All-Star game marks latest milestone for Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan & Dwight Howard

Harden has scored 30 points or more in 30 consecutive games.

Forbes Magazine estimated Jordan's net worth in 2018 at $1.6 billion and Hornets president Fred Whitfield said he anticipates the All-Star game will have a $100 million economic impact on Charlotte.

Over the last few months of the National Basketball Association season, James Harden and Russell Westbrook have been on a tear while making National Basketball Association history, in which they're both now on offensive streaks that have put them in a category of their own.

Jordan adds that he is "very proud" of both Harden and Westbrook.

Michael Jordan praised the record-breaking exploits of James Harden and Russell Westbrook on Tuesday before mischievously remarking that both players' achievements pale against his own. "Which is harder from a player's standpoint?"

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.

While maybe unexpected, Peterson said he isn't shocked by what Jordan has achieved.

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.

It's also nice that Jordan gave that debate some fresh material, because hoops fans were recently forced to dig up a 2009 interview he gave, in an attempt to find a telling response to a greatest-ever claim made by LeBron James, who has a 3-6 record in the Finals.

While this remains to be one of the biggest coups in league history, Jordan allegedly did get a lot of help from the association.

On Tuesday, Jordan sounded a decidedly different note.
