Michael Jordan References His Rings When Asked About Westbrook & Harden

Michael Jordan dropped the mic when discussing two current National Basketball Association stars. Harden scored 30 points in the 30th consecutive game, while Westbrook recorded his tenth consecutive triple-double. Both Westbrook and Harden will be playing in the all-star showcase and will definitely be looking to impress Jordan.

Michael Jordan owns approximately 90 percent of the Charlotte Hornets with the current estimated value of the team at $1.2 billion.

The All-Star game will be played on Sunday (Monday morning, Philippine Time) - Jordan's 56th birthday.

Perhaps Jordan's ring close to home for both players as neither has won an National Basketball Association title. While Harden was scoring at least 30 points for the 30th straight game, something only Wilt Chamberlain had previously accomplished in the NBA, Westbrook was breaking a Chamberlain mark by notching his 10th straight triple-double.

"Frankly, no", Jordan said Tuesday (Wednesday, Philippine time) in a news conference previewing the All-Star game. As a team owner, Jordan is now more invested in that success than ever before, and he's apparently not above letting people know that he had more than a little something to do with it in his own right.

"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. "So from a Hornets standpoint, that is on display this week. Six championships probably", quipped Jordan, who won 6 NBA Finals titles with the Chicago Bulls between 1991 and 1998.

Jordan's mentality is why he was so dominant on the court.
