Michael Jordan believes super teams are ruining the National Basketball Association

In the Eastern Conference, Kyrie Irving was traded to the Boston Celtics, who also signed Gordon Hayward as a free agent, making them contenders with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Jordan is likely referring to the concentration of talent on the Golden State Warriors' roster.

From Chris Paul joining James Harden in Houston to the Oklahoma City Thunder adding Paul George and Carmelo Anthony to team up with reigning NBA MVP Russell Westbrook, the league is entering an era of super teams. One more team. I couldn't have made the (entire) East better. That owner would be one Michael Jordan, who offered his comments to Cigar Aficionado (while enjoying a Cuban with a glass of whiskey, naturally).

Jordan also talked about the state of Woods at the moment.

"First of all, you're never going to say who's the greatest of all time", he said. "I don't know if I could have survived in this Twitter time where you don't have the privacy that you would want, and what seems to be very innocent could always be misinterpreted".

Michael Jordan said he smokes about six cigars a day.

They said that they have made a decision to respond to growing concerns about the similarities between the two games. The game also peaked at 525,000 concurrent players on Monday , with 3.7m active users on that day alone.

One has to wonder if Jordan thinks his Charlotte Hornets team is going to be garbage this season.

"I never played against Wilt Chamberlain", he noted. It's one more team that you probably would've thought would've been a contender.

"He's in a transitional period; we athletes, we go through that", Jordan said.

Jordan, in speaking with Cigar Aficionado, said that he considers both Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus great, but he would never compare the two because they played in different eras. It's an opportunity these kids have today.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has offered mixed opinions on the topic of "superteams".

Jordan, whose Hornets are certainly not a superteam, was blunt in his assessment of the league, saying it's damaging the competitive balance of the National Basketball Association and that it creates a few teams at the very top that are great and a bunch of teams that are "going to be garbage", per an excerpt tweeted out by Sports Illustrated's Ben Golliver. Other franchises are trying to put their version of super teams out there to knock off the champs.
