Michael Jordan believes super teams are ruining the National Basketball Association

13 October 2017

"I smoke six cigars a day", Jordan 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". While Jordan did not mention the two great teams, it's safe to assume that they are the #Golden State Warriors and the #Cleveland Cavaliers, who faced off in the NBA Finals in each of the last three seasons. Jordan's Hornets have made it out of the first round of the playoffs just twice since the 2000-01 season.

While the superteam trend has absolutely brought on its own set of concerns in recent years-and while another Warriors title feels like an inevitability barring major injuries to the team-the insane 2017 offseason set up an National Basketball Association season that would appear to have more than a few excellent teams.

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

"It's just hard for me to fathom how there becomes this perception that at the moment there are only two teams that are truly competitive in this league". Kawhi Leonard was the 15th pick in the draft; Isaiah Thomas was the 60th pick in the draft; Draymond Green was the 35th pick in the draft. "To say he's any less than Jack, I think, is unfair".

Weiss and David Benioff, who frequently employ brutal rape scenes as plot devices on the show, are laughing too. I'm not a rapist. "I prefer my women to enjoy sex", he said.

"There's no way, with hindsight, I would've ever called up Larry [Bird], called up Magic [Johnson] and said, 'Hey, look, let's get together and play on one team, '" Jordan said in 2010 (via ESPN). Think back - we had the Lakers and Celtics. "Golden State hadn't won it in 40 years", added Silver. "I never played against Jerry West". Does that make Bill Russell better than me? Like, am I the reason that they're not that good (laughs)?
