Now, as the owner for the Charlotte Hornets, Jordan doesn't seem to be excited about teams having that kind of success.

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. To now say that one's greater than the other is being a little bit unfair... I think you're going to see these things have a way of working themselves out over time. The Warriors have kept the corps of last season's championship team and added firepower in Nick Young and Omri Casspi in the offseason.

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.

"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 we have a great draft class coming up next year", Silver told ESPN's Mike & Mike in a recent interview.

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. I won six championships. Durant has pushed back against that theory. "I would never say one is greater than the other".

"Like I'm the reason why (expletive) Orlando couldn't make the playoffs for five, six years in a row?" he said in an interview with USA Today in the spring. However, neither those squads nor the Spurs are given much of an chance to derail the Warriors' path in the West, and the Celtics are the only team viewed as a credible threat to Cavs in the East.

When James famously ditched the Cavs for the Heat in 2010, he helped usher in the era of super teams by uniting with Wade in Miami, along with another prized free agent, Chris Bosh.
