Jordan predicts 'garbage' National Basketball Association teams


In a recent interview with Cigar Aficionado Magazine, His Airness expressed some concerns about competitive balance in the league.

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint, Jordan told Cigar Aficionado (h/t Ben Golliver of SI.com)".

"He's in a transitional period; we athletes, we go through that", Jordan said. And the what changed between that timeframe to now - social media, Twitter, all those types of things that has invaded their personality and their personal times as individuals.

Do you see yourself coaching?

Does that make Russell better than me or make me better than him? "I never played against Jerry West". He is, to me, in a very unique situation.

On leaving the National Basketball Association to play baseball: "Everybody says it was a failed opportunity to play baseball. Yeah, okay, but the effort was there, and the learning curve and the passion was there". "To say he's any less than Jack, I think, is unfair".
