Michael Jordan impressed by Harden, Westbrook records


He recognized both players for the impressive marks, noting that both streaks are hard to accomplish. Harden scored 30 points in the 30th consecutive game, while Westbrook recorded his tenth consecutive triple-double.

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

Michael Jordan dropped the mic when discussing two current National Basketball Association stars. Westbrook has made history by notching his 10th straight triple double and surpassed Wilt Chamberlain for the record.

On the court, after not being able to make his school varsity as a sophomore, Jordan went on to become a two-time All-American, NCAA champion and the national college player of the year in 1984. But Peterson never saw this coming: His roommate becoming an National Basketball Association owner and hosting the leagues All-Star game in his home state of North Carolina.

Ladies and gentlemen, that's just a classic line from Jordan. The GOAT took the opportunity to take a shot at both Harden and Westbrook on Tuesday.

INGLEWOOD, CA - JUNE 12: Guard Michael Jordan #23 of the Chicago Bulls sits nexts to his wife Juanita and his dad James while hugging the NBA Championship Trophy after the Bulls defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 4-1 after Game 5 of the NBA Finals on June 12, 1991 at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood, California.

"When I hear [greatest ever], I cringe a little bit, because it's a little bit embarrassing, because no one knows".

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. "That's because I never played against all the people that represented the league prior to Michael Jordan".
