Michael Jordan concerned about NBA super 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)". To now say that one's greater than the other is being a little bit unfair... I don't know if I could have survived in this Twitter time, where you don't have the privacy that you would want. After all, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony joined Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City, Chris Paul teamed up with James Harden in Houston and Boston brought in Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward.

Charlotte managed to get Dwight Howard via trade and the team will have to improve to keep rising star Kemba Walker on the roster before he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2019.

"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.

When it comes to who's the greatest golfer of all time, don't expect Michael Jordan to give an answer.

"I never played against Wilt Chamberlain, Jordan said".

"When I hear people say that [Golden State and Cleveland] are now the two teams that are dynasties".

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 his childhood sports idols: "I also grew up a NASCAR fan, a Richard Petty fan".

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".

Jordan, 54, also said he lacks the patience to be a coach, saying his biggest problem is the focus level of today's players. Celtics have won 17 championships, Lakers 16.
