Harden needed a late scoring spree on Monday night to extend his streak to 30 games, scoring 11 points in the final 100 seconds as the Rockets defeated the Dallas Mavericks 120-104.
But Peterson never saw this coming: His roommate becoming an National Basketball Association owner and hosting the league's All-Star game in his home state of North Carolina.
So when Michael Jordan, who is considered by many as the greatest National Basketball Association player of all time, was asked which feat he thinks is harder, he gave the ultimate response. Harden will be suiting up for Team LeBron and Russ will be playing for Team Giannis, and Jordan will likely be closely watching. Westbrook just made history by notching his 10th straight triple-double while surpassing Wilt Chamberlain (a record from 1968), while Harden has scored 30 points or more in 30 consecutive games.
Jordan praised both players for what they're doing, nothing that both streaks are hard to accomplish.
Ladies and gentlemen, that's just a classic line from Jordan.
"When I hear [greatest ever], I cringe a little bit, because it's a little bit embarrassing, because no one knows".
"I think getting the All-Star game here is an accomplishment that will go on his list, and it will stand out for him because it's really not about him", said James Jordan Jr., Michael's older brother.
"Frankly, no", Jordan said Tuesday (Wednesday, Philippine time) in a news conference previewing the All-Star game.
Jordan's mentality is why he was so dominant on the court.
The only thing seemingly that has eluded Jordan is ultimate success as an executive and team owner.
