Michael Jordan hasn’t been shy about expressing his opinion that his era of basketball was better than the current era.
Jordan appeared on the cover of Cigar Aficionado, and he discussed his distaste for the current “super team era” in the NBA.
“I think it’s going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint. You’re going to have one or two teams that are going to be great, and another 28 teams that are going to be garbage. Or they’re going to have a tough time surviving in the business environment.”
It’s always funny to hear Jordan comment on super teams considering how dominant his Chicago Bulls were in the 90’s. The Golden State Warriors have been dominant over the last few seasons, and their run has been reminiscent of Chicago’s six-title run in the 90s.
The Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers have arguably been a good bit better than the rest of the league over the last three years, and it looks like it could be more of the same in 2017.
Unrelated to the NBA, Jordan also said he smokes six cigars a day. Six! That’s… a bit much. But MJ has always gone above and beyond.
