Michael Jordan on National Basketball Association parity: 28 teams 'are going to be garbage'

Michael Jordan on National Basketball Association parity: 28 teams 'are going to be garbage'

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

The fight for small market teams; like his Hornets, having a better way to hold onto their stars has been revised with the addition of supermax contracts, which have allowed the likes of James Harden and Russell Westbrook to nail multi-year extensions for lucrative amounts.

On Tiger Woods, and the advent of social media: "Tiger played at his peak somewhere towards the end of my career". In 2016, shortly after Durant went to Golden State, he said, "I don't think it's good for the league, just to be really clear".

Speaking on the donation, Jordan said: "Through my years of working with Novant Health, I have been impressed with their approach and their commitment to the community".

Four players included in former Liverpool defender's Premier League team of 2017
Centre-backs: Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham)'Alderweireld last season was the outstanding centre-back. Finally, he argued Chelsea forward Eden Hazard is the best Premier League player and should be picked in the team.

He also talked about his pal Tiger Woods, a 14-time major champion golfer struggling to return after multiple back operations, and said he himself might not have "survived in this Twitter time".

"First of all, you're never going to say who's the greatest of all time", he said. "No. I have no patience for coaching".

"Obviously, Jack won more during the time he played; Tiger evolved it to where it crossed a lot of its boundaries, where it's not just a white guys' sport; black guys, African-Americans, you know, all these play the game", Jordan said. "I never played against Jerry West". He indirectly compared Woods' relationship with Jack Nicklaus to his with Bill Russell. To say one is greater than the other is a little bit unfair. He's in a very unique situation. For me to ask an individual to focus on the game the way I played would, in some ways, be unfair. Nicklaus and Russell have more majors and National Basketball Association championships than Tiger and MJ, but does that mean they're better? We've talked. I'm a big fan. Make me better than him?

On his bucket list: "Winning a championship in Charlotte". Celtics have won 17 championships, Lakers 16.
