpoint.

"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. "Six championships, by all means", Jordan said during a press conference ahead of the NBA All-Star festivities, which will be hosted in Charlotte, N.C.

It might not have been a coincidence that as Jordan basked in the laughter his line provoked among the assembled media, his hand moved to the ring he was wearing.

It's also nice that Jordan gave that debate some fresh material, because hoops fans were recently forced to dig up a 2009 interview he gave, in an attempt to find a telling response to a greatest-ever claim made by LeBron James, who has a 3-6 record in the Finals.

"He's excited for the National Basketball Association to come to his home state and play in the building of the team he owns", said Curry, the Hornets color commentator and former National Basketball Association player. "He only knows one way to do it, and that is big time". "That's because I never played against all the people that represented the league prior to Michael Jordan".
