Jordan not a fan of National Basketball Association 'superteams'


Jordan is one of the few that has matched Woods' global fame so it was interesting to hear him talk about Big Cat in a recent interview with Cigar Aficionado.

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint", Jordan told Cigar Aficionado magazine.

"You're never going to say who's the greatest of all time", Jordan said.

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".

Do you agree? Are superteams bad for basketball?

But Jordan is likely alluding to the upper half of the league, where teams are attempting to catch up to the Warriors and Cavaliers but not gaining much ground.

BASKETBALL legend Michael Jordan predicts the NBA will have 28 "garbage" clubs because one or two franchises have cherry-picked the best talent to create "super teams". There is not really even a close second - perhaps the Cleveland Cavaliers? Or what about the talent-heavy Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics?

Michael Jordan will grace the cover of Cigar Aficionado, the American magazine dedicated to cigar culture and lifestyle, for it's 25th anniversary issue set to hit newstands October 31, it was announced Thursday.

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. Tiger played in his peak somewhere towards the end of my career. I never played against Jerry West. To say one is greater than the other is a little bit unfair. "All they think about is, 'He batted.202, and he struck out a certain number of times.' Yeah, OK".

Past greats of the game often lament current All-Star players joining forces as it was rarely done in their time.
