Michael Jordan References His Rings When Asked About Westbrook & Harden

Harden's streak is the longest since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976-77, though Chamberlain holds the all-time record with 65 consecutive 30-point games during the 1961-62 season.

The only thing seemingly that has eluded Jordan, who turns 56 on Sunday - the day of the All-Star game - is ultimate success as an executive and team owner.

"I am very proud of how both guys have done because they are making a mark for the league, and I think it really helps grow the league".

The Chicago Bulls legend was asked which was more impressive: James Harden's 30 straight games scoring at least 30 points or Russell Westbrook's 10 straight triple-doubles. "So from a Hornets standpoint, that is on display this week".

"Michael has always been very sharp, very smart", said Peterson, who now works as an assistant general manager for Jordan's Charlotte Hornets.

Theresa May asks MPs for more time on Brexit
Mr Corbyn said Mrs May "is playing for time and playing with people's jobs, our economic security and the future of our industry". In the past, Corbyn repeatedly called for a general election should the prime minister fail to get a deal approved by Parliament.

It might not have been a coincidence that as Jordan basked in the laughter his line provoked among the assembled media, his hand moved to the ring he was wearing.

Looking back now, Peterson said he should have known what Jordan's parents instilled in him: He could achieve anything and he was destined for something extraordinary.

"It shows progression in the league", Jordan said according to ESPN.

Michael Jordan was calmly, even quietly, answering questions Tuesday about the NBA All-Star Game when he slyly allowed his legendary competitiveness to emerge.

Jordan's mentality is why he was so dominant on the court. It is said that at that point in time, the league was also highly invested in the five-time champion's purchase of an National Basketball Association franchise.
